Various forms of performance management systems, such as rankings, accreditations, quality audits, and performance indicators, are increasingly used to manage the educational sector of today. The overall purpose of the current project is to further our understanding of how the teaching profession—at different levels of the educational sector—is reconstructed against the background of such a performativity turn.
