Rees, Nina – American Enterprise Institute, 2020
There are three reasons conservatives should support making access to a high-quality public education a constitutionally protected civil right. First, a constitutional right to a high-quality public education should not confer a right to sue for individual services. Second, elected governors and legislators, not judges, would continue to make…

The purpose of this article is to respond to the perspectives of Agran and colleagues concerning barriers to general education placement for students with significant support needs from an "on the ground" lens of participation in mediations and due process hearings, as well as conversations with parental inclusion advocates throughout…

Higher education is a critical tool for social mobility, but today, students and their families face significant challenges. It is against this backdrop that the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) convened the Task Force on Higher Education Financing and Student Outcomes.

Bullying is increasingly considered to be an important moral, political, and social issue within modern society. Academic research on this issue has mostly been examined through a psychological lens, often using questionnaire data to examine and explain the prevalence of different types of bullying. In this position statement, we apply a…

Shen, Qi; Gao, Xuesong – Language Policy, 2019
In this opening commentary, we draw on Ruiz's (NABE J 8:15-34, 1984) metaphorical representations of language to outline the ideological and implementational spaces for language policy making in Greater China. In particular, we highlight how the 'resource' orientation allows different stakeholders to negotiate the development of language policies…

Ball, Stephen J. – Peabody Journal of Education, 2017
This paper builds on previous research (Ball, 2012, Ball & Junemann, 2012) to explore some aspects of the embodiment of policy. The author draws on Larner and Laurie's (2010) work on technocratic expertise and how, as she puts it, "privatisation ideas and practices are transferred in embodied forms," and in particular her argument…

Grek, Sotiria – Critical Studies in Education, 2017
This paper suggests that the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) education policy work of the last 20 years has achieved a paradigmatic shift in the thinking and framing of education; however, this process was not exclusively based and dependent upon the cold rationality of numbers. Crucially, as the article will show, it…

Bengtsson, Stefan Lars – Journal of Environmental Education, 2016
The different responses, interpretations, and consequent critiques of Stefan Lars Bengtsson's "Hegemony and the Politics of Policy Making for Education for Sustainable Development" highlight how the various critical outlooks are framed by, seemingly, incommensurable positions, or figures of reasoning, that inform their thinking.…

Lotz-Sisitka, Heila – Journal of Environmental Education, 2016
In this response article, I draw on critical realist perspectives to engage with the argument put forward in Bengtsson's study, which sees agency as an ontological necessity for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) policy engagement. Bengtsson supports a notion of the logic of contingent action over the logic of power as dominance,…

Wrigley, Terry – Improving Schools, 2015
This essay connects a number of recent books relating, in different ways, to the contentious issue of how teaching might be better guided by research evidence. In order to shed light on this problematic area, Terry Wrigley begins by pointing out that raising awkward questions about terms such as "evidence- based teaching" is not the same…

Hess, Frederick M.; Fennell, Maddie – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2015
Two perspectives on teaching as a profession offer an interesting contrast. One side focuses on teachers from a political perspective, while the other envisions transforming teaching into a true profession.

Rodriguez, Alberto J. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2015
In this paper, I offer a critique of "A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas" (NRC, 2012) and of the "Next Generation Science Standards" (Achieve, 2013). While the new version of the science education standards and the arguments put forward to support them are an improvement…

Henry, Gary T. – American Journal of Evaluation, 2015
In this commentary, Gary Henry explains that the Danes have got it right, again. Not only is their voter turnout high to begin with, but they are evaluating ways to increase voter turnout with "random variation" to accurately assess the effects of the innovations. In the Danish 2009 municipal elections, 65.8% turned out to vote, which…
