This book questions what 'educating the whole child' means in the context of our current neoliberal education system. In analysing the impact of how education policy is enacted and understood, it examines how this 'neoliberalisation' has shaped the personal and ethical relations of education. The book is unique in raising questions about the way…

Lleras-Muney, Adriana – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2022
Education and income are strong predictors of health and longevity. In the last 20 years many efforts have been made to understand if these relationships are causal and what the possible role of policy should be as a result. The evidence from various studies is ambiguous: the effects of education and income policies on health are heterogeneous and…

Sampson, Carrie; Garcia, David R.; Hom, Matthew O.; Bertrand, Melanie – Peabody Journal of Education, 2022
Despite receiving little academic attention, open enrollment has the greatest potential among school choice policies to transform the governance of local school districts because all student transfers occur within the public school system, meaning that families and governance structures in two (or more) school districts are impacted by…

Although most international organisations are, in principle, multilingual, the ten-member Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) has adopted a radical approach by operating monolingually, ostensibly for convenience and pragmatism. In order to provide an evaluation of the ASEAN policy context, this paper compares and contrasts ASEAN to two…

Wilinski, Bethany – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2021
Increased investment in publicly-funded pre-kindergarten (pre-K) in the USA has come with a concomitant focus on teacher professionalization.

Meier, Stefan; Raab, Andreas; Höger, Brigitta; Diketmüller, Rosa – European Physical Education Review, 2022
Discussions on educational policy are shaped by current societal transformations associated with diversity. At the same time, the most recent reform of the Austrian National Curriculum for Physical Education (NCPE) was driven by the desire to stipulate standardised learning outcomes. Building upon Bernstein's framework, this paper explores to what…
