What are the scariest slogans in politics

On the topicality of critical theory for education

Can critical theory still claim topicality in educational science and educational policy discourse? In their contributions, the authors deal with individual aspects of upbringing and educational theory of the current discourse as well as with pedagogically relevant topics from the socio-political area. The focus is on the question of whether critical theory's tools of thought can still help analyze developments and clarify contradictions in educational discourse.
