Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


'This book is a wonderfully intimate account of the feelings of teachers about their managers, and a useful staff development tool at INSET or for personal reflection...One of the excellent strands in this book is the end section of each chapter - A Management Perspective: Issues for Consideration - which will provoke much discussion within actual and aspiring management. Taken out of context each is thought- provoking; in context professionality will be challenged. Recommended for those wishing to improve their management skills, and the seriously nosy!' - Education Review Teacher Morale, Job Satisfaction and Motivation focuses on the much neglected perspective of the 'managed' teacher. The author draws upon her research with primary school teachers to provide a unique and fascinating insight into what influences teachers' attitudes to their jobs. The analysis has wide applicability to many different types of organizations.Throughout this book, teachers' own comments illustrate the intricacies of morale, job satisfaction and motivation, and enhance our understanding of how appropriate school management and leadership can get the best out of teaching staff.The fascinating vignettes of teachers' working lives will appeal to all who are interested in understanding life in schools.
