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…

Barton, Colin C. – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
In the post-truth era, information is harder to trust than ever before. News has become more about entertainment than information and consumers now subscribe to media in order to have their view reinforced and not challenged. The media environment has become more tribal, defining the people who consume it. On top of this environment, the plague…

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Belarus began to develop a national system of education trying to balance the prioritization of Soviet legacy, strong state control, and processes of democratization.

Wubbena, Zane – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
The 2011 Chilean student protests were a powerful social movement aimed at transforming education and, with it, the social spaces and formations of daily life.

Warren, Simon – Policy Futures in Education, 2016
In this article I ask myself the following question: Rather than try to escape the seemingly awful choice "between" the private and the public, "between" the particular and universal, or "between" justice and freedom, I ask if I simply have the option to enact democracy and see "what follows?" To reach that…

However, attempts to develop a republican…
