Skovlund, Henrik – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Children with psychiatric diagnoses such as attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder/attention-deficit disorder and autism spectrum disorder have often been the topic of heated debate between those who favour the view that the global increase in children who receive these diagnoses is the result of pathologizing and stigmatizing discourses and…

Wareham, Ruth J. – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
In this article, I illuminate ongoing debates about the normative status of indoctrination via close examination of recent work in the philosophy of psychiatry and, more particularly, delusion. Here it has been argued, contrary to the established view that delusional states of mind are epistemically problematic, that delusions can (at least under…

Goodman, Joan F.; Cook, Britiny Iris – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Children in schools are often shamed, at times intentionally, sometimes inadvertently. The question we pose is whether this practice violates their fundamental human rights, in particular that of freedom. Arguably, because of their limited capacities and dependent status what children require is protection rather than rights. Yet, children are not…

Easton, Christina Elizabeth – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
This article is a reply to Matthew Clayton and David Stephens's 2018 article 'What is the point of religious education?' (see EJ1173708). I begin by problematising the 'acceptability requirement' used to justify the authors' conclusions. I then disambiguate the key claim made in the article. If interpreted broadly, as an attack on curricula that…

Jones, Todd – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Teachers of literature often have students read works of fiction to learn important truths about the world. But, it is not clear how looking at a work of fiction can tell us about the actual world. This article examines whether and how this can be done.

Shapiro, Lawrence; Stolz, Steven A. – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Psychology has made, and continues to make, a significant contribution to the discipline area of education. Since one of the main aims of education concerns student learning -- which is an indisputably psychological phenomenon -- we argue that the emerging research agenda of embodied cognition has much to offer educational practitioners,…

Siegel, Harvey – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Is good reasoning in the moral domain different from its counterpart in non-moral domains? What counts as a good moral argument, or a valid moral assertion or claim? What does 'validity' mean in the moral realm? Lots of ink has been spilled on these and related questions in the past few decades, but not much has been settled. In what follows I…

Tomlinson, Michael; Kelly, Paul – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Assessing the value of HE has now become embroiled in discussions of its functions and outputs in the context of increased marketisation. Much of this is based on a fairly crude value framing concerning the economic impact, return value and, measured performance, derived from HE. This article explores the concept of value associated with the work…

Hand, Michael – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
John White and John Tillson have both raised objections to the theory of moral education I have recently advanced. Here I reply to their objections and offer some critical remarks on the alternative accounts of moral education they propose.

Merry, Michael S.; Arum, Richard – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Selection within the educational domain breeds a special kind of suspicion. Whether it is the absence of transparency in the selection procedure, the observable outcomes of the selection, or the criteria of selection itself, there is much to corroborate the suspicion many have that selection in practice is unfair. And certainly as it concerns…

Reidenberg, Joel R.; Schaub, Florian – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Education, Big Data, and student privacy are a combustible mix. The improvement of education and the protection of student privacy are key societal values. Big Data and Learning Analytics offer the promise of unlocking insights to improving education through large-scale empirical analysis of data generated from student information and student…

Zeide, Elana; Nissenbaum, Helen – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
The current debate about student privacy issues raised by education technology focuses on how schools information with private vendors. It neglects a related but different trend, namely, the rise of online learning platforms offering learning experiences and credentials directly to users. These Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) and Virtual…

MacMullen, Ian – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Some people claim that religious schools are poorly suited to prepare children for citizenship in a multi-religious society that is (or aspires to be) a liberal democracy. In what sense(s), by what mechanism(s), and to what extent might this be so? And what could be the implications for public policy? I propose an analytical and evaluative…

Merry, Michael S. – Theory and Research in Education, 2018
Many philosophers argue that religious schools are guilty of indoctrinatory harm. I think they are right to be worried about that. But in this article, I will postulate that there are other harms for many individuals that are more severe outside the religious school. Accordingly the full scope of harm should be taken into account when evaluating…
