Parr, Graham; Bulfin, Scott; Diamond, Fleur; Wood, Narelle; Owen, Ceridwen – Oxford Review of Education, 2020

McCaw, Christopher T. – Oxford Review of Education, 2020
'Mindfulness' is a term which holds increasing currency within educational research, policy and practice. However, there is substantial variation in its use, especially with respect to its historical roots in the Buddhist tradition. I develop a conceptual distinction between 'thin' mindfulness and 'thick' mindfulness, with attendant ontological,…

Kirby, Philip – Oxford Review of Education, 2020
The 'dyslexia debate' is resilient. In the media, a key component of the debate is the notion that dyslexia does not exist, popularised by a series of vociferous commentators. For them, dyslexia is an invention of overly-concerned parents, supported by a clique of private educational psychologists willing to offer a diagnosis -- for a fee -- even…

Jones, Steven; Vigurs, Katy; Harris, Diane – Oxford Review of Education, 2020
Measures that economise education are typically accompanied by discourses that prime society for change by framing the policy in individualistic and consumeristic terms. This article explores the emergence of 'value for money' (VfM) discourses in the English higher education sector. Using Bourdieu's thinking tools, we explore how VfM is…

Gibbs, Paul – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
Although there has been considerable debate in contemporary literature on the erosion of the public good in higher education, most of it has been concentrated on the word 'public' rather than on the notion of 'good'. Further, the idea of higher education and the organisations for its delivery have become conflated through a focus on the 'good' as…

Pring, Richard – Oxford Review of Education, 2019
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is making it a requirement of all schools within the Emirates (both public and private) to follow a programme of moral education (MEP), at all ages from grades 1 to 13, which is designed centrally. Explicitly secular and humanist in its approach, this is a remarkable development in a country where Islam is the…

Belas, Oli – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
This article aims to introduce Ernst Cassirer, and his philosophy of symbolic form, to education studies, and, in doing so, to challenge the widespread but deeply flawed views of knowledge and so-called knowledge-based education that have shaped recent education policy in England. After sketching the current educational landscape, and then some of…
