Kotýnková, Štěpánka ; Mouralová, Magdalena (advisor) ; Pýchová, Silvie (referee)
This bachelor thesis deals with the issue of so-called drop-out of teachers from schools or the early departure of teachers from their profession. It focuses specifically on novice teachers, which means teachers in the early years of their careers. This is a very current issue, because the lack of quality teachers is a problem not only in the Czech Republic but also abroad. The thesis focuses on former elementary and secondary school teachers in the Czech Republic. The primary goal of the thesis is to identify and understand the reasons for the drop-out of novice teachers. In addition, the thesis also deals with the course of the teacher's education and practice and the possibilities of preventing the early departure of novice teachers. The first part of the thesis contains the theoretical and factual basis of the studied problem and the results of previous studies of the topic are also presented here. The second part of the thesis is formed by the analysis of eight half-structured interviews with former teachers. Their narratives are briefly introduced here. The work concludes that the drop-out of novice teachers can be caused by many different factors that are combined and accumulate over time. Drop-out is not usually caused by only one of them. The decision to leave their profession is a...

Cabalková, Anna ; Veselý, Arnošt (advisor) ; Pýchová, Silvie (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the situation of emerging private elementary schools in the Czech Republic. As this is a new phenomenon, only recognised in the past few years, there is little detailed evidence that would provide the necessary information about these schools; such as what kind of schools are registered and why they were created. This paper aim is to identify and describe the main types of these schools and understand their functions. The first part is to comprehend the shift in education and stress out the influence and role of new actors. This is achieved through providing the different perspectives on education and through description of supply and demand for education. This new phenomenon is also supported by the Theory of Exit, Voice & Loyalty which explains behaviour of private school's initiators and founders. The thesis also examines different authors' and publications' views on alternative and traditional schooling, private, public and non-public schools and the difficulties in comparison across different educational systems. The practical part and its research offers systematic and objective evaluation of the new schools being established and how they work. It also presents possible reasons for the rise in the number of new schools and, what implications this phenomenon can...
