Falabella, Alejandra – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Public policies have a moral order, an ethical horizon. They offer a vocabulary of imagined micro-policies. Using the case of Chile, this paper examines the ways in which accountability policies are reworked within schools and how they affect actors' subjectivities. It adds new findings to the existing body of research on school accountability…

Brown, Phillip; Souto-Otero, Manuel – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
A major focus of sociological research is on the role of the credential as a 'currency of opportunity', mediating the relationship between education and occupational destinations. However, the labour market has largely remained a 'black box' in sociological and education policy studies. This article draws on 'big data' from over 21,000,000 job…

Gillborn, Sarah; Rickett, Bridgette; Muskett, Tom; Woolhouse, Maxine – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Recent 'obesity' preventions focus heavily on children, widely regarded as the future of society. The National Child Measurement Programme (NCMP) is a flagship government programme in England that annually measures the Body Mass Index (BMI) of children in Reception (aged 4-5) and Year 6 (aged 10-11) in order to identify 'at risk' children and…

Haugen, Cecilie Rønning – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Oslo introduced a combination of school choice, per capita funding, balanced management and accountability in their public schools. Recent studies point out that this has increased segregation. In this study, teachers have been interviewed about their experiences. Bernstein's "classification" and "framing tools" have been used…

Rappleye, Jeremy; Komatsu, Hikaru; Uchida, Yukiko; Krys, Kuba; Markus, Hazel – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Facing increasing critique that PISA focuses too narrowly on cognitive achievement and human/knowledge capital, the OECD has recently shifted some of its focus to student happiness. The 2017 Students' Well-Being report distinguishes between 'happy schools' and 'unhappy schools', showing that among students who combined high performance and life…

Courtois, Aline – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Drawing on the concept of hypermobility, the paper examines a case of study-abroad mobility from a governmentality perspective. Based on a critical analysis of policy texts and interviews with Irish students who have taken part in the Erasmus exchange programme, it argues that under the conditions of neoliberal globalisation, the normalisation of…

Anderson, Kate T.; Holloway, Jessica – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Discourse has featured in studies of educational policy as an analytic and methodological tool, theoretical frame, realm of implication, and even a foundational definition of educational policy itself (e.g.) Despite the centrality of discourse as a frame for exploring educational policy and its implications, the ways that discourse is defined or…

Passy, Rowena; Ovenden-Hope, Tanya – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
This paper is a response to an earlier article in the "Journal of Education Policy," which calls for 'new ideas and constructive principles and practices for the provision of socially-just education'. We first discuss how an economistic approach to education entrenches socioeconomic disadvantage and argue that, in the light of evidence…

Clarke, Matthew – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
This paper examines the tensions between education policy's attachment to notions such as excellence and inclusion and its investments in managerial tropes of competition, continuous quality improvement, standards and accountability that are at odds with and which undermine its attachments. In order to explore these tensions, I draw on the…

Waslander, Sietske; Hooge, Edith H.; Theisens, Henno C.; Pater, Cissy J. – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
In the wake of neo-liberal informed global trends to set performance standards and intensify accountability, the Dutch government aimed for 'raising standards for basic skills'. While the implementation of literacy standards was hardly noticed, the introduction of numeracy standards caused a major backlash in secondary schools, which ended in a…

Orphan, Cecilia M.; Gildersleeve, Ryan E.; Mills, A. Paige – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Policy elites use rhetoric in speeches and press releases to provide framing that is intended to influence public opinion. These rhetorical events can be treated as instances in which speech usefully promotes particular discourses. Indeed, elected officials are able to influence how individuals think about problems and solutions through speeches…

Tarlau, Rebecca; Moeller, Kathryn – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
This article explores how the Base Nacional Comum Curricular (National Learning Standards), entered the policy debate in Brazil and became the most important reform initiative of the Ministry of Education between 2015 and 2017. We argue that this accelerated policy process was contingent upon the practice of philanthropizing consent: foundations'…

Resnik, Julia – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Since the 1980s, education in Canada has been through a process that led to school choice, targeting the improvement of students' performance through school competition. These policies fostering an education quasi-market became an ideal framework for the expansion of IB schools. Since the Diploma Programme of the International Baccalaureate (IBDP)…
