Gibson, James L. – Social Indicators Research, 2007

Wingo, Ajume – Theory and Research in Education, 2007
The practical power of appeals to patriotism implies that patriotism in one form or another is here to stay. As such, arguments for the repudiation of patriotism cannot avoid seeming a bit utopian or ethereal. Practically speaking, we cannot repudiate patriotism and still have effective functioning states. To that end, political philosophers…

Garrison, Jim – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2005
My paper concentrates on Peirce's late essay, "Issues of Pragmaticism," which identifies "critical common-sensism" and Scotistic realism as the two primary products of pragmaticism. I argue that the doctrines of Peirce's critical common-sensism provide a host of commendable curricular objectives for democratic "Bildung". The second half of my…

Kushner, Saville – American Journal of Evaluation, 2005
What is the relationship between theory and design in evaluation pretending to be "democratic?" When do we feel able to relinquish elements of intellectual control over evaluation? If not in qualitative versus quantitative tendencies, where lie key value divisions in evaluation? To elicit the views of two leading United Kingdom-based…

Kolsto, Stein Dankert – Science & Education, 2008
Scholars have argued that the history of science might facilitate an understanding of processes of science. Focusing on science education for citizenship and active involvement in debates on socioscientific issues, one might argue that today's post-academic science differs from academic science in the past, making the history of academic science…

Robbins, Christopher G. – Policy Futures in Education, 2008
The author explores the cultural politics of neoliberal globalization, its deformations of critical facets of public culture as it has returned home, and he explores the politics of emergency.

Kahne, Joseph; Middaugh, Ellen – Social Education, 2008
In this article, the authors review the state of civic education in schools. They point out that students typically "take only one semester-long course on American government"--unlike the situation in the 1960s, when it was common "for students to take multiple courses in civics covering not only the structure of American government, but also the…

McGuire, Margit; Waldman, John – Phi Delta Kappan, 2008
A paramount duty of education is to prepare young people for their role as citizens in a democratic society. Voting is one of the important responsibilities of a citizen but statistics indicate that young people often don't vote and don't believe they have a stake in the outcome of the presidential election. Storypath is a teaching strategy that…

Wells, Ryan – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2008
Democratisation is an important component of current globalisation trends, and education is commonly thought to lead to greater democratisation. Thus, education holds a prestigious place in political development discourses. Are policies that promote this belief grounded in research-based evidence, or simply the propagation of institutionalized…

Haigh, Martin – Compare: A Journal of Comparative Education, 2008
The internationalisation of higher education aims to produce "citizens that feel at home in the world" but the process is driven by both economic and educational motivations.

Shields, Carolyn M.; Mohan, Erica J. – Teacher Development, 2008
Despite decades of reform and school improvement initiatives, large numbers of students are still underachieving, failing, or being pushed out of school. Clearly, a distinctly new approach is needed--one that takes into account the global diaspora and increasing school demographic diversity. Unless educators begin to take account of differences in…

Haas, Claus – London Review of Education, 2008
In 2007 the concept of citizenship was officially incorporated into teacher education in Denmark, as part of a compulsory subject called "Christianity studies, life enlightenment, and citizenship". Thus, at least to some extent, the notion of citizenship is expected to find its way into the educational and political vocabulary of future…
