Along with Kim Allen from University of Leeds, earlier this year I edited a special issue for Sociological Research Online on ‘character education’. We also wrote an article about how character education policies have migrated from the US to the UK, following the funding that has put this idea on the UK policy agenda back to its source. If you want the blog-length version, read our short piece here.
We ran a launch event for the special issue at Goldsmiths, University of London in July, and had some great speakers. Two of the responses to the special issue are now up on the Sociological Research Online blog, by Val Gillies and Akane Kanai.
