The goal of the project proposed is support to research by Ph.D. students in broadly conceived educational sciences, focused on the important topic of school and some other closely related issues. The project focuses on the macro- as well as micro-level of school operation, namely school management and decision-making, selected school-life rituals, the culture of key processes in school, the developmental potential regarding students´ ability to control their learning, pupils´ participation in self-governance, and the relation between school work and aesthetic education. The project also focuses on teachers: on their career development through school curricula planning, processes of achieving high standards of pedagogical work, and, last but not least, the issue of teachers´ identity. By combining approaches originating in basic and applied disciplines in educational studies with approaches used in borderline disciplines, the broad educational research undertaken within the project is expected to provide the discourse on school with new perspectives. The participants are expected to publish both individually and in teams and a wide co-operation with a number of academic and research institutions is envisioned as a part of the Ph.D. students´ mobility and further career growth.
