Barton, Colin C. – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
In the post-truth era, information is harder to trust than ever before.

Rodgers Gibson, Morgan – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
Neoliberalism is often understood as being both an epoch of capitalism and a zealous ideological commitment to the primacy of private property and free markets.

Tomicic, Ana – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
While universities now lie between two philosophical poles -- idealism and utilitarianism -- the Humboldtian ideal primarily serves to give a humanist glaze to a technocratic discourse. Regardless of its autonomy on paper, the University does not control its finances. This guise of autonomy has set a double authoritarian heteronomy of the…

Bruckner, Heide K.; Kowasch, Matthias – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
This article critiques the way the topic of meat and its consumption is addressed in geography education within the remit of education for sustainable development (ESD).

Transitioning towards a plant-based diet is considered both ethical and environmentally friendly from a Western perspective of high per capita consumption of flesh foods. However, in contemporary India, beef-eating has emerged as a political act of subversion in the context of its current ban by the Indian state which is transforming…

Jones, Naya – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
Young people who navigate intersecting racial, ethnic, economic, and/or geographic oppressions are often the objects of food pedagogy.

This article analyses these techniques,…

Kiddle, Rebecca; Mawer, Chantal; McAuliffe Bickerton, Ceara; Ryan, Alyssa; Siemonek, Laurette – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
Many environmental concerns such as climate change and reducing fossil-fuel dependence seem 'out of reach' for the majority of us regarding creating change.
