Lambert, Rachel – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2019
The academic field of Disability Studies (DS) offers theoretical tools to understand how social practices intersect with embodiment, long a critical issue in DS because disability is a category of human difference that is always already embodied. I review two theories that seek to resolve this dichotomy between the body and social worlds: complex…

Hextrum, Kirsten – Berkeley Review of Education, 2014
Today, women across race and class categories graduate high school and college at higher rates than men (U.S. Census Bureau, 2012). According to Marxist reproduction theories, schools maintain social hierarchies by academically rewarding the elite. Yet, despite educational gains, women remain materially and symbolically unequal, proving to be…

Eastman, Nicholas J.; Anderson, Morgan; Boyles, Deron – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2017
Simply put, charter schools have not lived up to their advocates' promise of equity. Using examples of tangible civil rights gains of the twentieth century (e.g. "Brown v. Board," "Lau v. Nichols") and extending feminist theories of invisible labor to include the labor of democracy, the authors argue that the charter movement…

Beard, Karen Stansberry – International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), 2012

Devine, Cathy – Sport, Education and Society, 2016
Universalist claims are often made about sport which is, as a consequence, increasingly written into national and international policy as an entitlement of citizenship or even human right. Further, in most countries physical education (PE) is a compulsory component of children's education, and sport is seen as central to this. Consequently, in the…

Devine, Cathy – Sport, Education and Society, 2018
The three British Sports Councils are instrumental in developing the policy landscape for sport and physical education (PE). They aspire to equality between the sexes in 'sport and physical recreation' (SPR), in keeping with their Royal Charters [Sport England. (1996/2009). "Royal Charter of English Sports Council (Sport England)."…

North, Connie E. – International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), 2007
Although theories on anti-oppressive education abound, few scholars have conducted empirical studies of anti-oppressive educational curricula to test the alignment of theories--constructed largely by university scholars--and practices carried out by K-12 educators and students. While feminist poststructuralist theorists have critiqued critical…

Curry, Tommy – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2008
The recent pop culture iconography of the Critical Race Theory (CRT) label has attracted more devoted (white) fans than a 90s boy band. In philosophy, this trend is evidenced by the growing number of white feminists extending their work in gender analogically to questions of race and identity, as well as the unchecked use of the CRT label to…

Keddie, Amanda – Australian Educational Researcher, 2005
Through a feminist agenda that seeks to redress gender inequities through remedies of redistribution and recognition, this paper draws on Fraser's work (1997) to articulate a framework of transformative justice. In moving beyond the competing logics underpinning such remedies, this framework adopts a transformative theory and politics in…
