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.

Grinberg, Silvia – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
A governmentality ethnographic approach is adopted to examine the everyday making of school in Buenos Aires slums.

Pratt, Nick; Alderton, Julie – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This article considers a recent policy initiative in assessment in English primary schools (ages 5-11 years) in which curriculum 'levels' used by teachers to judge pupils' attainment were suddenly removed.

Variyan, George – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2019
This article is based on a multi-site study of teachers in elite private schools in Australia. Teachers' accounts from this study bring nuance to the reasons one might short-handedly expect they have in working for these exclusive institutions. It is not that everyday motivations don't matter, for example, the financial compensations, the…

Hewson, Dominic – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2018
It is 30 years since Vietnam implemented the 'Doi Moi' economic reforms.

The 'Trojan Horse' affair, as it become known, began with an anonymised letter that claimed hard-line 'Islamists' were plotting and planning to take over a number of schools in Birmingham. Amongst the…
