The role of social capital for teacher professional learning and student achievement: A systematic literature review

Highlights•This systematic review finds that teacher social capital has been associated with five categories of outcomes:-teacher professional development-implementation of change-teacher retention and job satisfaction-successful introduction of new teachers-improved student achievement•Results also point to the implicit outcome of teacher social capital on educational equity.•A synthesis of enablers and barriers to social capital identifies the pervasive role of organisational structures of schools for moderating the relationship between teacher social capital and these positive outcomes.AbstractThis systematic review synthesises research on social capital in relation to teachers and teacher professional learning between the years 2004–2019. The study was guided by the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) Statement and the Weight of Evidence framework for quality and relevance appraisal. After applying eligibility criteria, 66 empirical items were included in the final review. The review finds that social capital among teachers has been associated with five categories of outcomes: 1) teacher professional development, 2) the implementation of change, 3) the introduction of new and beginning teachers, 4) teacher retention and job satisfaction, and 5) improved student achievement. These have, in turn, been associated with the implicit outcome of promoting educational equity. A synthesis of enablers and barriers to building social capital among teachers identifies the pervasive role of organisational structures for moderating the relationship between social capital and these outcomes. Findings indicate that different organisational structures may foster different social capital dimensions, such as bonding, bridging, and linking. More research is needed on the relationship between these dimensions and schools' organisational structure to promote the desired outcomes of teacher social capital identified in this review.
