A Qualitative Study of the Teaching of Modern Greek in Western Australia under the "Seconded Teachers from Greece Scheme": Implications for Other Similar Schemes

Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v36 n11 p1-12 Nov 2011
The aim of the study reported in this paper was to develop an understanding of how the key stakeholders in Western Australia (WA) "dealt with" the teaching of Modern Greek (Greek) as a second language under the "Seconded Teachers from Greece Scheme" (STGS). It addressed a deficit in research in the field not only in relation to WA, but Australia-wide. We report that the stakeholders moved through three stages, namely, the stage of idealism, the stage of conflict, and the stage of cooperation. The study has implications for the development of policy, practice, and future research for the STGS and other similar schemes.
