Carrasco, Alejandro; Gunter, Helen M. – Educational Review, 2019
Privatisation of public services education is a key feature of the Global Education Reform Movement (GERM), where policy convictions, ideas, and strategies are integral to the "spreading and mutating" of reforms. While there are important projects that seek to describe and explain major changes to restructuring, ownership and funding,…

Ellis, Viv; Steadman, Sarah; Trippestad, Tom Are – Educational Review, 2019
This article addresses the question: how do a new cadre of teacher education providers in England, imbued in the discourses of the Global Education Reform Movement, construct the problem of a supposedly "failing" existing teacher education system associated with universities; what solutions to this problem do they propose and on what…

Fuller, Kay – Educational Review, 2019
In neoliberal times, marketisation, managerialism and performativity suggest a values-free approach to educational leadership. School leaders, tasked with driving educational reforms, have not always resisted the reforms they find unpalatable, such as a standards agenda, prescribed curricula, high stakes testing and the fragmentation of the…

Verger, Antoni; Parcerisa, Lluís; Fontdevila, Clara – Educational Review, 2019
The Global Education Reform Movement (GERM) is expanding internationally and reaching countries that seemed to be immune to this education reform approach until quite recently. Accordingly, more and more educational systems in the world are articulated around three main policy principles: accountability, standards and decentralisation. National…

Fu, Guopeng; Clarke, Anthony – Educational Review, 2019
This study examines a group of teachers' moral agency in the context of China's curriculum reform. While the reform possesses neo-liberal features such as decentralisation and education for global competitiveness, it also attempts to undermine the long-standing influence of exam-oriented education in China. Employing ethnographic approaches, the…

Winchip, Emily; Stevenson, Howard; Milner, Alison – Educational Review, 2019
As the Global Education Reform Movement (GERM) spreads, key questions that attempt to identify both the nature and the increasing scope and scale of this phenomenon become empirically significant. The concern of this article is to highlight some of the complexities of measuring one key element of the GERM: the privatisation of public education…

O'Leary, Matt; Wood, Phil – Educational Review, 2019
The Global Education Reform Movement's (GERM) interest in the quality of teaching and teacher effectiveness has focused largely on schools and children's attainment to date, with higher education (HE) remaining an outlier. Yet the neoliberal agenda that has dominated HE policy globally over the last two decades closely reflects the focus and…

English has increasingly become an essential second language as well as a language for international communication. However, there is little research that examines the dimensions of mobile learning for both researchers and instructional designers and focuses on effective uses of the latest mobile learning technologies for education. There have…

Wong, Billy; Chiu, Yuan-Li Tiffany – Educational Review, 2019
In England, higher education is more marketised than ever before as the difference between students and consumers is increasingly blurred, propelled by the rise in tuition fees. With students demanding more for their money, the role of university lecturers continues to change. This study explores the ways in which lecturers re-evaluate and…

Conus, Xavier; Fahrni, Laurent – Educational Review, 2019
The family--school relationship develops largely during face-to-face interactions between parents and teachers.

Yet, teacher practices regularly express a reluctance to implement reciprocal…

Siddiqui, Nadia; Gorard, Stephen; See, Beng Huat – Educational Review, 2019
Schools are places where children can learn behaviour, skills and attitudes that have lifelong relevance. In England, despite the continuing emphasis on attainment, there are clear moves to consider also the wider and non-cognitive outcomes of schooling -- such as pupils' development of trust, critical thinking and civic-mindedness. However, there…

Sneyers, Eline; De Witte, Kristof – Educational Review, 2018
This article provides a meta-analysis on the effect of academic probation, student-faculty mentoring and need-based grants on various student outcomes. Using 25 (quasi-) experimental studies, we find that academic probation has a significant negative effect on retention (d = -0.17), while it does not have an effect on graduation. Student-faculty…
