Abstract: Since its introduction to the field of educational research in the mid 1990’s, critical race theory (CRT) has become a major influence on research that examines racial oppression in schools. There are concerns, however, that in the move from legal studies to social scientific research on education, CRT’s critique of neutrality and objectivity might become domesticated and stripped of its politically provocative force. This paper examines the promise of agential realist ontologies (found in new materialist philosophy of science, indigenous philosophy, and revisionist pragmatist philosophy) for putting critical race theory’s racial realism to work in the social sciences without surrendering its more transformative agendas. The paper draws on a ten year study of the way the racial resegregation of a school district functioned like a hidden curriculum to illustrate this promise.

Abstract: This study used standard multiple linear regression to investigate relationships between mathematics achievement, per pupil operating expenditure, mathematic curriculum and student’s social economic status with a sample of 118, 571 high school students in a Midwestern state. Regression results indicate that the overall model significantly predicts mathematics achievement, R2 =.401, R2adj = .401, F (4, 118566) = 19832.84, p<.000. This model accounts for 40.1% of variance in mathematics. The study concluded with a discussion of the importance of mathematics curriculum, per pupil expenditures, years of mathematics and the challenges institutions face in trying to improve students’ achievement irrespective of student’s socioeconomic status.

Abstract: Zanzibar and Tanzania, mainland (earlier Tanganyika), have since 1967 been part of a joint republic, the United Republic of Tanzania(URT). While the two entities have the same curricula, numbers of lessons in each subject in secondary school, the curricula in primary education are different. Until recently they have, however, been rather similar. In 2006, Zanzibar endorsed the new Educational policy, which was based on an evaluation of the Zanzibar Education Master Plan for the years 1996 to 2006. The reason for the change seems to be two fold to reinforce local Islam-based culture and, to facilitate global integration through increased use of English as well as to enhance quality education in secondary school to decrease dropouts and achieve gender parity in secondary schools.
In 2010, Zanzibar began implementation of a new Education and Training policy. This policy will change important aspects of curriculum in primary and secondary education, including a change in the language of instruction (LoI), Kiswahili shall continue as the LoI in primary schools except for mathematics and science subjects from standard five where English shall be used, English and Arabic will be taught from primary one as foreign languages, diverse sports and physical education facilities, Computer education, Science and technology.
This paper will critically analyze the new curriculum, how policy decisions were made, how policies are being implemented and their consequences for quality learning in primary schools. The work will be grounded in educational and pedagogical research, where the principle emphasis has been on the effects of the choice of language on cognitive and learning processes, the cultural identity, the politics of development, and the ways that local people and governments interpret and deal with the issues related to learning process within the curriculum development.
