Keep, Ewart; Mayhew, Ken – Oxford Review of Education, 2014
In recent years concerns about inequality have been growing in prominence within UK policy debates.

This article reviews current interpretations of Labour's education policy in relation to gender. Such interpretations see the marginalisation of gender equality in mainstream educational policy as a result of the discursive shift from egalitarianism to that of performativity. Performativity in the school context is shown to have contradictory…
