The purpose of the study was to give sixteen teachers the space to share their experiences of, and responses to, the recent political and economic changes in Greece and the new challenges that have stemmed from these. My study was based on an epistemology and standpoint of hope, over, and against, the dire and self-defeating discourse of despair which dominates the current context of Greek education and public life. It is not a final account but rather a set of starting points and openings, a set of partial views and temporary possibilities for thought and action. In this feature article, I present a very brief summary of teachers’ concerns, anxieties, commitments, and some traces, glimpses, and possibilities of hope that were found in the data.
