Big change question: are teachers' working rights pursued and/or achieved at the expense of students' learning rights?

Jasman, Anne (2007) Big change question: are teachers' working rights pursued and/or achieved at the expense of students' learning rights? Journal of Educational Change, 8 (1). pp. 85-90. ISSN 1389-2843

Abstract

The author reflects on the issue about the tendency of teachers to sacrifice the learning rights of students in their aim to achieve their working rights. She emphasizes that this claim is false by citing the situation of public schools in England. She presents that the improved working conditions of teachers have contributed to the improvement in the opportunities for children to learn.
