by James Stillwaggon — 2016
As Robert McClintock argues, educational researchers often rely upon a distributive model of justice, despite its insufficiency in describing education’s formative aims. In this essay, I argue that the limits of our contemporary view of education as a distributable good can be traced to two distinct and contradictory traditions in educational thought: one, the distributive ideal of divine plenitude and the other, the formative principle that McClintock identifies in Plato’s Republic.

by Avi Mintz — 2016
Does Plato’s trailblazing discussion of common education in The Republic include all children or only those of the elite guardian class? The author proposes a new way of answering this question. He suggests that Plato’s ambiguous treatment of the third class’s education in The Republic may have been intentional, designed to provoke his readers to address this question.

by Robert McClintock — 2016
This paper introduces the human problem of acting justly; it discusses the work that concepts of justice perform in human action; it situates a concept of formative justice relative to other forms of justice (i.e., distributive, retributive, social); and it explores some implications formative justice can have for educational policy and practice.

The field of urban education knows little about the role of suburban mayors in political fragmentation, or division into smaller organizational units, of multi-city suburban school districts, particularly in relation to contemporary mayoral control activity in central cities. This article reports on a mixed method study that examined the interplay of political, fiscal and demographic dynamics that contributed to the split of a large, U.S., suburban school district. The authors found that rapid demographic and financial shifts in school districts shared by multiple suburban cities can catalyze secession activities. Strong city mayors were a key force propelling division and modifying district governance structures through heightening the prominence of city borders and local control, even when the threats were neighboring middle class cities. The authors conclude that these practices of division and appropriation by cities and their leadership will only diminish democratic process of school governance and exacerbate social-class and racial segregation.

by Jeff Frank — 2015
This article develops the significance of James Baldwin’s thinking for teacher education. In particular, the article develops Baldwin’s thinking on three interrelated themes: white innocence, fear, and love. The article concludes by arguing that Baldwin’s thinking—particularly his thinking on love—should be given more sustained attention by educators, especially teacher educators.

by Lara Perez-Felkner — 2015

by Deirdre Kelly — 2014
This chapter delineates three models of democracy, noting the role that alternative education plays within each model. Then, from the perspective of the participatory democracy model, I examine various initiatives to foster democracy in alternative learning contexts, drawing relevant examples from the literature to highlight critical issues, tensions, and dilemmas, and lessons learned.

by Bonny Gildin — 2014

Central to the model are self-conscious and collective acts of performing and pretending that help youth living in high poverty, urban areas grow as learners and builders of their lives and their communities.

by Jrčne Rahm — 2014
The chapter explores the space–time configuration of youth-voice driven science practices outside of school that are part of an emergent field of study known as informal science education (ISE). Education is an emergent phenomenon grounded in a relational geography of youths’ complex space–time configurations. A focus on youths’ mobilities offers new insights into the manner youth contribute to their own learning and becoming.
