Educators, professionalism and politicsoffers ways of understanding how and with what consequences national systems of education and the work of education professionals are being reregulated in the context of contemporary global transitions. National education systems are being transformed into more complex education spaces within nation-states, as well as creating transnational organizations, relations and practices that impinge on the work of education and learning globally, nationally and locally. It approaches this agenda by focusing firmly on the way that educators themselves encounter and renegotiate ideas and practices that travel globally as they seek to enact their established professional projects. This framing recognises that educators’ professional projects are historically anchored in national institutional trajectories, but that these are currently disturbed as globally mobile ideas and practices "touch down" within national systems of education.The theme of this volume, the effect on national systems of education in global transition, brings together a new approach to perspectives on curriculum today and a new collection of insights into the changes from different parts of the world which discuss: What re-regulatory trajectories are evident in national education spaces and how do they impact on educators?processes of renegotiation used by educators as they mediate between globally mobile ideas, practices and national institutional trajectories. What are the implications of these mediations and renegotiations for education professionals and their professional projects?This volume will be of great interest to Education researchers, graduate students, teacher educators and education policy-makers.
