Many approaches to explaining educational inequalities relate explicitly and implicitly to benefits of education, and rational choice theories in particular consider monetary benefits.

Galea, Simone – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
This paper argues for the active participation of women in philosophy of education and the importance of their sexually differentiated positions in pluralising knowledge.

Jackson, Liz – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
Conference environments enable diverse roles for academics. However, conferences are hardly entered into by participants as equals.

Öchsner, Marco; Murray, Georgina – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019

Analytical frameworks such as postfeminism and intersectionality have given equal weight to recognition-based struggles, such as those based on sexual, racial, class-based, gender-related identities. We follow…
