The Role of Policy in Philosophy of Education: An Argument and an Illustration
White, John
Journal of Philosophy of Education, v46 n4 p503-515 Nov 2012
The article consists of a general section looking at changes since the 1960s in the links between philosophy of education and policy-making, followed by a specific section engaging in topical policy critique. The historical argument claims that policy involvement was far more widespread in our subject before the mid-1980s than it has been since then, and discusses various reasons for this change. The second section is a close examination of the Expert Panel's December 2011 recommendations on the future of the English National Curriculum. Embedded in this is a critique of Michael Young's influential notion of "powerful knowledge". (Contains 2 notes.)
