Scharf, Jan; Hadjar, Andreas; Grecu, Alyssa – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Many approaches to explaining educational inequalities relate explicitly and implicitly to benefits of education, and rational choice theories in particular consider monetary benefits.

McDonald, Paula; Pini, Barbara; Bartlett, Jennifer – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
The marketisation of schools has emerged as a defining feature of the education landscape. While the role of principals and lead teachers in carrying out marketing work was investigated in the late 1990s, there has been scant evidence of how the people and practices of marketing in schools have evolved into the twenty-first century. Expanding on…

Sellers, Chelsea – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
The benefits of reading for pleasure and positive reader identities have been well established in previous research. However, much discussion regarding young people's reading is underpinned by a discourse of deficit, placing emphasis on what young people should be reading. In an attempt to move away from this discourse, this article considers…

Samson, Maxim G. M. – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Faith schools may play an important role in reproducing ethnoreligious identities, yet research into Jewish schools has tended to overlook students' personalised conceptualisations of faith. Instead, it has regularly utilised restrictive 'indicators' of ethnoreligious practice in order to gauge these institutions' effectiveness in 'strengthening'…

Nairz-Wirth, Erna; Feldmann, Klaus – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
While various forms of teachers' habitus have been described in education studies, little consideration has so far been given to their interaction with fields in schools.

A governmentality ethnographic approach is adopted to examine the everyday making of school in Buenos Aires slums. By addressing events at the intersection of the life of school and of the neighborhood, in this article we problematize schooling -- how it is put together and the tensions that beset it on a daily basis. The notion of the self-made…

Inzunza, Jorge; Assael, Jenny; Cornejo, Rodrigo; Redondo, Jesus – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Chile is recognized in the educational policy field as one of the first laboratories of neoliberal initiatives. These policies, initiated under the dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, did not change with the new democratic governments after 1990.

Pun, Ngai; Koo, Anita – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
Situating in the different social, political and cultural contexts of schooling in China, which is more embedded in mixed neoliberal value, authoritarian state control and collective morality, we use a somewhat different theoretical angle to understand the process of 'learning to labour' and the reproduction of working class at school and at work.…
