Description Resilient Teachers, Resilient Schools de Christopher Day:

Whilst much has been written over the years about teacher stress and burnout, there is very little research which reports on the resilient quality which is central for teachers to sustain their commitment and effectiveness in contexts of challenge and change. This book focuses upon the teachers who stay in teaching and continue to strive for the best in their careers, regardless of shifts in policy, professional and personal circumstances.

Using vivid accounts from teachers in a variety of primary and secondary schools, this book discusses the dynamic nature, forms and practices of resilience. Extensive research into teachers work and lives over the last decade has proved that resilience in teachers is more than just the ability to bounce back in extremely adverse circumstances. Instead, everyday resilience enables teachers to respond positively to the unavoidable uncertainties inherent in everyday professional lives, allowing them to sustain their commitment, wellbeing and effectiveness. Continuing moral purpose, pedagogical competence and organisational support are crucial conditions for teachers to retain their capacity to be resilient.

The resilient teachers described in this book draw upon reservoirs of hope, vocational strength and colleague and leadership support. Their experiences provide rich illustrations of scenarios and sites of struggle, and offer an abundant empirical basis for the book to examine the psychological, social and policy conditions which influence teachers sense of identity and professionalism. The research presented clearly shows policy makers, head teachers, and training and development organisations the importance of building and nurturing resilience in their efforts to improve quality and standards in schools.
