Bacon, Jessica K.; Lalvani, Priya – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
Dominant stories, as upheld through K-12 curricula, are influential in reproducing systems of power and privilege in schools and society. In this article, we suggest that stories of people with disabilities are either missing in K-12 curricula, or told in ways that are highly ableist. We use discourse theory as a frame for considering the role of…

Naraian, Srikala – Curriculum Inquiry, 2019
As the effects of high-stakes accountability mandates increasingly impact curricular enactments in schools, careful investigations of the "how" of inclusion may allow the disclosure of its complexity to stretch the ways in which it is currently theorized. Drawing on my prior research, I have extracted three canonical elements of…

Kirchgasler, Kathryn L. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2018
This article examines how notions of health and citizenship have become entangled in US science education reforms targeting particular populations.

Lim, Leonel; Tan, Michael – Curriculum Inquiry, 2018
Drawing upon insights gained from the extant work on culture and pedagogy, this paper explores the ways in which, in an ostensibly meritocratic education system, ideas about students' cultural backgrounds and its relevance for teaching are interpreted, negotiated, and ultimately drawn upon to engage students in the low-progress academic tracks.…

Schmeichel, Mardi; Sharma, Ajay; Pittard, Elizabeth – Curriculum Inquiry, 2017
Neoliberalism has an enormous influence on P-12 education in most industrial societies.

Ladwig, James G.; McPherson, Amy – Curriculum Inquiry, 2017
"Ability" is one of the most common concepts underpinning education. Generally, "ability" is central to notions of a meritocratic society. More specifically, schools are allocated the right to define, categorise and label students according to their ability. While there has been ample discussion of the role of ability in the…

Hochman, Jessica – Curriculum Inquiry, 2016
This paper explores nostalgia as both a limiting cultural force in the lives of school librarians and a practice that can be used to more accurately portray library work. The stereotype of the shushing, lone school librarian, based on restorative nostalgia, is related to a nostalgic oversimplification of the school librarian's historical role.…

Gacoin, Andrée E. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2016
Sexuality education as an HIV prevention strategy is positioned as a way to empower youth in relation to their sexual identities and behaviours. While the youth subject is recognized as complex, the underlying premise is that identity can be targeted "through" sexuality education. In this paper, I present data from an ethnographic…

Mulcahy, D. G. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2009
Liberal education has long been a fascination for scholars and educators. At one time largely the concern of colleges and universities, over the years it has become central to the discussion of general education in both schools and colleges. Yet it has not been without its critics even from within. In asking what it means to be an educated person…

Helsing, Deborah – Curriculum Inquiry, 2007
This article addresses a key contrast in how teachers may regard the uncertainties of their work, considering how an orientation to uncertainty can be regarded as a decision-making style. Through the use of case studies, the author contrasts two teachers. One is oriented "toward" uncertainties in her work and describes her herself as being always…

Parkes, Robert J. – Curriculum Inquiry, 2007
This article is concerned with theorizing a curricular response to what has become known in Australia as the "history wars" (Macintyre & Clark, 2003). The central debate in the history wars is over the representation of the colonization of Australia. Because History curriculum serves as an apparatus for the social (re)production of…

The aim of this article is to explore, through the case of the official Israeli state curriculum, how the educational system is affected by social changes and how it responds to them, and to suggest curricular directions that go along with the new social reality that has emerged in Israel during the past decade. We offer a conceptual-theoretical…

Pinson, Halleli – Curriculum Inquiry, 2007
Against the backdrop of growing conflicts in Israeli society and concerns about its democratic character, the current curriculum guidelines and official textbook for civic education in Israel were set to offer a more inclusive civic education that would stress ideas such as pluralistic and democratic citizenship. However, this curriculum does not…
