Churchill, Rick and Williamson, John (2004) Teachers' work lives in an environment of continual educational change: Australian perspectives. In: New realities of secondary teachers' work lives. Symposium Books, Didcot, Oxford, UK, pp. 29-55. ISBN 1-873927-14-2

Abstract

The interview data gathered in the study indicate that, despite teachers' discourse being still rooted firmly in the genre of Fullan's (1995) multiple innovations era, there are a number of new realities for teachers at work in today's schools. Undeniably, it is clear that some of these realities have been part of teachers' working lives for a number of years, and are thus somewhat less 'new' than the others. However, it is the simultaneous co-existence of all seven factors that has important implications for teachers and their work lives in Australian state schools from the time of the late 1990s.
