Hardy, Alison – Technology and Engineering Teacher, 2019
Design and technology (D&T) is taught in most primary (5-11 year old children) and secondary schools (11-16 year olds) in England. Seen by some as a relatively new subject (White, 2011), some of its origins lie in craft tradition and domestic skills. This is partly reflected in classroom activities where children design and make, usually in…

Perry, Thomas – Research Papers in Education, 2019
A compositional effect is when pupil attainment is associated with the characteristics of their peers, over and above their own individual characteristics.

We need to keep experimenting with writing to meet the challenges of Deleuze and Guattari's flattened ontology in the humanities. The paper reports on a small, experimental research project at a university in the north-west of England. The findings are written in an experimental mode, inspired by the Deleuze and Guattarian concept, 'assemblage'.…

Mansfeld, Iain – Higher Education Policy Institute, 2019
Most previous research on grammar schools has focused narrowly on eligibility for Free School Meals as a measure of disadvantage. But with 45% of pupils at grammar schools coming from families with below median incomes, a broader consideration of the impact of grammar schools on social mobility is necessary. The evidence suggests that grammar…

Fairchild, Nikki – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2019
Engaging with posthuman theorising, this article puts to work a number of concepts to produce generative reimaginings of early years leadership.

In societies of control, power operates through neo-liberal corporate worlds via a…
