The article examines a unique bilingual (Arabic-Hebrew), binational (Jewish-Palestinian) school in Israel/Palestine in its struggle to be a sustainable and broadly transformative endeavor by opening enrollment to external students. In particular, the article analyzes the impact of this process on the school’s counterhegemonic curricula, pedagogy, and dynamics, and the implications for the transformative potential of bottom-up democratic education initiatives in the absence of accompanying policy change.

This study examines the influence of high school exposure to basic science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, high school exposure to STEM-related environment and activities, high school quantity of exposure to precollege STEM classes, and the quality of the latter for a sample of college-bound North Carolina students’ intent to major in STEM and likelihood of declaring a STEM major. Special attention is given to the differential association with students of different races/ethnicities and gender.

This article highlights the fact that certain elements inherent in the act of public teaching have their roots in Christian, particularly Biblical, thinking. The authors illustrate that although teaching is thought of as a secular activity, and although it is often assumed that religion has been expunged from public, including teacher, education, the sediments of religion remain present in how the teacher learns to imagine, construct, and enact his or her work as teacher as savior and martyr.

This article reframes the debate about what fuels high rates of teacher turnover in high-poverty schools. After reviewing findings from past studies of turnover, it focuses on recent scholarship suggesting that teachers who leave such schools are not fleeing their students, but rather the poor working conditions that make it difficult for them to teach and for their students to learn.
