Abstract

From research spanning three projects, Woods and colleagues established a typology of teacher reactions to the intensification of primary teachers' work: enhanced teachers, compliant teachers, non-compliant teachers and diminished teachers (Woods et al., 1997). The 'compliant teacher' category was the largest: 29 teachers from a sample of 64. This chapter investigates, in more detail, the effects of audit accountability on the professional identity of one of those teachers.
