This text sets out to challenge the traditional power basis of the policy decision makers in education. It contests that others who have an equal right to be consulted and have their opinions known have been silenced, declared irrelevant, postponed and otherwise ignored. Policies have thus been formed and implemented without even a cursory feminist critical glance. The chapters in this text illustrate how to incorporate critical and feminist lenses and thus create policies to meet the lived realities, the needs, aspirations and values of women and girls. A particular focus is the primary and secondary sectors of education.

As national governments reform their educational systems to meet the challenges of living in a globalised world, the agenda setting power of transnational organizations like the OECD and the EU have become more transparent in the last decade. The phenomenon of globalization has a number of implications for education policy-making processes and not least it has had an impact on who conducts policy studies and how. This book brings together a variety of contributions which explore recent political economic changes affecting education policy-making processes including the ascension of neo-liberalism and the transnationalization of education policy-making, as well as the tension between research of policy and research for policy. Working from different perspectives, the authors help to provide a better understanding of these two important sets of issues which the field of education must contend with today.

Critical theory has much to teach us about higher education. By linking critical models, methods, and research tools with an advocacy-driven vision of the central challenges facing postsecondary researchers and staff, Critical Approaches to the Study of Higher Education makes a significant—and long overdue—contribution to the development of the field. The contributors argue that, far from being overly abstract, critical tools and methods are central to contemporary scholarship and can have practical policy implications when brought to the study of higher education. They argue that critical research design and critical theories help scholars see beyond the normative models and frameworks that have long limited our understanding of students, faculty, institutions, the organization and governance of higher education, and the policies that shape the postsecondary arena. A rigorous and invaluable guide for researchers seeking innovative approaches to higher education and the morass of traditionally functionalist, rational, and neoliberal thinking that mars the field, this book is also essential for instructors who wish to incorporate the lessons of critical scholarship into their course development, curriculum, and pedagogy.

This volume reviews and synthesizes recent research on faculty demographics, appointment types, work life, and reward systems, as well as major theoretical perspectives useful to researchers who study faculty work, careers, and professional development. In doing so, it advances and challenges current dialogue on faculty careers, notably by exploring a "narrative of constraint" that underlies much contemporary research and reform in higher education. Although highlighting the valuable ways whereby the "narrative of constraint" has illuminated the myriad barriers that can, and too often do, inhibit faculty careers, the authors assert that the theme of "constraint" obscures possibility, learning, agency, and growth. In emphasizing constraint, many contemporary research and reform efforts overlook faculty striving for growth. This volume reintroduces growth as an important consideration in higher education discourses of policy and practice, and with attention to four of its key aspects: learning, agency, professional relationships, and commitments. The authors discuss current research on faculty demographics, appointments, work, reward systems, along with theories used in research, relative to these four aspects of growth. They also discuss how attention to faculty growth may open up new directions for policy, public communication, and future research on higher education faculty. -- P. 4 of cover.
