This book connects the dilemmas educators experience in daily practice with key theories, research and policy about democracy, ethics, and equity in education. Illustrated through vignettes from practicing teachers, as well as suggested questions and supplementary readings for each chapter, the authors recognise and explore the complex nature of the insoluble problems that face practicing teachers in their everyday lives and how they can be understood in order to address them in a more elaborate manner. Divided into eight concise chapters, this book provides a much-needed comprehensive exploration of issues within the education discourse, as seen from a global perspective, such as: Teachers' understanding of their profession Political demands and the complexities of practice Schools' democratic values Performance and accountability Minority needs and majority rule Countering radicalisation, terrorism, and misinformation Democracy and Teacher Education is a fantastic resource for students in teacher education programmes, as well as teacher educators, who are looking to develop a critical understanding of the choices made within the education field in a more thoughtful and sensitive manner. Supplementary readings are available as an eResource at www.routledge.com/9781138593251
