Black, Paul – European Journal of Education, 2018
The main aim of this article is to argue that the need for teachers and their schools to prepare their students for life beyond their school-days must be met by requiring teachers themselves to both achieve this aim and produce the evidence of their students' capability as learners. In so doing, they must change their classroom teaching from a…

This article provides a literature review on the effects of the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) on education governance and policy process across participating countries.

Tiana Ferrer, Alejandro – European Journal of Education, 2017

Bialecki, Ireneusz; Jakubowski, Maciej; Wisniewski, Jerzy – European Journal of Education, 2017
The impact of the PISA study on Polish education policy has been significant, but probably different from any other country. Poland has not experienced the so-called "PISA shock," but its education system has been benefiting considerably from PISA. For experts and policy makers, it has been a useful and reliable instrument that has made…

As the field of education has become a highly internationalised policy field in the last decade, international organisations such as the OECD play an ever more decisive role in the dissemination of knowledge, monitoring of outcomes, and research in education policy.

Wiborg, Susanne; Larsen, Kristina R. – European Journal of Education, 2017
