Taylor, Chris – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2018
Over the last 20 years, the use of administrative data has become central to understanding pupil attainment and school performance.

Lewis, Steven; Hardy, Ian – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2017
This article draws upon recent theorising of the "becoming topological" of space--specifically, how new social spaces are constituted through relations rather than physical locations--to explore how standardised data, and specifically test data, have influenced teachers' work and learning. We outline the varied ways in which teacher…

Kocór, Marcin; Worek, Barbara – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2017
Educational activity among adults is not only a key factor of social development but also one of the most important priorities of public policies. Although large sums have been earmarked and numerous actions undertaken to encourage adult learning, many people remain educationally passive, a particularly acute problem in Poland. We point to the…

MacKenzie, Alison; Hedge, Nicki; Enslin, Penny – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2017
Noting public concern about sexual exploitation, abuse and sexualisation, we argue that sex education in the UK needs revision. Choice is a feature of current sex education policy and, acknowledging that choice can be problematic, we defend its place in an approach to sex education premised on informed deliberation, relational autonomy, a…
