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. This social movement was pedagogical because students transformed the city into a classroom to gain control over the production of space. In this vein, the student movement provided a…

An exploration is presented of how education policy and practice may be used to transform society.

Chen, Shanhua – Policy Futures in Education, 2016
Teachers more familiar with students' culture tend to use culturally relevant teaching methods to smooth students' learning. Most pre-service teachers in Taiwan lack sufficient training for multicultural competence to enable them to embrace indigenous students' culture and appropriate teaching approaches. In 2013, the Education Act for Indigenous…

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…

Strom, Katie; Martin, Adrian D. – Policy Futures in Education, 2016
This article examines how one first-year physics teacher translated his inquiry-based, socially just pre-professional learning into classroom practice in his first several months of teaching, using rhizomatics, a non-linear theory of social activity, as a theoretical and methodological frame. This case highlights the complexity of enacting a…

As international standards are continually publicized, countries across the globe have adapted educational policies to meet the demands of the global market, which has led to much emphasis on specific subjects and teaching methods.

Janson, Elizabeth E.; Paraskeva, João M. – Policy Futures in Education, 2015
In this article, we examine how Boaventura de Sousa Santos' "Epistemologies of the South" speaks to a needed dialogue on US educational and curriculum policy in which capitalism and colonialism produce youth and teachers as nonbeings--another insidious form of nonexistence. We analyze (a) the construction of the dichotomy of Western and…

Ghosh, Ratna; Chakravarti, Paromita; Mansi, Kumari – Policy Futures in Education, 2015
While women have made many advances, their inferior status to men continues to be a global phenomenon. At a time of unprecedented economic growth, India is experiencing a dramatic intensification of violence against women and the majority of girls are still not getting equal educational opportunity. In one of the most important steps for the…

Bagley, Carl; Beach, Dennis – Policy Futures in Education, 2015
This paper utilises the analytical concepts developed in the work of Basil Bernstein to reflect on the ways in which discourses such as social justice are especially vulnerable in teacher education in England. In particular, under new-managerial regimes the forms of knowledge which are emphasised and valued focus on the instrumental and…

Cottey, Alan – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
Knowledge here means something similar to but broader than science--it is reliable but not necessarily as systematic or explicit. A cooperative economy is contrasted with the competitive economy that has dominated political thinking almost everywhere for about half a century - the neo-liberal period. It is argued that the neo-liberal ideology and…

Giroux, Henry A. – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
This article examines the so-called new school reform movement led by a host of right-wing ideologues, billionaires, and foundations. It argues that instead of being reformers, the latter are part of a counter-revolution in American education to dismantle public schools not because they are failing but because they are public and make a claim,…

Monzó, Lilia D.; McLaren, Peter – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
The demise of capitalism was theoretically prophesied by Marx who posited that the world would come to such a state of destruction and human suffering that no amount of coercion or concessions would suffice to stop the massive uprisings that would lead us into a new socialist alternative. Although the downfall of world capitalism may seem…

Keller, Deborah Biss; Keller, J. Gregory – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
The current situation in education in the United States of America (USA), with an emphasis on high-stakes testing and privatization, calls for a counter-discourse revealing what is sacrificed by these educational policies and what forms of education are needed to prepare future teachers to engage their students in effecting social justice. We draw…

Reinertsen, Anne Beate; Otterstad, Ann Merete; Ben-Horin, Oded – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
This is a collaborative writing story in which songs and poems invite us into complexities of living the ideals and calling for new ways of making the world visible. I need to show you who I am. You need to show me who you are. They are never completed, always open to self and social reflection, and hopefully capable of pushing boundaries of both…
