Kingston, Shauna – Power and Education, 2021
The Ontario Ministry of Education (2010) puts forth parent involvement as a solution for underachievement and as a resource for building better schools. A Foucauldian discourse analysis of school newsletters reveals that efforts to engage parents also function as a neoliberal strategy designed to govern parents. Using Foucault's theory of…

Thompson, Kali; Jones, Stephanie – Power and Education, 2021
A teacher's ability to feel successful--some might even say good--in today's education system relies on a particular conception of academic success. We argue neoliberalism, as it operates in education, is a normalized trauma enfolded in the individual and collective bodies of women teachers producing overwhelming feelings of never being good…

Ba', Stefano – Power and Education, 2021
The 'New Paradigm' of Sociology of Childhood famously maintains that childhood is socially constructed and supposedly places a much greater emphasis on the agency of children: children should not simply be framed as the passive receivers of socialisation. The aim of this article is to demonstrate that such a 'social construction' of childhood is…

Mäkelä, Kalle; Mertanen, Katariina; Brunila, Kristiina – Power and Education, 2021
There is general agreement overall about the desirability and importance of youth support systems as being crucial for young people 'at risk' to help them cultivate their subjectivities about employability.

The present article focuses on teaching and learning about the Holocaust in Sweden, conducted as study trips to Holocaust memorial sites.

Bierdz, Brad – Power and Education, 2021

Welsh, John – Power and Education, 2021
The bulk of research on academic rankings is policy-oriented, preoccupied with 'best practices', and seems incapable of transcending the normative discourse of 'governance'. To understand, engage, and properly critique the operation of power in academic rankings, the rankings discourse needs to escape the gravity of 'police science' and embrace a…

Less attention has been paid to the sub-group of students with limited experience of schooling, referred to here as 'newly arrived students with limited schooling' (NALS).

Walton, Sean – Power and Education, 2021
The critical race theory concept of 'White supremacy' continues to be a major locus of disagreement between Critical Race Theorists and Marxists regarding both how it operates as a general descriptor of racial power dynamics in the Western world and for its explanatory power in accounting for the multiple forms in which racism manifests.…

As part of the general curricular ambitions of contributing to the development of a democratic society, Swedish schools are mandated to actively combat racism and extremism. This causes particular challenges when teachers encounter students who have been brought up in environments where racist and extremist worldviews dominate. This study analyses…

On 1 February 2021, a junta launched a coup against the civilian government in Myanmar, causing strong backlash against the coup among civilians and leading the junta to suppress those who protested in an extremely aggressive way.

Lebossé, Clémence; Érard, Carine; Vivier, Christian – Power and Education, 2021
In a society where the politics of life is geared toward maximizing the physical and psychological dimensions of human capital to ensure economic growth, France's Inspectorate for Youth and Sports played a key role in disseminating a new mode of governance of bodies and youth--a form of self-governance based on the rising neoliberal values that…

Access to higher education is a global concern due to its dual role in transforming individual lives and value for global economic systems.

Drawing upon a study that examined policy and practice relating to access…

Clarke, Matthew; Haines Lyon, Charlotte; Walker, Emma; Walz, Linda; Collet-Sabé, Jordi; Pritchard, Kate – Power and Education, 2021
Education is usually considered a force for good, associated with hope and optimism about better individual and social futures. Yet a case can be made that education and education policy in recent decades, far from being a force for good, has had nefarious effects at multiple levels. This can be seen in the growing alienation of significant…
