"Call for Papers" for Volume 6 Number 1: The Education Our Children Deserve

The Journal of Educational Controversy announces a new "Call for Papers" for Volume 6 Number 1, Summer 2011.


THEME: THE EDUCATION OUR CHILDREN DESERVE

We invite authors to respond to the following controversy:

The politicizing of education at the national level has centered on issues of standards, accountability, global competitiveness, national economic growth, low student achievement on worldwide norms, and federally mandated uniformity. There has been little discussion of the public purposes of our schools or what kind of education is necessary for an individual’s development and search for a meaningful life. There is a paucity of ideas being discussed at the national level around topics such as: how school practices can be aligned with democratic principles of equity and justice; how school practices can promote the flourishing of individual development as well as academic achievement; what skills and understandings are needed for citizens to play a transformative role in their society. Without conversation at this deeper level about the fundamental purposes of education, we cannot develop a comprehensive vision of the kinds of schools our children deserve. We invite authors to contribute their conceptions of the kind of education our children deserve and/or the kinds of schools that serve the needs of individuals and of a democratic society.

Please see the website of the Journal of Educational Controversy for guidelines on submitting manuscripts. http://www.wce.wwu.edu/Resources/CEP/eJournal/

Deadline for manuscripts: December 31, 2010
