Chang, Benjamin "Benji"; McLaren, Peter – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
From the Americas to Asia, neoliberal policy restructuring continues to present major challenges to educational equity.

Chen, Shanhua – Policy Futures in Education, 2016
Teachers more familiar with students' culture tend to use culturally relevant teaching methods to smooth students' learning.

Snir, Itay; Eylon, Yuval – Policy Futures in Education, 2016
The neo-republican political philosophy (sometimes referred to as civic republicanism) advances the idea of freedom as non-domination, in an attempt to provide democracy with a solid normative foundation upon which concrete principles and institutions can be erected so as to make freedom a reality. However, attempts to develop a republican…

Valeri, Andy – Policy Futures in Education, 2012

Feria-Galicia, Joe – Policy Futures in Education, 2011

Anti-intellectualism and political illiteracy are sweeping across the American media and cultural landscape, giving rise to discourses that are unabashedly nativist, racist, and reactionary. Populist sentiments drive the rabid individualism and anti-government rhetoric of right-wing groups such as the Tea Party movement. Underlying these…

Gur-Ze'ev, Ilan – Policy Futures in Education, 2010
Counter-education that addresses seriously the challenge of loss, exile, and the deceiving "home-returning" projects accepts that no positive Utopia awaits us as "truth", "genuine life", "worthy struggle", "pleasure" or worthy self-annihilation. Loss is not to be recovered or compensated; not for the individual nor for any kind of "we". And yet,…
