Normal life in not so normal times
Zounek, J., Šimáně, M., & Knotová, D. (2017). Normal life in not so normal times. Primary schools and their teachers (not only) during the so-called normalization period. Praha: Wolters Kluwer.
The volume is one of the main outcomes of a research project called “Everyday life of a primary school in the Normalization period as viewed by teachers. Using oral history in studying contemporary history of formal education”, supported by the Czech Science Foundation (project no. GA14-05926S).
The objective of the project was to explore and describe everyday life of basic schools during the so-called normalization (1969-1989). The authors based research on the use of oral history in order to obtain new and unique knowledge of the everyday life of schools as well as teachers´ life and work. They grounded results in a broader context of development and transformations of the then society and the socialist education system in former Czechoslovakia.
