Heimans, Stephen; Singh, Parlo – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Bruno Latour famously asked, "Why has critique run out of steam?". In this paper we draw on his ideas to present some resources for "gathering"--for doing education policy research with others--which we term "critical-dissensual collaboration". We believe that our education policy research "critique from…

Boyask, Ruth; Vigurs, Katy – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
In this article we argue that a refined understanding of "public" and "public engagement" can help researchers who produce critical research make better decisions towards achieving policy influence. We acknowledge the challenges critical researchers face in putting their research to work within the public domain. Critical…

Laing, Karen; Mazzoli Smith, Laura; Todd, Liz – Policy Futures in Education, 2018

Lupton, Ruth; Hayes, Debra – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
This paper is motivated by a shared concern over the apparent lack of inclusion of socially critical research in educational policy intended to address inequitable outcomes from schooling. We recognise that while this is partly (perhaps mainly) a political problem, an effective response by socially critical scholars must also take into account the…

This paper reviews a number of approaches to considering how policy transfers through advocacy networks, focusing on education issues in general, and market-based policies in particular.

Gupta, Amita – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
In rapidly globalizing systems of schooling around the world, economic considerations have led to a push to impose neoliberal reforms in the field of education. Under this influence early childhood education and teacher education in Asia have increasingly become positioned as regulated markets governed by neoliberal policies, leading to peak…

Octarra, Harla Sara; Hendriati, Agustina – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Early childhood education (ECE) is not new in Indonesia. However, in the past decade, it has received more attention, as shown by the growing number of ECE centres in both urban and rural areas.

Lightfoot-Rueda, Theodora – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
This article looks at the concept of education for human capital from its origins in the US and Britain as part of a neo-colonial effort, to its current role in dominating educational discourse across Asia. It argues that although there is nothing wrong with promoting education for career success, this should not be the only lens through which we…

Lee, I-Fang – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
This article unpacks how neoliberal discourse functions as a dominant but problematic system of reasoning that changes and shifts the ways in which we come to think about early childhood education and care.

Newberry, Jan; Marpinjun, Sri – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Based on research and activism on early childhood education and care in the area of Yogyakarta, Indonesia, we argue that the Indonesian government's focus on early childhood has come at a cost to local women. Community-based early childhood programs are delivered by women whose work is unpaid or underpaid. Although early childhood education in the…

Adriany, Vina – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
For the past 20 years, early childhood education has undergone changes that have resulted from an alteration in Indonesian socio-political situations. One of the changes has resulted in the emergence of the internationalisation of early childhood education in Indonesia. This paper unpacks the complexity of the process. Three teachers from three…
