Performativity in UK Education: Ethnographic cases of its effects, agency and reconstructions – Edited by Bob Jeffrey and Geoff Troman 2012



This collection explores policy at the macro level, in the context of policy text production, and at the meso and micro levels in the context of practice. Its aim, therefore, is to combine policy analysis with ethnographic explorations of a range of educational sites in order to understand the impact of performative policies on the work of the headteachers, teachers, lecturers and pupils/students. Our focus is on how individual actors make sense of, analyse, interpret and use agency to ameliorate or reconstruct performative situations.
