Taylor, Becky; Francis, Becky; Craig, Nicole; Archer, Louise; Hodgen, Jeremy; Mazenod, Anna; Tereshchenko, Antonina; Pepper, David – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Research has consistently shown 'ability' grouping (tracking) to be prey to poor practice, and to perpetuate inequity. A feature of these problems is inequitable and inaccurate practice in allocation to groups or 'tracks'. Yet little research has examined whether such practices might be improved. Here, we examine survey and interview findings from…

Wolbert, Lynne S.; De Ruyter, Doret J.; Schinkel, Anders – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
In this article we defend the claim that theory on education for flourishing should also include nonideal theory. We observe that recent theory on education for flourishing takes the ideal of flourishing as a starting and central point of the theory, and should be seen as ideal theory. While this serves a purpose, the practical value of ideal…

Simmons, Robin – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
This paper revisits the liberal studies movement -- an important if under-researched episode in the history of education. It examines the lived experience of a set of former vocational students, the great majority of whom eventually went on to teach in further and higher vocational education. All participants had undertaken a course of liberal…

Hill, Ryan – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The UK Government's PREVENT strategy to counter radicalisation and extremism has been the subject of criticism. Concerns arise over clarity of purpose, clarity of terminology used and potential human rights impacts. Where the policy engages with schools, one human right potentially engaged is the right of parents to transfer their religious…

Rodríguez-Izquierdo, Rosa M.; Darmody, Merike – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Over the last decades, migration across Europe has continued to increase. Consequently, offering educational support for migrant students in the schools of host countries has been an extensively debated issue across Europe and further afield, especially in countries with a history of immigration. However, less is known about how education systems…

Jerome, Lee; Elwick, Alex – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
School responses to the Prevent agenda have tended to focus primarily on 'safeguarding' approaches, which essentially perceive some young people as being 'at risk' and potentially as presenting a risk to others. In this article, we consider evidence from secondary school students who experienced a curriculum project on terrorism, extremism and…

Fisher, Roy – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The evacuation of civilians during Second World War Britain included the relocation not only of school children and teachers but of whole schools and, in some instances, of teacher training colleges. This paper examines the evacuation of Avery Hill College, a leading teacher training college, from London to Huddersfield between 1941 and 1946.…

Aktas, Vezir; Nilsson, Marco; Borell, Klas – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Attacks on academic freedom in Turkey have become increasingly systematic in recent years and thousands of academics have been dismissed. This study reflects on the effects of this worsening repression through interviews with academics in the social sciences, both those dismissed and those still active in their profession. Although the dismissed…

Tsang, Kwok Kuen – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
This study argues that teachers are disempowered and demoralised moral agents. Specifically, it uses a qualitative study of Hong Kong teachers to show that teachers' agency in the pursuit of the moral goal of education is socially disempowered. The study shows that although teachers are committed to the moral goal of education, the obstacles to…

Tan, Charlene – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
This article analyses an assessment initiative known as the Basic Competency Assessment (BCA) in Hong Kong using Bernstein's performance and competence models of pedagogic practice. On the one hand, BCA is aligned with a competence model through its official projection as a low-stakes, student-focussed and formative assessment. However, an…

White, John – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
Until recently teacher education in England has always contained a 'philosophical' element -- to do with what education is for in the light of human nature. The paper traces its history since 1839, through inspirational approaches -- based first on religion and later on psychology -- to the critical approach of R S Peters and his colleagues in the…

Estrela, Elsa – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
In the study of the construction of curricular knowledge in Portugal between 1970 and 2009, we argue that the practice of the established curriculum guidelines has a close relationship with the personal dimension of its actors. Therefore, it is not possible to separate the life history of each actor from the curricular policy measures they…

Hartley, David – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
By the year 2000, the management of education in England had lost much of its capacity to ensure the commitment of headteachers and teachers. As market forces engendered competition among schools, the bureaucratic monitoring of schools by agencies of government increased on the grounds that objective and comparable data about schools should be…

West, Anne; Noden, Philip – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The public funding of early years education and care in England has been transformed. Historically, local councils had the main responsibility for decisions regarding nursery education and child day care, but in 1996 the Conservative government introduced a nursery education voucher scheme. Parents of four-year-olds could exchange the voucher for…

Williams, Kevin – British Journal of Educational Studies, 2019
The focus of the article is on the different strands that shaped Seamus Heaney's sensibility. The first section examines the role played by the home and local community and the second explores the contribution of school and university. One of the most significant sources of his upbringing was the experience of living in a divided society. His…
