Panjwani, Farid – Oxford Review of Education, 2017
It is widely accepted in academia and state policies that recent years have seen an increasing stress on publicly enacted Muslim identity in Britain and in many other parts of the world.

Wesselhoeft, Kirsten – Oxford Review of Education, 2017
This paper examines the role of the French state school classroom as a scene of moral pedagogy from the point of view of the French state and Muslim community activists. I argue that in both sets of discourses, the state school classroom is consistently figured as the front lines of a battleground, in which teachers, students, and parents are all…

It expands notions of post occupancy evaluation (POE) research by exploring how the…

Cain, Tim; Allan, David – Oxford Review of Education, 2017
Although there are policy calls for educational research to discover "what works" and thereby inform decision making directly, the research literature argues instead for research to have a "conceptual" impact on practice. Empirical studies also suggest that, when teachers use research, their use is conceptual; research…

Jones, Karen L.; Tymms, Peter; Kemethofer, David; O'Hara, Joe; McNamara, Gerry; Huber, Stephan; Myrberg, Eva; Skedsmo, Guri; Greger, David – Oxford Review of Education, 2017
It has been widely documented that accountability systems, including school inspections, bring with them unintended side effects.

This…
