This book is made up of a selection of writings from an international team of scholars, highlighting the contribution made to the field of educational policy and educational policy research by Basil Bernstein's work on the sociology of pedagogy. These contributors explore, analyse and engage with contemporary political reforms of education, contemporary pedagogic debates and the changing nature of professional knowledge, relationships and structures. The subjects covered include: * particular concepts such as voice research * the significance of social class in relation to the language, schooling and home cultures * differences between official and pedagogic recontextualising fields * formation of different types of identities * the construction of the learner * formation of teacher identities and use of pedagogic discourses * analysis of performance-based educational reforms and its impact on pedagogy.
