Politics and Policy in Teacher Education

This RDG is focused on the relationship of politics and policy in a local and global context. What are the issues we need to investigate at the global, national, regional and local in teacher education? How has policy in teacher education been influenced by politics? Thoughtful research- based reflections on these complex issues of change in policy and politics in teaching are encouraged.
