    Adaptive Preference, Justice and Identity in the Context of Widening Participation in Higher Education.David Bridges - 2006 - Ethics and Education 1 (1):15-28.
    Cultures of low aspirations, and more particularly young people's adaptation to them, are often presented as the major obstacle to an economic development agenda which requires more higher-level skills and a social agenda which is about enabling people from ‘non-traditional’ backgrounds to go to university. The article analyses and discusses some of the different sorts of constraints on the choices which we make and which may become unconsciously internalised and so constitute our adaptive preference. It argues, however, that all choice (...)

    Educational Research and Policy: Epistemological Considerations.David Bridges & Michael Watts - 2008 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 42 (s1):41-62.
    This article is centrally concerned with the sort of knowledge that can and should inform educational policy—and it treats this as an epistemological question. It distinguishes this question from the more extensively explored question of what sort of knowledge in what form policy-makers do in fact commonly take into account. The article examines the logical and rhetorical character of policy and the components of policy decisions and argues that policy demands a much wider range of information than research typically provides.

    The Ethics and Politics of the International Transfer of Educational Policy and Practice.David Bridges - 2014 - Ethics and Education 9 (1):84-96.
    The focus of this paper is on a variety of practices associated with the transfer of educational policy and practice from one national education system to another – practices sometimes referred to as ‘policy borrowing’. Its concern is with the ethical and political issues raised by these practices. In particular, it discusses concerns that these practices might be practically inappropriate, that they might be culturally insensitive or inappropriate, and that they might be impositional, exploitative perhaps or even oppressive. Such concerns (...)

    Education, Autonomy, and Democratic Citizenship: Philosophy in a Changing World.David Bridges (ed.) - 1997 - Routledge.
    This international collection forms a response from 22 educators to our changing political environment and to the reassessment they provoke of the principles shaping educational thought and practice. The philosophical discussion, however, remains clearly rooted in the world of educational practice and its political content.

    Education and the Possibility of Outsider Understanding.David Bridges - 2009 - Ethics and Education 4 (2):105-123.
    In education issues to do with insider and outsider understanding arise in debates about religious education and about certain areas of research, and in argument about education for international understanding. Here I challenge the dichotomy between insider and outsider, arguing that a more collectivist view of human identity combined with elements of 'the self which we share with our fellows' means that we always stand in part as an insider and in part as an outsider in relation to others. I (...)

    The Practice of Higher Education: In Pursuit of Excellence and of Equity.David Bridges - 2006 - Educational Theory 56 (4):371-386.
    In this essay, David Bridges explores the notion of practice with particular application to the practice of higher education. He considers whether some of the changes in practices linked to the massification of higher education have in fact resulted in the breakdown of higher education as a practice, at least on Alasdair MacIntyre’s definition of the term. Specifically, Bridges examines whether higher education has lost its sense of the forms of human excellence around which its life is constructed. Finally, he (...)

    Educationalization: On the Appropriateness of Asking Educational Institutions to Solve Social and Economic Problems.David Bridges - 2008 - Educational Theory 58 (4):461-474.
    Educationalization is a term most frequently used to indicate that government has inappropriately imposed on educational institutions responsibility for providing the solution to some social or economic problem. In this essay David Bridges illustrates, however, the way in which educational institutions collude in this process, where they see doing so as in their interests. He also points to the way idealistically educators might seek to contribute to the wider social agenda of their age. Indeed it is arguable that there is (...)

    Government's Construction of the Relation Between Parents and Schools in the Upbringing of Children in England: 1963–2009.David Bridges - 2010 - Educational Theory 60 (3):299-324.
    In this essay David Bridges argues that since most families choose to realize their responsibility for the major part of their children's education through state schools, then the way in which the state constructs parents' relation with these schools is one of its primary levers on parenting itself. Bridges then examines the way in which parent‐school relations have been defined in England through government and quasi‐government interventions over the last forty‐five years, tracing these through an awakening interest in the relation (...)

    Working Without Shame in International Educational Development? From Consequentialism to Casuistry.David Bridges - 2015 - Ethics and Education 10 (3):271-283.
    The central question addressed in this paper is about the ethics of engaging with educational development in countries perceived as undemocratic or as failing to respect human rights. More particularly, it examines the nature of the arguments that are brought to bear on this issue. It suggests that these are essentially consequentialist in character and hence fall prey to many of the limitations of such consequentialism, including the unpredictability of what will unfold, the indeterminacy of the consequences and the complex (...)
