In an increasingly centralized education system, how can teachers recover the freedom to make their own decisions?

Originally published in 1990, the teaching profession had seldom been under greater pressure. Teachers in Control aimed to help teachers to understand the forces that shaped their personal and professional development and their relationships with children at the time. It identifies the pressures that teachers faced, from both the school and the educational system as a whole, and then examines the internal, psychological influences that lead people into teaching and direct their future careers. The authors argue that an understanding of these influences can give teachers more control of decisions that affect their practice in the classroom and will still be very relevant today.
