Emejulu, Akwugo; McGregor, Callum – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
In this article, we attempt to define and explore a concept of 'radical digital citizenship' and its implications for digital education. We argue that the 'digital' and its attendant technologies are constituted by on-going materialist struggles for equality and justice in the Global South and North which are erased in the dominant literature and…

Petchauer, Emery; Baker-Doyle, Kira J. – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
This article explores what happens behind the closed doors and in the 'black box' of high-stakes educational testing. Our specific concern is licensure exams that are often gatekeepers into teacher education programs and the profession. Leveraging the spatial turn across critical social theory and other disciplines, we conceptualize the test space…

Williams, Hakim Mohandas Amani – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
I reappropriate the image of a space-time warp and its notion of disorientation to argue that colonialism created a warp in Trinidad's educational system. Through an analysis of school violence and the wider network of structural violence in which it is steeped, I focus on three outmoded aspects as evidence of this warp--hierarchies, curricula and…

Lewis, Steven; Hogan, Anna – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
This article explores the uptake of so-called fast policy solutions to problems in different education policy contexts and highlights the potential impacts that can arise from such policymaking approaches. We draw upon recent literature and theorising around notions of fast policy and evidence-informed policymaking, which suggests that, in an…

Perry-Hazan, Lotem – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
This paper analyzes the challenges embedded in the conflict between the right to accessible education, which implies a prohibition on discriminatory practices in school admission, and the right to adaptable education, which accommodates children's cultural affiliations. It shows that a normative lens, which examines the ways by which legal rules…

Head, James Christopher – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
Following the trend of consequential accountability in US public education, New York City introduced a teacher evaluation program during the 2013-2014 school year that linked teachers' individual performance ratings with their students' exam scores. As this program systemically alters the nature of teacher--student relationships by transforming…

Simmie, Geraldine Mooney; Moles, Joanne; O'Grady, Emmanuel – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
This paper examines 'good teaching' within a policy ensemble where teachers' subjectification and practices are underpinned by new modes of evaluation and enforcement. Although the paper is written with specific concern for teachers in the Republic of Ireland, the literature demonstrates that concerns raised resonate internationally. Theoretical…

Decuypere, Mathias; Simons, Maarten – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
Is there (still) something specific about academic practice in contemporary neoliberal times? This article reports on a sociomaterial, ethnographic study informed by Deleuze's untimely empiricism conducted at two research centres of a research university. We unfold the specificity of 'the academic' by elaborating upon two central notions:…

Academic capitalism is an outcome of the interplay between neoliberalism, globalisation, markets and universities. Universities have embraced the commercialisation of knowledge, technology transfer and research funding as well as introducing performance and audit practices. Academic capitalism has become internalised as a regulatory mechanism by…

Lambert, Kirsten; Wright, Peter; Currie, Jan; Pascoe, Robin – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
This article explores the effects of neoliberalism and performative educational cultures on secondary school drama classrooms. We consider the ways Deleuze and Guattari's schizoanalysis and Butler's concept of gender performance enable us to chart the embodied, relational, spatial and affective energies that inhabit the often neoliberal and…

Formosinho, Maria; Jesus, Paulo; Reis, Carlos – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
Language is the main resource for meaningful action, including the very formation of selves and psychosocial identities, shaped by practical norms, beliefs, and values. Thus, language education constitutes one of the most powerful means for both social reproduction and social production and ideological maintenance and utopian innovation. In this…

James, the participant, was embarking on the project of becoming a good student, as he understood it, after struggling and leaving school previously. Drawing on interviews, classroom observations and written…

Luckett, Kathy; Naicker, Veeran – Critical Studies in Education, 2019
This article addresses the challenge of reclaiming higher education (HE) as a public good for building effective democracies. We use Bernstein's model of pedagogic rights and Fraser's model of social justice to develop a normative framework for discussing how universities in unequal societies might mitigate social injustice. Referring to recent…
