Jacklin, Heather – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2018
National education policies reference a representation of an imagined subject of schooling derived from a broader social imaginary that underpins the projects of the state, in a process which I refer to here as 'the logic of policy'. I offer an account of how this representation is derived and propose three conceptual elaborations of this view. I…

Shay, Suellen – Higher Education: The International Journal of Higher Education Research, 2016
The growing demands on higher education have placed an unprecedented external pull on universities.

Education is often seen as the key agency in international development and poverty reduction. Frequently the emphasis is on the economic and social role of education in development.

Woodrooffe, Dhruneanne D. – Peabody Journal of Education, 2011
Under the apartheid state, higher education was structured to maintain and reproduce the subordinate social and economic position of non-Whites.
