London: Falmer Press. ’ The issue of occupational identity has always worried teachers, as it is bound up with their standing with the public, with other professions and with the state and politicians. It is a question endlessly chewed over by academics who have come up with various accounts of what it is to be a teacher. All of these accounts contain some problems.

It is not so clear that one could easily detect the lack of knowledge of the teacher. Children who do not learn what an observer thinks that they should learn do not necessarily count against this. A teacher might plausibly say that their aims for education were the development of an integrated personality, not someone able to read and write; as, for example, Rousseau appears to have thought. A teacher might also say that one should not aim too high in teaching some children, as high expectations are not appropriate for some kinds of children (see comments in Alexander 1984; Thrupp 1999).
