A transforming society undergoes changes on many levels. The main two of these are changes in the structures and culture of society. But how do these large changes affect the lives of individuals and small communities? This book, Teachers on the Waves of Transformation, attempts to aid in the understanding of theses questions by means of exploratory research at two schools in a small town in central Bohemia. The scholar followed the fates of two generations of teachers at both schools. In interviews with the teachers, management and also the parents, she focuses on the areas of relationships, values, shared stories and even symbolic and ritual worlds, the culture of the schools.
