Synopsis

Teachers from nine countries are profiled, focusing on the practices teachers use, the roles they occupy, and how the conditions of their work affect the quality of their worklife. Similarities and differences between countries regarding teachers' practices, roles and responsibilities, work conditions, job stress and job satisfaction, and centrality of work are explored. This book enables teachers in any country to compare their experiences with those of teachers in several other countries and thereby develop a cross-cultural perspective on their work, as well as to promote a sense of international professional identity.
