Number 3 in the series. From the cover: This is the first of two volumes which explores the contemporary situation of teachers careers and teachers lives in the context of falling roles, educational cuts and government demands for fundamental change in educational processes. Each of the papers is based upon recent or ongoing empirical work employing qualitative observation or life history interview methods. They reflect the words, experiences and problems facing teachers in the schools of the 1980s. The book offers significant conceptual development in the study of teachers careers and in the introductory paper the editors have presented a synthesis of the current state of theoretical understanding in the area. And yet the book also speaks directly to teachers and students who are interested to understand their profession and the changes they are confronted with The second volume is entitled The Teachers Life and Work.
