Neem, Johann N. – Democracy & Education, 2018
The Common Core does not advance democratic education. Far from it, the opening section of the language standards argues that the goal of public K-12 education is "college and career readiness." Only at the end of their introductory section do the Common Core's authors suggest that K-12 education has any goals beyond the economic:…

Ravenhall, Mark – Adults Learning, 2011
During the affluent noughties it was sometimes said of government that it had "more visions than Mystic Meg and more pilots than British Airways".

Wegerif, Rupert – Language and Education, 2005
The development of reason has long been an important aim for education. This is possibly reflected in the emphasis on the importance of explicit verbal reasoning in definitions of "Exploratory Talk", a concept that has had some influence on classroom teaching.
