Keith's research interests are moral, political, and theological philosophies that include philosophies of education, critical theory and critical pedagogy. In particular, research into the extent higher educational institutions are accessible to all for free and fair human development, as opposed to places for the selected few and their adaption to an unjust status quo. 

Keith is currently preparing for an EdD for an investigation into the causes and consequences of commercialising programmes for Initial Teacher Training in the Lifelong Learning Sector. This will be based on criticisms of meritocratic distributions of education given by Michael Young (1958), The Rise of the Meritocracy and by John Rawls (1971), A Theory of Justice and related works.
