The Public Expression of Citizen Teachers
Grumet, Madeleine R.
Journal of Teacher Education, v61 n1-2 p66-76 2010
The imposition of the audit culture on schooling has severely limited teachers' freedom and dignity, exacerbating traditions of teacher education and employment that are infantilizing. If teachers are to participate in the politics that determine curriculum and pedagogy, education programs must provide differentiated credentials that welcome adults into teaching and offer insight into the processes of political organizing and public speech.
