Strengthening Discipline in State Schools: Constructions of Discipline in a Public Policy Moment
Carden, Clarissa
Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, v39 n3 p448-460 2018
This article uses critical discourse analysis to interrogate government documents associated with the passing of the "Education (Strengthening Discipline in State Schools) Act 2013" in Queensland, Australia. It uses these documents to demonstrate the way in which the discourse of discipline has been constructed in order to legitimate the removal of legislative safeguards intended to curtail the disciplinary power of school officials.
