This book offers an original and challenging theoretical and empirical approach to mapping the changing nature of teachers' work historically and in the contemporary period. It is an attempt to understand how and in what ways teachers' work has changed following the demise of the post-war settlement and the imminent collapse of teachers' project of professionalism secured through solidaristic strategies such as unionism. Dr. Robertson argues that in order to understand these issues, a more rigorous set of conceptual tools around social class, occupational power and worker control is needed. The first two sections of the book set out to address that problem. The final section elaborates on the changing contexts and conditions for contemporary teachers more generally, and argues that structural and ideological changes within educational provision have led to differing capacities in the realization of class assets.

Review:

""Susan Robertson gives us a formidable basis for understanding teachers' place in society... Clearly Written, thoroughly researched, and willing to confront hard issues, this book will be a great asset for all concerned to understand teachers, teachers' work, and current developments in education..""
-R.W. Connell, Professor of Education, The University of Sydney
"A Class Act reaffirms Susan Robertson's place as one of the most perceptive researchers on the transformations education is experiencing today. Conceptually, historically, and empirically nuanced, this book is certain to provide a crucial foundation for critical understanding. It is essential reading for those who want to more fully understand what is happening to schools and teachers..""
-Michael W. Apple, John Bascom Professor of Education, University of Wisconsin, Madison
