What makes a great teacher?
David Cameron's proclamation that the Tories will be "brazenly elitist" about the calibre of candidates entering the teaching profession betrays the fact that he doesn't know anything about teaching. As a teacher in various comprehensives for the past 20 years, I have seen many good teachers, and some, it's true, fit the stereotype that Cameron wants to impose: graduates with good degrees from so-called "good universities".
Hannah Arendt and Jean Baudrillard: Pedagogy in the consumer society

Beyond Liberation: An Agenda for Educational Justice by Charles L. Glenn
