This article investigates what is claimed to be a shift towards national and European education systems based on Learning Outcomes (LO). We propose to delineate LO into three instruments (pedagogical, policy and organisational). When LO are related to a pedagogical debate, they can easily be positioned to constructivist learning theories in which…

On the contrary: old hierarchies were to be fought and new ones were to be established--both according to the Nazi administration's social ideology and,…

In these times, in which the death of the centered, conscious and cohesive Subject is assumed, what…

Skerritt, Craig – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
A post-structural approach to exploring identity is taken in this paper in that identity is considered here as being socially constructed through discourse, which has deep implications for the shaping of subjectivity and practice. Given both the potential academisation and Anglicisation of Irish schools, and the additional re-drawing of what…

Boxley, Simon – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
When we "learn nature," do we encounter her as 'free' in the sense of having neither cost nor price? Is she something 'given'? And is that which nature offers us 'gratis'? In the UK, many schoolchildren have been encouraged to 'give thanks' for nature's gifts. But why, if she is free, give thanks; and thanks to whom? If one learns to…

Bingham, Andrea J.; Burch, Patricia – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
For years, policy implementation scholars have recognized the trend of school improvement policies converging on public schools in such a way that these policies create a paradox -- policies aimed at school improvement have often been represented as in such a state of incoherence, that they have been unmanageable. This convergence of reforms asks…
