Teacher Activism in the 1990’s
by Susan Robertson and Harry Smaller
Teacher Activism in the 1990s offers case studies of teachers' resistance to government cutbacks and private sector incursion into public education during the 1980s and '90s.
Between the mid-1980s and mid-1990s global economic restructuring caused social disruption in many advanced industrial economies. Governments at all levels slashed support for education, social services, health care and the arts.
Education was particularly hard hit by this "downsizing," and by private sector incursions into the public sphere. The contributors to this volume--educators and activists--described their struggle against this tide, their fight for equity and social justice in the public schools of Canada, Australia and France.
