Being a Teacher: Reading 10. Study of Effective Schools - Summary of Major Findings

Reading 10 is a brief extract from a report in which researchers Christie and Potterton describe the key factors that they found in those South African schools that demonstrated resilience in the face of difficulties. This excerpt focuses on only one of these factors: a shared sense of responsibility on the part of the teachers on the staff – a moral responsibility that goes beyond accountability and prevents teachers from seeing themselves as victims, or as helpless (both of these selfimages are hostile to the idea of teachers as professionals).
