Call for papers: Managing the gap - policy and practice of parents in child care and education

During the last two decades we have seen changes in education policy and practice that have reshaped the relationship between parents, preschool and school in the Nordic countries. On the policy level schools/educational institutions are obliged to cooperate with parents and previous research shows that the cooperation is beneficial for the child. While cooperation between parents preschools and schools has been defined as a good thing this area has not been prioritised in educational research. We know little about how the cooperation is carried out in practice. Moreover, in some countries marketization and privatisation of child care and education have together with school choice policies turned parents into consumers of childcare and education in ways that have had impact on the educational landscapes in the Nordic countries. At the same time state policy and practice in child care and education strive to regulate forms and content of child socialisation to promote equality and social justice in line with democratic norms and values. These on-going changes in the policy and practice of child care and education make relevant a managing of a gap between the family and other societal institution engaged in child socialisation. What this gap is about and how to bridge it are questions that need to be addressed by education research in order to shed more light on a relationship that constitutes the very foundation of cultural reproduction within and between nation states.

Call for papers: Local and regional school history

 

Call for papers: Local and regional school history

We invite contributions to a special issue on "Local and regional school history". This special issue aims to emphasize the importance of historical studies of local activities in schools and in local or regional school policy, in order to understand and explain national and international trends and reforms in education. There is a substantial variation in how different local actors, communities and regions have handled national school policy, and furthermore there is a variation in how different countries have taken local variation into account, when executing a national school policy. We invite contributions which empirically and/or theoretically illustrate and investigate local and regional school history in relation to national reform aspirations and effects during the 19th or 20th century.

Call for papers: Life and Work in Academia

 

Call for Papers: Life and Work in Academia

The Nordic Journal of Studies in Educational Policy is currently inviting submissions for a special issue entitled Life and Work in Academia.

With massification, marketization and managerialism, higher education institutions face new situations that challenge academic work and our understanding of it. Even though research on academic work has increased it is still rather restricted. With this special issue our aim is to promote the development and dissemination of knowledge on academic citizenship and academic work.

We welcome empirical and theoretical contributions from higher education researchers and scholars from other fields of inquiry with higher education as their object of study. The aim is to explore academic citizenship and academic work through analyses of duties and activities performed by academics as expressed in policy and/or practice. Read more.
