Arthur, James; Kristjánsson, Kristján; Vogler, Candace – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Many Faculties of Education in the UK and elsewhere have 'social justice' written into their mission statements. But are they concerned by questions of social justice in education, or has the term become somewhat vacuous and devoid of substantive meaning? The present article subjects recent discourses about social justice in education to scrutiny…

Choo, Suzanne S. – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Recent debates among scholars in Literature education have led to polarizing views about the aims of the subject. The debate reignites ancient quarrels about the aesthetic and political values of literary study and relatedly, the different pedagogical approaches to teaching. In the first part of this paper, I explore the aesthetic-political divide…

Houghton, Ann-Marie; Armstrong, Jo; Okeke, Romanus Izuchukwu – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Recent policy on careers guidance in England suggests a somewhat straightforward process. The assumption is that quality careers guidance will enable young people to make informed career-related decisions. However, the 'reality' of provision is far more complex, as highlighted by the findings from a small in-depth study of careers provision in one…

The impact of neoliberal reforms of education systems on the work of teachers and school leaders, particularly in relation to high-stakes accountability frameworks, has been extensively studied in recent decades.

Prieto-Latorre, Claudia; Marcenaro-Gutierrez, Oscar D.; Vignoles, Anna – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
School segregation by socio-economic background is a feature of most education systems and impacts negatively on educational outcomes for poor children. Evidence on this issue is lacking for the Spanish primary education system and in particular the extent to which a) poor and rich students sort into different types of school and b) the extent of…

This article examines the potentiality, acceptability and ethical considerations of a mindfulness-based intervention (MBI) for supporting pupils' mental well-being in a junior school.

Han, Shuangmiao; Mills, David – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
China has undergone unprecedented changes since the Reform and Opening-up policy in 1978. Policy experimentation (PE) has been key in generating and catalysing reforms in the process. This study proposes a conceptual framework to describe the different pathways of PE-enabled reforms. Comparing two empirically informed case studies, this study…

Roulston, Stephen; Cook, Sally – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Divided societies emerging from conflict are found around the globe, and these divisions can cause, and may be perpetuated by, disunity in educational provision. Establishing sound and equitable education is considered vital in promoting reconciliation in places with apparently intractable conflict. Northern Ireland was involved in ethno-sectarian…

Bishop, Jo – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Educational paraprofessionals have had an increased presence in English state schools since the first decade of the 21st century, but research has been limited in terms of who undertakes paraprofessional roles, what they entail and how such work is perceived by others. This paper compares one such paraprofessional role, the learning mentor, with…

Milliken, Matthew; Bates, Jessica; Smith, Alan – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
The community separation of the school system in Northern Ireland limits opportunities for daily cross-community interaction between young people. The deployment pattern of teachers is largely consistent with this divide. Pupils are therefore unlikely to be taught by a teacher from a community background other than their own. Nonetheless, recent…

German Ben-Hayun, Shiran; Perry-Hazan, Lotem – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
This study examines whether and how teachers who work in low- and high-SES primary schools name and mobilise their pupils' online rights. As children's out-of-school behaviour lays at the margins of teachers' professional responsibilities, this context enables a robust inquiry into teachers' commitment to pupils' rights. The research design is…

Forbes, Joan; Maxwell, Claire; McCartney, Elspeth – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2021
Our paper analyses data from four Heads of elite fee-charging girls' schools in Scotland, focusing on how two social landscape changes -- changing pupil demographics and pressures on schools' charitable status -- may have reshaped the schools' institutional habitus. Following Bourdieu, we examine this question through the concept of habitus clivé.…
