Cole, Rose M.; Heinecke, Walter F. – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Contemporary college student activism has been particularly visible and effective in the past few years at US institutions of higher education and is projected only to grow in future years. Almost all of these protests and demands, while explicitly linked to social and racial justice, are sites of resistance to the neoliberalization of the…

Barton, Colin C. – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
In the post-truth era, information is harder to trust than ever before. News has become more about entertainment than information and consumers now subscribe to media in order to have their view reinforced and not challenged. The media environment has become more tribal, defining the people who consume it. On top of this environment, the plague…

Lopes, Alice Casimiro; Costa, Hugo Heleno Camilo – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
In this article, we aim to theorize about the understanding of a school subject community in a discursive framework, particularly concerned with the theoretical and strategic possibilities of this notion in the research of curriculum policy. In these times, in which the death of the centered, conscious and cohesive Subject is assumed, what…

Stuart, Margaret – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
Using Michel Foucault's theories of biopolitics, about risk and security, I examine the welfare policies of the National Coalition Government in New Zealand (2008-2017). This government attempted to mitigate risk by projecting possible challenges and solutions to 'vulnerable populations'. Welfare was re-defined in monetarist economic terms, as…

Wearne, Eric – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
American education policy at the elite level has coalesced around a consensus valuing "college and career readiness" as the primary metric and value for American schools. This "readiness" is often defined by economic outcomes or by standardized test measures (which serve as predictors for economic outcomes). Policy actors at…

Middleton, Sue – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
The "spatial turn" in education policy studies fuelled interest in Lefebvre's work: initially, in his work "Production of Space" and, more recently, "Rhythmanalysis" and "Right to the City". Yet, although in these texts Lefebvre critiques universities and schools and introduces original pedagogical concepts,…

Boxley, Simon – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
In Peter McLaren's words "We need a philosophically grounded alternative to capitalism", but what does such a philosophical grounding look like? Need it be shared? The philosophical basis for practice was not shared by Lenin and Bogdanov, for example, and yet both retained the ability to work together in the Bolshevik party. There's a…

Maisuria, Alpesh; Cole, Mike – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
In this article, we provide a critical explanation and critique of neoliberalism. We attempt an innovative focus ranging from the wider contemporary political and ideological shifts, to the way in which neoliberal policy specifically influences higher education and the consequences thereof. We follow a narrative logic in three parts where we first…

Baldacchino, John – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
This is an article review of Peter McLaren's "Pedagogy of Insurrection" (New York: Peter Lang, 2015). While it seeks to position McLaren's work within the context of critical pedagogy, this paper also assesses McLaren from the wider discussion of Marxist--Hegelian discourse as it evolved within the Left. Engaging with McLaren critically,…
