Clark, Jonathan Owen; Jackson, Louise H. – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
Entrepreneurship skills have become a naturalised part of many curricula in higher education, especially in arts contexts. But what does the term actually mean? By investigating entrepreneurship research, and connecting it with political philosophy, we explore the ways in which the elusive figure of the entrepreneur, both in the academy and in…

Syamprasad, K. V. – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
This article seeks to develop a critical perspective on silence, dialogue, and oppression in out-of-school education, in dialogue with Freire. It also shows how my classroom experiences or fieldwork incidents mediated this dialogue. Freire's concept of problem-posing education has been chosen as the central theoretical framework; that further…

McMillan, Chris – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
While the loss of space for critical engagement has been a primary focus for critics of the neo-liberal transformation of higher education, the recasting of the relationship between education and economy has not meant the death of critical thinking. Instead, I argue that critical thinking has emerged as a binding point in higher education…

Khan, Alya; Gabriel, John – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
The article explores the landscape in higher education in which old binary divisions are officially denied yet have been reinvigorated through mix of conservative and neo-liberal policies. Efforts to resist such pressures can happen at different levels, including, in this case, module design and classroom practice. The rationale for such…

Matthews, Miranda – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
Dynamics of policy making for education are invested with intersubjective tensions, as different stakeholders seek to meet their changing needs in the shifting ground of neoliberalism. Recent literature emphasising the need for boundary-work seeks to bridge the tensions in order to broker resolutions. I argue that perspectives on boundary-work…

Martínez Virto, Lucía; Rodríguez Fernández, Juan Ramón – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
Not only numerous academic and empirical studies recognise the educational factor as decisive on life and work trajectories, but also its integrating potential and role in the promotion of social cohesion are widely acknowledged. The diversity of current societies, the economic situation and the impact of neoliberal policies represent new…

This article, placed in the general framework of a global attempt to reform education by making it comply with neoconservative and neoliberal directions, discusses the particular case of Greece, and investigates the possibility of an international educational paradigm-seeking to impose a market reasoning on school culture and create a disciplined…

Bokel Reis, Cláudia Maria; Dos Santos, William Soares – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
In times of several criticisms of free public schooling and resistance to social and authorial transformation of teacher and teaching education, a dialogical and critical perspective towards teacher education has become of paramount relevance. By looking at student-teacher memoirs of formation, the researchers examine transformative movements of…

Ziskin, Mary B.; Rabourn, Karyn E.; Hossler, Donald – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
Performance-based funding (PBF) for public colleges and universities is increasingly prevalent worldwide, as a part of a broader pattern of marketisation in public education. This study focused on developing an empirical view of how, and in what contexts, policy makers use the concepts of neoliberal economics to design and support PerformanceBased…

This paper sets out to understand the process of service industry subject formation as read through a combination of charter school policy handbooks and fast-food employee training manuals.

Wiklund, Matilda – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2018
Understanding the media as co-producer of education policy is at the centre of this study. The media's strong focus on education crisis in recent decades serves as a background. The aim is to investigate education discourses that are dominantly actualised in media texts during electoral periods, and to analyse how they construct education and…
