Fisher, Roy – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The evacuation of civilians during Second World War Britain included the relocation not only of school children and teachers but of whole schools and, in some instances, of teacher training colleges. This paper examines the evacuation of Avery Hill College, a leading teacher training college, from London to Huddersfield between 1941 and 1946.…

The author uses character to examine a group of mid-level academics' accounts of work and career in a British research-intensive university.

del Pozo Andrés, María del Mar; Braster, Sjaak – History of Education, 2018
The Dalton Plan is well known in educational historiography. But there are also unanswered questions such as: how is it possible that a pedagogical experiment begun in the United States in February 1920 had, by the month of March, already come to be known first hand by a visiting English educator? The objective in this article is to find an…

Whitehead, Kay – Paedagogica Historica: International Journal of the History of Education, 2018
This article focuses on the work of three British Women Education Officers (WEOs) in Nigeria as the colony was preparing for independence. Well-qualified and progressive women teachers, Kathleen Player, Evelyn Clark (née Hyde), and Mary Hargrave (née Robinson), were appointed as WEOs in 1945, 1949, and 1950 respectively. I argue that the three…

Platt, Nicky – London Review of Education, 2018
This article draws on experience both within commercial textbook publishing and on textbook-development projects at the UCL Institute of Education to interrogate the current dynamics of 'neoliberal' edu-business (after Ball, 2012). The author discusses some damaging limitations inherent in publishing coursebooks predicated on what Young and Muller…

de Zwart, Mary Leah – Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, 2017
There is considerable concern today about sustaining home economics/family and consumer sciences studies (HE/FCS) in a political and economic climate where support for programs is diminishing. This paper proposes that HE/FCS educators and scholars look to the past in seeking directions for the future. In particular, it draws from the work of Alice…

Panjwani, Farid – Oxford Review of Education, 2017
It is widely accepted in academia and state policies that recent years have seen an increasing stress on publicly enacted Muslim identity in Britain and in many other parts of the world. Less recognised is the fact that many among those who call themselves Muslims do not share religion as a predominant identity-attribute for themselves. Such…

White, John – Theory and Research in Education, 2015
This is a reply to six "Theory and Research in Education" commentators on views I expressed in a 2013 "Theory and Research in Education" piece about priorities in philosophy of education today. The first section is about a concession to my critics; the second, about various misconceptions in their views. The third section…

Steedman, Carolyn – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2015
The sources and motives for children writing are discussed in the context of 1950s Britain. The images and objects that furnish the story-making imagination are related to Charles Lamb's account of looking at old china (teacups and plates) as a child in the 1790s. A focus of this essay is the little-discussed topic of a writer's failure to write…

Kravtsov, Sergei – Russian Education & Society, 2015
The project of modernization of regional education systems is now in its second year, but by no means all schools in Russia currently meet modern requirements. The division between strong and weak schools is still preserved. Quality control is frequently regarded as a formality and the effectiveness of how a specific educational institution is run…

Li, Aisi – Frontiers of Education in China, 2014
The foundation of Shanxi University is a prime example of the collaborative efforts in higher education between the Chinese and British in late Qing China (1842-1912). Both sides made compromises, with the Chinese adapting their ideas of educational sovereignty, and the British agreeing to work under the supervision of the local government. Such a…

Brookfield, Stephen – Adult Learning, 2014
Anti-racist pedagogy typically focuses on helping learners identify and counter racist ideas and actions they detect in themselves and others. Sympathetically and skillfully, the leader of this activity is charged with helping people detect subtle racism as evident in racial micro-aggressions and aversive racism. This pedagogic process is crucial…

van der Ploeg, Piet – History of Education, 2014
In the Netherlands there are 400 Dalton schools, while Dalton education has all but disappeared elsewhere, including in its country of origin: the USA. Following a brief period in the 1920s in which it enjoyed strong international interest, it disappeared from the scene. How can it be that the Dalton Plan still exists only in the Netherlands? This…
