Ford, Brian – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
This is the second of three articles on "Sources of Authority in Education". All use the work of Amy Gutmann as a heuristic device to describe and explain the prevalence of market-based models of Education Reform in the United States as part of what Pasi Sahlberg terms the Global Education Reform Movement (GERM). This movement is based…

d'Agnese, Vasco – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Over the past decades, a neoliberal shift in educational policies has affected educational purposes and schooling practices worldwide and has reframed all of the features of education.

Reinertsen, Anne B. – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Digitalization of our educational systems is moving faster and deeper into our institutions. I applaud it because it has the potential to save time and effort, allowing me to spend more time on the most important part of my work as a scholar. But I am regularly sick to my stomach about what I applaud, because there is no potential and any news or…

Ergas, Oren – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
This paper locates the main challenge for education in cosmopolitanism within the nature of education when interpreted as a "mind-making process." Based on this interpretation, education is currently a process that shapes non-cosmopolitan minds, for the practices generally associated with it habituate the human mind to see…

Chan, Angel – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
International social unrest in recent years has resulted in many people choosing or being forced to leave their home countries to seek better lives elsewhere, causing drastic demographic shifts.

Alerby, Eva; Arndt, Sonja; Westman, Susanne – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
The aim of this paper is to challenge the physical and conceptual boundaries of educational places and spaces with the use of metaphor: the story of Professor Kirke's magic wardrobe in "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," the first book in The Chronicles of Narnia by CS Lewis (1950). By explicating and theorising the concerns that…

Tarc, Paul – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
The internationalization of education (IE) has accelerated across the past two decades. Although there are now a range of representations and theorizations of IE, they find little connection across domains and levels. Toward bolstering a more coherent field of IE, which translates across distinctive expressions of IE, this paper argues for a…

Yusofi, Mahdy; Zarghami-Hamrah, Saeid; Ghaedy, Yahya; Mahmudnia, Alireza – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
In the present study, we adopt a quasi-transcendental approach in order to deconstruct the teacher-student relationship. According to the results of this study, teacher is the dominant pole and student is the passive one. This relation should be redefined in order to transfer students to the dominant pole. In this improvement process the…

Sojot, Amy N. – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Asking after the self in the process of learning without a definitive endpoint or prescribed path to creating that knowledge presents a way to consider a self that is distinct from assumptions of what constitutes an ideal learner. Thinking of the space and self in motion, rather than as inert and passive, allows the exploration of pedagogical…

Saavedra, Cinthya M.; Pérez, Michelle Salazar – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Global south onto-epistemologies are rarely part of bilingual and early childhood teacher education programs. Most university courses, even those that are critically oriented, remain embedded in global north conceptualizations of theory and practice. In this paper, we offer critical examinations of how global north colonialism and its latest…

Zamojski, Piotr – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
The twofold aim of this paper is to describe the specificity of education in Poland and to explore the potential and the limitations of the concept of cultural codes for investigating this specificity. With reference to Max Weber's methodology of ideal types, and following the inquires of Sowa (2011), Leder (2014) and Hryniewicz (2015), as well as…

Depaepe, Marc; Lembagusala Kikumbi, Annette – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Generally speaking, colonial education in Congo did not engender a very great widening of consciousness among the local population. Mostly, it resulted in inevitable submission through discipline and order. This was particularly the case for girls, for which fewer initiatives were taken than for boys. Moreover, gender stereotypes from the 'mother'…

Guilherme, Alex; Souza de Freitas, Ana Lucia – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
The topic of "happiness education" has received considerable attention in recent years in educational discourse, not just in academia but also in the public sphere. This movement understands that there is a "widespread incidence of psychological harm caused by damage to the child's sense of self-worth" (Smith (2008) "The…

Hildebrand, Carl – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
The UK's 2016 decision to exit the European Union and the discussion surrounding it indicate that public understanding of British identity has important consequences, one way or another. Defining British identity will be an important task in the years to come. The UK government not long ago provided some guidance on the matter of British identity…
