Rappleye, Jeremy; Komatsu, Hikaru – Oxford Review of Education, 2018

This paper seeks to contribute to recent comparative discussions about the shift of traditional referential points as a result of new global governance by the OECD through PISA.

Tatto, Maria Teresa – Oxford Review of Education, 2015
The stated goal of current education reform is the redesign of education systems in pursuit of quality.

O'Neill, Onora – Oxford Review of Education, 2013
Systems of accountability are "second order" ways of using evidence of the standard to which "first order" tasks are carried out for a great variety of purposes. However, more accountability is not always better, and processes of holding to account can impose high costs without securing substantial benefits. At their worst,…

Macleod, Gale; MacAllister, James; Pirrie, Anne – Oxford Review of Education, 2012
In this paper we problematise the notion of authority as it appears in discourse relating to school discipline. The account of authority that dominates is narrow and restricted, and the term is sometimes used as a synonym for control. This prohibits full consideration of the range of relationships in which authority manifests itself. We draw on…

In both schools and homes, information and communication technologies (ICT) are widely seen as enhancing learning, this hope fuelling their rapid diffusion and adoption throughout developed societies.

Polesel, John; Keating, Jack – Oxford Review of Education, 2011
Located differentially (and to its detriment) within a status hierarchy of knowledge, vocational education has been called upon to satisfy an increasing range of political and social needs, including meeting the needs of industry and government and catering for increasing pupil diversity. Faced with stubbornly immobile rates of school completion…

Jenkins, Stephen P.; Micklewright, John; Schnepf, Sylke V. – Oxford Review of Education, 2008
New evidence is provided about the degree of social segregation in England's secondary schools, employing a cross-national perspective. Analysis is based on data for 27 industrialised countries from the 2000 and 2003 rounds of the Programme of International Student Assessment (PISA). We allow for sampling variation in the estimates. England is…
