dc.description.abstract The thrust of this research project was to examine how educational reform in Alberta, under the Klein regime, has affected teacher workloads and morale. The first section of this project establishes a political context and examines how the Klein government's neoconservative ideology has permeated educational discourse, policy and reform. The second section is the interview portion of the study and is designed to help the reader gain a better understanding of current teacher working conditions in the province of Alberta. The inquiry adopted a qualitative approach and the data was collected through semistructured interviews. The research will show that educational reform in Alberta is more about balancing budgets and eliminating deficits, in view of competing in the global marketplace, rather than improving the quality of education for students. The research will also attempt to show that the alleged crisis in public education was artificially created to orchestrate a massive and unprecedented restructuring of public education in Alberta. en
