Open Access research that is helping to improve educational outcomes for children

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Education, including those researching educational and social practices in curricular subjects. Research in this area seeks to understand the complex influences that increase curricula capacity and engagement by studying how curriculum practices relate to cultural, intellectual and social practices in and out of schools and nurseries.

Research at the School of Education also spans a number of other areas, including inclusive pedagogy, philosophy of education, health and wellbeing within health-related aspects of education (e.g. physical education and sport pedagogy, autism and technology, counselling education, and pedagogies for mental and emotional health), languages education, and other areas.

Abstract

The 2007-13 period has seen important changes in the management and implementation of cohesion policy with respect to improving strategic coherence, concentrating expenditure on priorities related to the Lisbon Agenda, improving performance and ensuring better strategic reporting. However, the expectations of the 2006 reforms have only been partially met, and there are key lessons for European institutions and Member States regarding commitment, capacity and accountability for the 2014-20 period.
