Berryman, Mere; Ford, Therese; Nevin, Ann; SooHoo, Suzanne – International Journal of Special Education, 2015
As our education systems become more culturally, ethnically and linguistically diverse, rather than benefiting and learning from each other, we still expect all students to be represented within the same curriculum, pedagogy and testing regimen or we form separate enclaves resulting in marginalizaton.

Gledhill, Kris – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
One question arising in the context of universities as corporate entities is the reason why being an 'entity' is important.

Estola, Eila; Farquhar, Sandy; Puroila, Anna-Maija – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2014
Whereas research on children's well-being in education has largely focused on adult perspectives rather than on children's understandings, recent scholarship argues for a stronger focus on children's experience and perceptions of their own well-being. Adopting a narrative approach, this article puts children's stories centre stage as we explore a…

Stuart, Margaret – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
New Zealand has received world-wide accolades for its Early Childhood Education (ECE) curriculum, Te Whariki. This paper explores the tension between economic imperialism, and a curriculum acknowledged as visionary. The foundational ideas of Te Whariki emanate from sociocultural and anti-racist pedagogies. However, its implementation is hampered…

Hill, Deb J.; Lee, Greg – Education Research and Perspectives, 2005
In this paper, it is argued that it is the centrality of the liberatory function of education--its "onto-formative" capacity--that has been most severely compromised through the contemporary recasting of "education" as both a marketable commodity (externalized knowledge) and a particular form of institutional activity…

Loomis, Steven R.; Rodriguez, Jacob P.; Honeycutt, Jared; Arellano, Manuel – London Review of Education, 2006
Many arguments in favour of school voucher programs are based upon libertarian free agency principles. Viewed at the organizational level, allowing persons to exercise choice in education would seem to offer incentives for all educational organizations within that framework to improve overall product quality and thus more effectively obtain the…

Place-based education seeks to connect learners to local environments through a variety of strategies that increase environmental awareness and connectedness to particular parts of the world.
