Chua, S. M. J. – London Review of Education, 2018
In this paper, I give various reasons why the doctorate in education (EdD) programme helpfully heightens our normative senses. The writing of a thesis in time, and hence the realization that the same time--that window of opportunity--to do other things and enjoy other experiences is traded off, comports the student in a manner that heightens his…

Bladh, Gabriel; Stolore, Martin; Kristiansson, Martin – London Review of Education, 2018
Previous subject-specific education research has shown that education in social studies subjects is dominated by strong subject traditions, while current social issues are seldom addressed and the connection to academic disciplines is weak. Putting this result into context, we discuss how the debate initiated by Michael Young about 'powerful…

Bouwmans, Matthijs; Béneker, Tine – London Review of Education, 2018
This article explores the usefulness of Maude's translation of Young's idea of powerful knowledge into geography education.

Golding, Jennie – London Review of Education, 2018
This article proposes a reframing of the purposes of mathematics education for the twenty-first century that combines apparently divergent philosophical approaches, arguing that the consequent empowerment should as a matter of individual equity be available to all young people (as well as of benefit to wider society). It suggests that the global…

Hudson, Brian – London Review of Education, 2018
This article contributes to current debates on progressive, knowledge-based approaches to the curriculum by addressing the question of what it is that students are entitled to learn in school mathematics. From the outset it recognizes progressive arguments that teaching should be reconnected with the emancipatory ambitions of education. In doing…

Platt, Nicky – London Review of Education, 2018
This article draws on experience both within commercial textbook publishing and on textbook-development projects at the UCL Institute of Education to interrogate the current dynamics of 'neoliberal' edu-business (after Ball, 2012). The author discusses some damaging limitations inherent in publishing coursebooks predicated on what Young and Muller…

Deng, Zongyi – London Review of Education, 2018
The question of content -- that is, knowledge in the curriculum -- has all but disappeared from global policy and academic discourses concerning teaching and teachers. Invoking the work of Michael Young and his colleagues concerning 'bringing knowledge back in', Bildung-centred Didaktik, and Joseph J. Schwab's curriculum thinking, this article…

Gericke, Niklas; Hudson, Brian; Olin-Scheller, Christina; Stolare, Martin – London Review of Education, 2018
In this article, we explore the concept of 'powerful knowledge' which, from a curriculum studies perspective, refers to the aspects of content knowledge towards which teaching should be oriented. We then consider how the concept of 'powerful knowledge' can be developed and operationalized as a research framework within studies in subject-specific…

Hayes, Sean; Jopling, Michael; Gul, Ruki – London Review of Education, 2018
This article examines whether the so-called 'London effect', in which London's schools improved rapidly and outperformed the rest of England on key performance measures between 2003 and 2013, has persisted through the high levels of change that have continued to characterize the school system in England since 2013. Using detailed analysis of…

Brain drain is a context-based issue and has direct impact on the quality of higher education for institutions where a significant number of instructors migrate to take up work in other countries.

Longhurst, Robyn; Jones, Alister – London Review of Education, 2018
In 2014, the University of Waikato launched the Curriculum Enhancement Programme (CEP). As the leaders of this programme we have used autoethnography to reflect critically on our experience. Throughout the course of the CEP some things have gone well; others, in hindsight, have not gone so well and in retrospect we would have done them…

Bamford, Jan; Pollard, Lucie – London Review of Education, 2018
This paper addresses evidence that developing a sense of belonging for students from different ethnic groups impacts on their engagement.

The paper proposes that cosmopolitan engagement…
