Smithers, Kathleen; Harris, Jess; Goff, Mhorag; Spina, Nerida; Bailey, Simon – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2022
Neoliberal reform of the university sector has resulted in increasing numbers of academics employed on casual or fixed-term contracts.

Entwistle, Lewis – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2022
The precarity of professionals working in schools and colleges at a time of change has been strongly accented by the competitive markets that currently characterise education and the influence of its global reforms.

Crimmins, Gail; Lipton, Briony; McIntyre, Joanna; de Villiers Scheepers, Margarietha; English, Peter – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2022
Government policies are forcing universities to narrowly emphasise employability, which does not bode well for the Creative Industries (CI). Despite being one of the fastest-growing and diverse employment sectors, CI degrees have been criticised for failing to deliver adequate employment prospects. The employability focus, which serves 'the…

Jopling, Michael; Harness, Oliver – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2022
Research into the effects of pressure on school leaders has focused more on its impacts at the system level than on the human impact on leaders. Using theories of vulnerability, this paper attempts to redress this balance, examining the challenges school leaders in North East England faced during the initial phase of the COVID-19 pandemic and the…

Loughran, John – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2021
Although the literature illustrates well how leadership can (and has been) theorised, it is much less common to read about the idiosyncratic demands on leaders that shed light on the emotional responses and their individual learnings derived of those experiences. This paper attempts to document aspects of leadership through a consideration of the…

Gardner-McTaggart, Alexander Charles – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2021
International Baccalaureate (IB) Directors of international schools command a paradoxical space of progressive futures, cloaking injustice and whiteness. This is enacted daily through policy, recruitment, teaching and remuneration which privileges the empowered, exploits the marginalised and thereby delivers a critical education of questionable…

Vainker, Stephen – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2021
This paper explores the issue of how children come to be treated as workers in schools that are run as though they were businesses. It describes how the 'soft' form of human resource management provides a useful model for school reform, since it seeks to increase the productivity of the worker through 'humanistic' means, treating the worker as a…

Trinidad, Jose Eos – Journal of Educational Administration and History, 2021
The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has disrupted and posed great challenges for kindergarten-grade 12 education systems. Initial studies on education and COVID-19 often focus on technology use, student learning, and school reopening plans. However, debates on the form of instruction become futile when stakeholders are unclear about what the…
