    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.

    Disproportionate sacrifices: Ricoeur's theories of justice and the widening participation agenda for higher education in the UK.Michael Watts - 2006 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 40 (3):301–312.
    Ricoeur's theories of justice are used here to examine the injustice of the utilitarian drive to widen participation in higher education in the UK and, in particular, the attribution of low aspirations and achievements to those young people who do not participate in higher education. Government policy is considered through Ricoeur's theory of the just state; and his ‘new commandment’ is used to consider the disproportionate sacrifice required of these young people if they are to enter higher education. Despite its (...)

    Sen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: Adaptive Preferences and Higher Education.Michael Watts - 2009 - Studies in Philosophy and Education 28 (5):425-436.
    Adaptive preferences are both a central justification and continuing problem for the use of the capability approach. They are illustrated here with reference to a project examining the choices of young people who had rejected higher education. Jon Elster, Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum have all criticised utilitarianism on the grounds that a focus on preference-satisfaction fails to acknowledge the human tendency to adapt preferences under unfavourable circumstances and that self-assessments of well-being are therefore likely to be distorted by deprivation.
