10 SES 14 A, Building A Research Agenda For Teacher Education Futures

Evident throughout the research is the question of access to professional discourse, predicted by Giroux in 1986 as an outcome - and indeed a desired product - of the dominance of legitimised ('profane') knowledge above professional ('sacred') knowledge. I have sought to use practitioner research as a vehicle for developing professional ('sacred') discourse (see for example the work of Kincheloe (2001) and thereby reclaiming the agenda of professional knowledge.
