Vol. 8 No. 1 (2020): Education Policies and Changes in the Teaching Profession
Dalila Andrade Oliveira and Sofia Viseu [invited editors]
This thematic issue aims to present a set of empirical-based studies focused on the effects of the ongoing changes in education policies on the restructuring of the teaching profession. More precisely, from Latin American geographies, the issue shows how teaching profession reconfiguration has been operated in the context of the processes of transnational governance in education. Therefore, the thematic issue invites its readers to reflect on changes in the work and teaching profession, namely in the training and socio-professional trajectories, in teachers’ profile, initial entry, assessment and career progression. The changes regarding the work and teaching profession are conceived as part of New Public Management reforms, whose transnational circulation is associated with the intervention of multiple international organizations, through agenda and rule-setting and rule-following.
