Tarc, Paul – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
The internationalization of education (IE) has accelerated across the past two decades. Although there are now a range of representations and theorizations of IE, they find little connection across domains and levels. Toward bolstering a more coherent field of IE, which translates across distinctive expressions of IE, this paper argues for a…

Yusofi, Mahdy; Zarghami-Hamrah, Saeid; Ghaedy, Yahya; Mahmudnia, Alireza – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
In the present study, we adopt a quasi-transcendental approach in order to deconstruct the teacher-student relationship. According to the results of this study, teacher is the dominant pole and student is the passive one. This relation should be redefined in order to transfer students to the dominant pole. In this improvement process the…

Sojot, Amy N. – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Asking after the self in the process of learning without a definitive endpoint or prescribed path to creating that knowledge presents a way to consider a self that is distinct from assumptions of what constitutes an ideal learner. Thinking of the space and self in motion, rather than as inert and passive, allows the exploration of pedagogical…

Saavedra, Cinthya M.; Pérez, Michelle Salazar – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Global south onto-epistemologies are rarely part of bilingual and early childhood teacher education programs. Most university courses, even those that are critically oriented, remain embedded in global north conceptualizations of theory and practice. In this paper, we offer critical examinations of how global north colonialism and its latest…

Depaepe, Marc; Lembagusala Kikumbi, Annette – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
Generally speaking, colonial education in Congo did not engender a very great widening of consciousness among the local population. Mostly, it resulted in inevitable submission through discipline and order. This was particularly the case for girls, for which fewer initiatives were taken than for boys. Moreover, gender stereotypes from the 'mother'…

The topic of "happiness education" has received considerable attention in recent years in educational discourse, not just in academia but also in the public sphere.

Hildebrand, Carl – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
The UK's 2016 decision to exit the European Union and the discussion surrounding it indicate that public understanding of British identity has important consequences, one way or another. Defining British identity will be an important task in the years to come. The UK government not long ago provided some guidance on the matter of British identity…

Middleton, Sue – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
The "spatial turn" in education policy studies fuelled interest in Lefebvre's work: initially, in his work "Production of Space" and, more recently, "Rhythmanalysis" and "Right to the City". Yet, although in these texts Lefebvre critiques universities and schools and introduces original pedagogical concepts,…

Baldacchino, John – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
This is an article review of Peter McLaren's "Pedagogy of Insurrection" (New York: Peter Lang, 2015). While it seeks to position McLaren's work within the context of critical pedagogy, this paper also assesses McLaren from the wider discussion of Marxist--Hegelian discourse as it evolved within the Left. Engaging with McLaren critically,…
