    Re-Humanization of Vocational Education and Training in Australia.Cheryl Livock - 2018 - Journal of Critical Realism 17 (1):63-77.
    Australia is restricted by the academic, social and administrative mechanisms of financialization. Exaggerated critiques about the adequacy of learner-centered approaches to education have been used to support a retrogressive shift from curriculum informed by contemporary educational theories, towards curriculum informed by management theories based on the dehumanizing educational theory of behaviourism. I therefore suggest a return to pre-1987 learning-centered educational theories, which include face-to-face relations, compassion and civility. This call is not new, but it has been largely ignored by powerful (...)

Overall these ideologies, which underpin globalization, are having (...)

    The Power of Historical Causal Components Involved in Engaging At-Risk Youth at Three Alternative Schools.Cheryl Livock - 2011 - Journal of Critical Realism 10 (1):36-59.
    This article addresses the causal powers associated with the social phenomena of alternative schooling for youth at risk. It stems from a doctoral thesis, Alternative Schooling Programs for At Risk Youth: Three Case Studies, which addresses wider issues integral to alternative schooling: youth at risk, alternative schooling models, and literacy. This article explores one aspect of alternative schooling: the historical causal factors involved in the establishment and continuance of three alternative case-study models in Queensland, Australia. By adhering to Bhaskar’s transformational (...)
