Dahlbeck, Johan – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2017
In this Spinozist defence of the educational promotion of students' autonomy I argue for a deterministic position where freedom of will is deemed unrealistic in the metaphysical sense, but important in the sense that it is an undeniable psychological fact. The paper is structured in three parts. The first part investigates the concept of autonomy…

Oberfield, Zachary W. – American Educational Research Journal, 2016
Public charter schools (PCS) are thought to succeed because they have greater autonomy and are held more accountable than traditional public schools (TPS). Though teachers are central to this expectation, there is little evidence about whether teachers in PCS enjoy more autonomy and are held more accountable than teachers in TPS. Also, it is…

Wermke, Wieland; Forsberg, Eva – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2017
This article discusses teacher autonomy in the case of the Swedish teaching profession since the 1980s.

In order to handle this…
