Organising teaching: Developing the power of the profession

published 17 May 2017 updated 7 January 2022

This study reports on the experience of several teacher unions as they respond to the challenges facing teachers in a range of national contexts: Chile, Kenya, New Zealand, Poland, Scotland, Turkey, and the United States of America.

These challenges arise out of the global educational reform movement in education that emphasises particular policy orthodoxies – standardised curricula, high stakes testing, system fragmentation, and the creation of quasi-markets.
