Policy Problematization
Webb, P. Taylor
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v27 n3 p364-376 2014
This article places Michel Foucault's concept of "problematization" in relation to educational policy research. My goal is to examine a key assumption of policy related to "solving problems" through such technologies. I discuss the potential problematization has to alter conceptions of policy research; and, through this discussion, I provide a set of alternative pragmatics with which to conduct research for, and on, education policy.
