Speak a Different Language: Reimagine the Grammar of Schooling

13 July 2020 3,770 One Comment

My paper published in the journal of International Studies in Educational Administration. Download and read the paper here.

Abstract: The ‘grammar’ of schooling identified by David Tyack and William Tobin in the 1990s is the core business of schools. Despite numerous efforts by numerous smart, innovative, and sometimes even powerful individuals to make changes, the ‘grammar’ stays pretty much the same. There are plenty of reasons why it should not be the way to organise schooling, yet it still is. During COVID-19, is it possible to make changes to the ‘grammar’? My argument is that it probably is not. I argue that instead of fixing or changing the grammar, we need to speak a different language: instead of speaking schooling, we need to speak education.
