Apple, Michael W. – Educational Policy, 2014
Over the years that I have been writing the Reviewing Policy section of this journal, I have paid particular attention to critical conceptual and empirical work that either overtly supports or directly challenges the taken-for-granted assumptions that tend to guide dominant policies in education. These policies may deal with larger issues…

King, Seth; Davidson, Kimberly; Chitiyo, Argnue; Apple, Derrick – Remedial and Special Education, 2020
Literature reviews allow education professionals to identify effective interventions and assess trends in research and practice.

This study evaluated the description of article search procedures and…

Lim, Leonel; Apple, Michael W. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2015
While much of the critical scholarship around elite schooling has focused on the students who attend elite institutions, their social class locations, privileged habituses and cultural capital, this paper foregrounds curricular form itself as a central mechanism in the (re)production of elites. Using Basil Bernstein's conceptual framework of…

Apple, Michael W. – London Review of Education, 2013
Stephen Ball's work has deservedly received a good deal of attention. In this article, I detail a number of tasks in which the critical sociologist of education--as a "public intellectual"--should engage. I then place Ball's work within these tasks and evaluate his contributions to them. In the process, I show that one of the…

Apple, Michael W. – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2013
I want to use this essay -- basically a commentary -- as a context for some political reflections on what is happening to the governance and the labour processes at universities internationally. In the process, in addition to my critical reflections on the neoliberal impulses affecting universities, I want to do two other things. First, I shall…

Apple, Michael W. – Review of Education, 2013
Most nations--and nations to be--have a history of people asking critical questions about schooling and about the politics of knowledge in which it participates. Is it simply reproducing the ideological goals and cultural forms and content of dominant groups? Could schooling be used to raise serious issues about existing societies? Could it go…

Smathers, Carol A.; Graffagnino, Cheryl – Journal of Child Nutrition & Management, 2020
Purpose/Objectives: Food discarded in school meal programs diminishes opportunities to nourish students and intensifies waste management burdens.

Yatsko, Sarah; Opalka, Alice; Sutter, Jessica; Weeldreyer, Laura; Stewart, David – Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2016
Many districts are expanding and diversifying the school options available to parents--a trend that shows no signs of reversing. While all public schools are required to test and publically report results, it remains nearly impossible for families and education and civic leaders to make school-to-school comparisons, especially across district-run…

Ferrare, Joseph J.; Apple, Michael W. – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2015
Bourdieu's version of field theory has had an impressive impact on the ways that sociologists of education conceptualize educational practices. These accounts tend to focus on the varying levels of ontological complicity established between students' cultural dispositions and educational institutions. In this paper, the wisdom of these…
