The PerformingMoreThis specifically commissioned collection of perspectives offers an analysis of the new organization of the teaching profession as it is reconstructed around the notion of performance and the implications of a performance culture. The Performing School examines the roots, directions and implications of the new structure by drawing together insights from policy, research and practice at this time of rapid change and debate. The volume addresses three interconnected issues of modernization and education: what is the background to and significance of performance management in modernizing schools and teachers at the present time?- what are the likely future effects of a performance culture on teaching, learning and schooling?- and what will it take to ensure that performance management improves pedagogy and professionality beyond the narrow confines of perfomativity, managerialism and market reform in education?
