Bauman, Zygmunt – Policy Futures in Education, 2010
Today's culture consists of offerings, not norms. Liquid-modern culture, unlike the culture of the nation-building era, has no "people" to "cultivate." The solid-modern policy of dealing with difference, the policy of assimilation to the dominant culture and stripping the strangers of their strangehood, is no longer feasible.…

Miller, Paul Washington – Policy Futures in Education, 2008
Overseas trained teachers (OTTs) have become an important part of the make-up of England's primary and secondary education system. Through inadequate, and in some cases a lack of, initial induction and support for professional development, many are at risk of performing sub-optimally and some have become an endangered species. Failure to integrate…

Clarke, John – Policy Futures in Education, 2007
This article addresses the question: what is not neoliberal? It explores the problem of treating neoliberalism's universalising ambitions as having come true in practice and argues that this obscures both the uneven and partial impact of neoliberalism and the forms of political cultural work that are needed to make it come true. Focusing on one…

MacDonald, Gerard – Policy Futures in Education, 2005
English schools have always been involved with the economy of their time, but it was not until the mid-nineteenth century that schooling for the poor became primarily an adjunct of industry, rather than of the Church. This industrial style of education, preparation for the production line, still informs the school system, though Britain is no…
