How has feminism influenced contemporary educational practices? Is feminism relevant to today's teachers? Feminism and the Classroom Teacher undertakes a feminist analysis of the work and everyday realities of the school teacher, providing evidence that feminism is still relevant as a way of thinking about the social work and as a lived reality.
Providing a unique contribution to the literature in the area of gender and education, the authors' objective is to articulate the educational discourses of gender - how gender is constructed, performed and sustained through discourse and material practices. The overall aim of the book is to ascertain the extent to which women teachers specifically, and the feminist project more generally, have contributed to theoretical understandings and practical accomplishments of teaching.
