Carey, Gemma; Dickinson, Helen; Olney, Sue – Evidence & Policy: A Journal of Research, Debate and Practice, 2019
Implementation has long been a vexed issue in the mainstream public policy literature. The literature has remained more concerned with the design of policy and evidence of its impact than on the process by which it plays out. While implementation is often portrayed as a simple process of adopting best practice, experiences indicate that it is a…

Mackinlay, Elizabeth – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2013
In this paper, the author is going to turn around and around ideas about feminist pedagogy and feminist politics in the academy in a similar way to take us to the kind of "social somewhere" of which Barone and Eisner write, to look at the same material in familiar and unusual ways--here a fiction, there a fanciful retelling of facts,…

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…

Ohito, Esther Oganda – Curriculum Inquiry, 2016
The currents of elitism surging through curriculum studies in the United States have long been of chief concern to critical scholars in the field. Elements of this elitism running along racialized, gendered, classed and other such lines elide to marginalize knowledge generated by and about the "other." For this racialized, gendered,…

Öchsner, Marco; Murray, Georgina – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2019
We examine the emergence of the 'postfeminist' sensibility from feminist theory and praxis, and its relation and relevance to education. Analytical frameworks such as postfeminism and intersectionality have given equal weight to recognition-based struggles, such as those based on sexual, racial, class-based, gender-related identities. We follow…

Bunjun, Benita – Education as Change, 2018
The Royal Commission on the Status of Women in Canada (RCSW), embedded in liberal hegemonic feminist ideology, is largely the landscape that influenced and continues to influence the simultaneous politicising and depoliticisation of the mainstream women's movement in Canada since the 1970s. The testimonies and recommendations of the RCSW…

Blaise, Mindy; Taylor, Affrica – Young Children, 2012
Queer theory is a new theory about gender. It is relevant to early childhood educators who wish to find new ways of understanding and challenging persistent gender stereotypes. The theory links gender stereotypes to the norms of heterosexuality. It is definitely "not" a theory about gay and lesbian identity. Queer theory is "queer" because it…

Wilbraham, Lindy – Race, Ethnicity and Education, 2016
African universities have been called to respond to the social issues of trauma, adversity, injustice and inequality that trouble their embedding communities, their staff and their students. The need for South African universities to respond to HIV/Aids (in particular) includes the opening up of new knowledge about and ways of managing the impacts…

Thinking with feminist, queer and decolonial scholars,…

Fairchild, Sheryl D. – Feminist Teacher: A Journal of the Practices, Theories, and Scholarship of Feminist Teaching, 2017
In this article, the author discusses a study that she launched to open up conversations about age. She set out to collect and record the "opinions" of older women. She had been a returning student, and as a teacher at a community college with nontraditional-age students, she found herself perpetuating the cycle of silence about age in…

Mooney, Amanda; Hickey, Chris – Asia-Pacific Journal of Health, Sport and Physical Education, 2017
Reflexive accounts of physical education (PE) pedagogy and practice offer potential to reveal much about the intended and unintended learning, for both students and teachers, that can result from certain pedagogic encounters. Despite the promotion of reflective practice/s as a possible "panacea" for improved teaching and learning, there…

Di Chiro, Giovanna – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2014
One thing about which there is widespread consensus is that the earth and its inhabitants are in social and environmental peril. This is where the consensus ends, however, for there is equally widespread disagreement as to the nature and causes of the problems (more social or more environmental), the severity of the problems (for whom are they…

"Washday at the Pa" ('pa' is used colloquially by Pakeha to refer to a Maori settlement) is the title of an old schoolbook, a picture reading book for younger schoolchildren, which was produced in 1964 by the state education system in Aotearoa-New Zealand in 1964, written and photographed by Ans Westra, who later became one of the most…
