#035 Research Roundup – youth volunteering, silent classrooms and the National Education Service

In this episode Phil Yeeles, Junior Researcher at LKMco, shares a selection of research that he has been reading lately with Dr Sam Baars, our Director of Research. This episode has a critical conceptual focus: Sam and Phil discuss the ideological implications of youth social action as an uncontested ‘good’, the consequences of perpetually silent ‘zero-tolerance’ classrooms, and what different visions of a National Education Service might look like, the problems they might solve and the challenges they’d face.

This is the last ever LKMco podcast. No, don’t worry, we’re not going away! But here at LKMco we’re about to make some exciting changes… like our name, and our logo. So when our next episode arrives in your app in a few weeks’ time, just a heads up that although we might sound familiar, we might look a bit different.

In this episode Phil and Sam discuss:

  • The ideology behind ‘youth social action’ as a policy and its interaction with austerity
  • The problems arising from zero-tolerance behaviour management at the classroom level
  • The consequences of maintaining a silent classroom in terms of pupil engagement with education
  • The ongoing teacher recruitment and retention crisis
  • The future of the teaching profession
  • Teachers’ working conditions and rights
  • Sectoral collective bargaining for education workers
  • Visions of the National Education Service
  • Phil’s favourite phases of education
