Conservativism has gained significant influence on education-policy making and debates about education in many Anglophone countries.

Prominent developments in English PE and school sport (PESS) policy across the period of Conservative-led governments since 2010 have not been empirically or comprehensively researched.

This article offers a critical reflection on the function of education, health and care plans (EHCPs) in pathways to employment for disabled young people.

Shaw, Paula; Green, Pauline; Gration, Marlies; Rhodes, Christine; Sheffield, David; Stone, Julie – Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, 2020
Through this paper, we explore "unbundling," the separation of various aspects of education, resources, teaching and assessment (Ossiannilsson et al., 2015) and "rebundling," where these activities are "recombined into new configurations with little loss of functionality" (Ge et al., 2004, p. 1). We chart the…

Gazeley, Louise – Educational Review, 2019
Policy makers internationally are increasingly preoccupied with the need for education systems to be developed in ways that mitigate unfairness. What is more contestable is what might need to change.
