This essay demonstrates how Deleuze and Guattari's notion of 'microfascism' is of crucial importance to understanding the complexities of contemporary pedagogical efforts to combat populism, right-wing extremism, and fascism.

Parra, Saro Lozano; Bakker, Cok; van Liere, Lucien – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
Research shows that teachers and educators struggle to act when conflict appears in the classroom. This article argues that (political) conflict should not be avoided or eradicated. Teachers should enable conflict and attend to their pupils in the process, in order to enable further understanding of each other and their differences, as part of…

Wheelahan, Leesa; Moodie, Gavin – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
This paper critiques the emergence of micro-credentials in higher education. It argues that micro-credentials build on the discourse of employability skills and 21st century skills within human capital theory, and that they increase the potential of human capital theory to 'discipline' the HE curriculum to align it more closely with putative…

Deng, Zongyi – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
This article addresses how 'powerful' curriculum theory might be constructed from the perspective of the German "Didaktik" tradition--highly compatible with Schwab's the Practical. To start with, I scrutinize Joseph Schwab's model of curriculum planning and Wolfgang Klafki's model of lesson preparation and examine two theories of content…

We set out to address the question--what does it mean for educational knowledge to be 'powerful'?

Dyches, Jeanne; Boyd, Ashley S.; Schulz, Jessica M. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2021
Manifest in research, national policy, and instructional standards, the United States has a long-documented interest in teachers as 'content experts.'
