Harris, Richard; Ormond, Barbara – Educational Review, 2019

Harris, Kevin – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2013
This paper outlines aspects and dimensions of my "relationship" with Richard Peters from 1966 onward. The underlying suggestion is that, while Peters' contribution to philosophy of education was undeniably of major proportions, both that contribution and his legacy are institutional rather than substantive. (Contains 15 notes.)

Harris, Richard – FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, 2015

Whereas history is seen by some as crucial in developing a sense of identity and fostering social cohesion, it is however, often based around narrowly nationalistic views of the past, and yet little is known about how students relate to the past they are taught. Thus, this paper focuses on the history curriculum and the ways in which students aged…

Harrison, Neil; Davies, Sara; Harris, Richard; Waller, Richard – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2018
For the last 10 years, universities in England have been expected to offer financial support to low-income students alongside that provided by government.
