Liberal Studies was initially introduced as a non-statutory subject in Hong Kong in 1992.

Zhang, Wei; Bray, Mark – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
The global expansion of mass schooling has greatly increased opportunities for low-income families, and governments have devoted much effort to equalising access and quality in education systems.

Clapham, Andrew; Vickers, Rob – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
Mathematics education is a high-stakes indicator of success in 'über' performative systems. The search to address England's mathematics underperformance resulted in cross-national attraction toward, and policy borrowing of, 'teaching for mastery' from the high-performing education systems of Shanghai and Singapore. We argue that the cultural…

Power, Sally; Taylor, Chris – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
This paper focuses on the 'mainstreaming' of charities into schools. There have been growing concerns about the permeation of business and business values in education, but relatively little attention has been paid to the ways in which schools are increasingly engaged in the 'business' of fundraising for charities. Drawing on survey data from the…

Hills, Peter Matthew – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
This article argues that deliberative theory provides an important contribution in the debate about the legitimacy of an Islamic influence within the British education system. The contribution is a timely one, in light of the tendency to view issues involving Islam and Muslims through the distorting prism of Islamophobia. The contribution of…

Rappleye, Jeremy; Komatsu, Hikaru – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
East Asian dominance in international large-scale assessments is widely known. This is often explained as an outcome of highly competitive, exam-oriented education systems in East Asia, wherein students partake in a fierce competition for limited college entrance. Although achievement scores may be comparatively higher, the argument goes, the…
