    Teachers as Health Workers: A Critical Understanding of the Health-Education Interface (Critical Studies in Health and Education) 1st Edition

    Schooling has long been held responsible for the health and wellbeing of children. However, against an international background of rising concern about students’ performance and wellbeing, schools and teachers have faced escalating expectations of their health-related work. While various stakeholders have ideas about what teachers’ health work entails, we know little about teachers’ contributions, engagement and personal satisfaction with this work. As teachers’ work represents a significant national investment, insight into the cost-benefit of teachers’ health work is vital to establishing the broader economic contribution of schools to society.


    Teachers as Health Workers offers a critical perspective on these matters, documenting the day-to-day work of Australian teachers as they grapple with the challenges, and joys, of balancing education and health-related responsibilities. Whilst shifts in policy, economics and globalisation influence localised enactment of teachers’ health work, the economic modelling, theorising and methodological innovations of this research address enduring themes and challenges. Consequently, this book’s critical perspective reveals policy-practice gaps in government strategies seeking to create a healthy and productive population.


    The book will inform education, health and industrial policies and provide direction for teachers’ initial or ongoing preparation as health workers.
