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.

The Ghana School Feeding Programme has ambitions to feed 3 million children this year. This paper examines how the potentially confrontational tool of social audit has contributed to constructing an accountability community engaging public, private and civic sectors of society in more effective partnership working , and developing a shared agenda for both ‘proving’ and ‘improving’ what they do.
