In this, the 2014 general issue of Teachers and Curriculum, we are pleased to incorporate a wide range of contributions that demonstrate the breadth and complexity of teaching and curriculum work in education settings. The editorial board of this journal continues to be committed to working with contributors to present research, debates, and accounts of practice that are accessible to practitioners and have the potential to inform practice. We acknowledge that practitioners do not always feel that they have the requisite knowledge or ability to make a ‘legitimate’ contribution to our growing understandings of curriculum, pedagogy, assessment or policy. In many ways this could be viewed as a learned behaviour, in response to our own educational experiences that position ‘academic’ knowledge as held by ‘experts’, while positioning practitioner ways of knowing as of lesser consequence. Teachers and Curriculum is committed to addressing these binary ways of this thinking by providing a forum for both practitioner and academic contributions.
