A very quick update: I submitted my thesis last week! I’ll still need to go through the viva (i.e. oral defense) and to complete any corrections recommended during the viva before this PhD is wrapped up, but I’m so grateful to be at this point.
Also, later this week I’ll be starting a job at the Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE) Programme. I’m very excited.
On another note, here’s my favourite typo among the many that emerged during the thesis revision process:
Next, I discuss how and why teacher accountability is pivotal to teacher accountability.
