Hodgson, David – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
A governmental research inquiry was conducted into the policy to raise the school leaving age in Western Australia.

Haugen, Cecilie Rønning – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Internationally, the autonomy of schools and teachers is under pressure. In Norway, recent policies emphasise output control through national testing, combined with holding schools and teachers accountable for students' results. Whereas recent research documents that the autonomy of schools and teachers is weakening in Oslo, there is little…

Haggerty, Maggie; Loveridge, Judith – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Recent education policy analysis has revealed the standardisation of education systems and an intensified focus on learners and learning to meet the requirements of the global economy and neo-liberalism.

Evans, Ceryn; Rees, Gareth; Taylor, Chris; Wright, Caroline – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Patterns of participation in higher education (HE) in the UK, as elsewhere, have been marked by social inequalities for decades. UK Governments have responded with a plethora of policies and agendas aimed at addressing this broad social issue. However, little is known about how higher education institutions (HEIs) interpret and 'enact' these…

Keddie, Amanda – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
There is little conclusive evidence linking academies reform in England with school improvement. While this reform has been effective in improving educational outcomes in some contexts, it has been resoundingly unsuccessful in others. Nevertheless, political faith in autonomous schooling as key to a world-class education remains strong. This paper…

Aikens, Kathleen; Hargis, Kristen – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
In light of multiple, dispersed forms of online civic participation, we must reconceptualize how public intervention into policy production and enactment takes place. This study examines a case of academic and operational restructuring termed 'TransformUS' that took place at a Canadian university in Saskatchewan from 2013 to 2014. Our analysis…

Dobbins, Michael; Christ, Claudia – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
This article focusses on the evolution of the school governance model in Spain since the 1980s. In Spain and elsewhere in Europe, the state's monopoly over education has softened and new forms of educational governance have emerged. This has resulted in the decentralization of decision-making authority to individual schools, municipalities, and…

Walton, Grant W. – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Policies aimed at both reducing the costs associated with schooling (particularly through fee-free education) and decentralising responsibility for education delivery have become a central part of international education doctrine. This article draws on the 'politics of scale' literature to highlight how these education reforms are contested at…

Powell, Darren – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
In contemporary times, corporate philanthropy is positioned as an effective means to 'solve' a variety of social problems. Childhood obesity is one such 'problem' that has captured the interests of schools, corporations, industry groups and a number of 'not-for-profit' players. In this paper, I critically examine how the private sector uses the…

Katzir, Shai; Perry-Hazan, Lotem – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
The study explored how a group of private Haredi (ultra-Orthodox Jewish) schools legitimized an innovative non-mandatory reform. Specifically, it examined the circumstances that facilitated and hindered a "coincidence of wants" between the schools and the Ministry of Education, which resulted in signing agreements that changed the status…

Brown, Ceri; Carr, Sam – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Educationalists have been concerned with the labelling and treatment of children with mental health difficulties in the education system in England for some time. These concerns have centred on the role of policy in 'othering' such students as deviant learners. The unprecedented number of children suffering from mental illnesses, has forced…

Han, Xiao – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Bourdieu's concept of field offers an alternative explanation for the inevitable gap between policy initiative and implementation. While the existing literature mostly concentrated on the dichotomy of macro- and micro-politics in enacting education policies, the missing attention to meso-level, local governments as policy interpreters and…

Takayama, Keita; Lingard, Bob – Journal of Education Policy, 2019
Juxtaposed with the emerging body of literature about datafication in schooling, this paper examines the increasing encroachment of data into the Japanese education system, in particular, the use of data associated with standardised academic assessments for governance purposes. In so doing, we use the Japanese 'case' to expose the possible limits…
