“Is teachers’ ‘voice’ enough?” My presentation at Northern Rocks 2015 Conference

June 13, 2015 — 2 Comments

imageI am happy to be part of the Northern Rocks 2015 conference organised by Debra Kidd and Emma Ann Hardy.  My presentation/workshop is based on a chapter I wrote with Alison Gilliland for the book ‘Flip the System: changing education from the ground up’, edited by Rene Kneyber and Jelmer Evers (book details here and project details here).

The chapter is called ‘The teachers’ voice: teacher unions at the heart of a new democratic professionalism‘ – you can download a PDF version of the article here – Teachers’ voice and teacher unionsv3

In the presentation I refer to an article in Forum by Stephen Ball – it is very short, but clear and powerful – you can download it here  3_Ball_FORUM_57_1_web   – thank you to Forum for permission to reproduce.

The presentation explores how teachers can be at the heart of this democratic vision of education.

My powerpoint from Northern Rocks is here – the downloadable version has some links in
