Cox, Fiona M.; Marshall, Alan D. – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
Government statistics show that children with special educational needs and disabilities do not achieve as well academically as their peers, which impacts on later employment and socioeconomic circumstances. Addressing these inequalities is a key policy area which currently lacks a satisfactory evidence base. To explore the issue, the present…

PK is based in social realism, and the article suggests how critical realism could inform more illuminating analyses of knowledge and power. The two versions of realism are…

This article examines young people's sense of self and collective identity in relation to their use of specific digital tools available at their school.

Romero-Tena, Rosalía; Perera, Víctor H.; Martín-Gutiérrez, Ángela – British Educational Research Journal, 2020

Holloway, Sarah L.; Pimlott-Wilson, Helena – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
Education researchers have explored the marketisation of schools resulting from neoliberal education policy, but little attention has been paid to supplementary education markets. Supplementary education services, such as private tuition, are delivered outside of school but designed to improve performance within it. A small body of research…

Acquah, Emmanuel O.; Szelei, Nikolett; Katz, Heidi T. – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
Despite multiculturalism being discussed in teacher education, teachers still often feel insecure in the classroom around developing meaningful practices. This might be due to several issues about how preservice teachers are taught. In this article, modelling culturally responsive pedagogy is demonstrated as a promising strategy in shaping…

Wyness, Michael – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
Research, policy and practice on education in recent years has focused attention on the mediating role that parents play in children's schooling. Parents have been constructed as responsible agents; as consumers, investors and partners in the performance-oriented educational project. Much of the literature has looked at parent-school relations…

Bloomfield, Corey; Harreveld, Bobby; Fisher, Rickie – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
Concerns have been raised internationally about whether alternative learning programmes are producing low-skilled labourers for rapidly disappearing twenty-first-century jobs.

Wyse, Dominic – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
This article explores the nature of education as a vital part of human knowledge.

Malone, Anthony; Hogan, Pádraig – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
We begin by arguing that the continuing dominance of 'evidence-based' thinking in educational policymaking does serious harm to the notion of evidence itself; also that it brings a loss of coherence to education as a practice that might wish to be regarded as a coherent and research-informed one. The second section of the article suggests that the…

Lu, Binwei – British Educational Research Journal, 2020
Previous research evaluating grammar school effectiveness has generally relied on snapshot or longitudinal regression models to deal with pre-existing differences between grammar school pupils and those in non-selective schools. These passive designs are based on correlations, and cannot demonstrate clear positive causal relationships between…
