Cushing, Ian – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
This article presents an analysis of various language policy mechanisms currently circulating in secondary schools in England, with a particular focus on those that intermingle 'language', 'standard English' and 'discipline'. Although the connections between language, ideology and behaviour are well established within critical educational…

Beime, Kristina S.; Englund, Hans; Gerdin, Jonas – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
Neoliberalism has become a highly dominating and taken-for-granted way of organising the university sector around the world. In the critical educational literature, this market-based rationality has been scrutinised in detail over the past decades. However, rather scant attention has been directed to how university managers and administrators,…

Vinas-Forcade, Jennifer; Mels, Cindy; Van Houtte, Mieke; Valcke, Martin; Derluyn, Ilse – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
In 2016, Uruguay started gathering longitudinal student data to improve educational trajectories by putting in place an 'early alert' system. Underlying the system is the understanding that prior schooling predicts likelihood of grade repetition and grade repetition predicts later school dropout, while close follow-up can help prevent both…

Marks, Gary N. – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
There is an enduring issue on whether student- and school-level covariates should be included in value-added school effects models, in addition to prior achievement. Proponents argue that the addition of covariates allows fairer comparisons of schools, whereas opponents argue that it excuses poorly performing schools and obscures policy-relevant…

Burnett, Cathy; Merchant, Guy; Guest, Ian – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
Whilst there is plenty of debate on the nature and role of data in social science research, data in schools tend to be understood in terms of numbers and used in limited ways linked primarily to attainment. The 'datafication' of schooling has been strongly critiqued for its powerful impacts on policy and practice, pupils' experience, the…

Scholes, Laura; Spina, Nerida; Comber, Barbara – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
This article disrupts dominant discourses around boys and reading that often homogenise young males as reluctant, disengaged and, at times, adversarial readers. Rather than essentialising boys, we argue there is a need for a more sophisticated knowledge base about the influences, constraints and diverse experiences of boys as readers in society…

Joseph-Richard, Paul; Almpanis, Timos; Wu, Qi; Jamil, Mohammad Golam – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
Integration of research into teaching is a major area of interest in the field of higher education. Considerable work has been done on how staff and students view this integration, how it can be achieved in practice and how it might best be researched by scholars. However, relatively little research has considered how research-informed teaching…

Eynon, Rebecca – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
The development of digital skills for all is a key focus of many educational policies across the globe. Despite the significant attention paid to the nature and suitability of such policies targeted at young people, there has been far less focus on digital skills policies targeted at adults. This article contributes to this literature. It outlines…

Christie, Fiona; Burke, Ciaran – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
How do young graduates view the role of immediate families in influencing/supporting them as they start their working lives and how do those reflections affect how they think of themselves as graduates? Social, political and economic changes have led to many young people being dependent on family for longer, but how does this play out in their…

Bonal, Xavier; Zancajo, Adrián; Scandurra, Rosario – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
This article explores the relationship between school choice, student mobility and school segregation in Barcelona. The case of Barcelona is particularly interesting because the school admissions policy combines a particular design of catchment area with a significant level of choice options. We work on students and school register datasets for…

Kitchen, Jennifer – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
This article, understanding populism as an essentially undemocratic ideology, argues that the pro-social theatre education approach of ensemble pedagogy can offer a model of educational practice which counters these anti-democratic rhetorics by creating a shared space for the enactment of empathetic discourse. Via an ethnography of the UK…

Lasselle, Laurence; Johnson, Mike – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
At a time when interventions in widening access to, and participation in, higher education aim to maximise impact by engaging with schools located in the most deprived communities, school pupils in rural communities, and who experience deprivation, are, in practice, less likely to benefit. Using statistics available from the Scottish government,…

Mac an Ghaill, Mairtin; Haywood, Chris – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
Recently, national populist politics has been translated with the emergence of two overlapping narratives of Islamophobia and anti-EU immigration media discourses. Such discourses have been made highly visible in the increased spike in hate crimes that have been a hidden cost of the national(ist) debate about Britain leaving the European Union…
