Department od Education, NTNU
This paper explores the concept of “teacher empowerment” and strategies for its actualization. In the era of educational innovation, teacher empowerment is deemed as a key element of successful school reform, teacher education, school organization, and educational leadership. We assess the possibilities and potential constraints for empowering teachers in Taiwan. Special attention is given to the possibility of transforming current teachers’ associations into empowering ones in order to promote educational innovation and the professional status of teachers. We also discuss areas to be cautious of when exercising the power of teachers as well as the necessary strategies and steps to be taken before the successful realization of teacher empowerment. Abusing teachers’ power will harm rather than benefit educational improvements and teachers’ professional status.
