Frindte, Annegret; Mierendorff, Johanna – Journal of Pedagogy, 2017
In German there is a long tradition of institutionalized daycare center-based early education. These institutions are concerned with "Bildung, Erziehung und Betreuung"--the education and care of children up to six years of age. Education and childrearing as well as care are all important but separate processes in German early childhood…

Moss, Peter – Journal of Pedagogy, 2017
The field of early childhood education is increasingly dominated by a strongly positivistic and regulatory discourse, the story of quality and high returns, which has spread from its local origins in the favourable environment provided by a global regime of neoliberalism. But though dominant, this is not the only discourse in early childhood…

Rudolph, Norma – Journal of Pedagogy, 2017
Policy for young children in South Africa is now receiving high-level government support through the ANC's renewed commitment to redress poverty and inequity and creating "a better life for all" as promised before the 1994 election.

In the last decade, Chile has focused on early childhood education and care (ECEC) as a key opportunity to increase student-learning outcomes and decrease socio-economic inequalities. The creation of Chile's Under-Secretariat of ECEC in 2015 highlights the relevance of this educational stage. The purpose of this study is to analyse the new law…

Andrade-Molina, Melissa – Journal of Pedagogy, 2017
This article addresses access to high-quality education under a neoliberal mentality. It engages at both the discursive and material levels, by mapping how taken-for-granted truths about neoliberal policies circulate through the media. The media--newspapers, network channels, and news websites--have correlated quality education with socioeconomic…

Danišková, Zuzana; Lukšík, Ivan – Journal of Pedagogy, 2017
A number of studies have pointed to the low level of civic participation among young people. On the other hand, there is a section of the youth population that is politically involved in and supportive of extremist and anti-system political movements. Public discussions have suggested that this may be linked to inadequacies in citizenship…

Benincasa, Luciana – Journal of Pedagogy, 2017
The paper applies Goffman's frame analysis and ethnomethodology to student performance on mathematical word problems. In educational research, frame analysis has usually been limited to primary frames. Instead, in this paper I focus on the kind of secondary frame that Goffman calls 'utilitarian make-believe'. The data consist of a fragment of…

Berniz, Kate; Miller, Andrew – Journal of Pedagogy, 2017
Students in Western university contexts require multiple literacies, numeracies, and critical capacities to succeed. Participation requires a blend of English language capacity, cultural knowhow, and cognisance of the often-hidden racialized assumptions and dispositions underpinning literate performance. Students from Culturally and Linguistically…

Urban, Mathias – Journal of Pedagogy, 2016
In this paper I reflect on the dilemma critical early childhood research finds itself in today. In order to distinguish and distance ourselves from the certainties and seemingly unquestionable truths of post-political, mainstream, "normalised" research and its entanglement with neoliberal agendas and corporate interests, have we rendered…

O'Loughlin, Michael – Journal of Pedagogy, 2016
In this essay I pose the question of whether it might be possible to articulate a collaborative, critical narrative mode of research in which teachers and students come together using a critical and analytic epistemology to engage in adventurous pedagogy. This approach has echoes of Freire's "teachers-as-students and…
