This manuscript illustrates how even a professionally sophisticated and well-conceptualized school reform network can exacerbate educatorsí tendencies to focus on short-term adjustments of their teaching rather than conceptualize and implement long-term, systemic reform. It advances a new tripartite disaggregation of presentism into endemic, adaptive, and addictive facets, arguing that the latter two have been especially virulent in the wake of the standards and accountability movements.

Although much research has evaluated childrenís books for depictions of gender, little has centered on the portrayal of immigrants and social class.

This study draws on multicultural feminist theories to examine the integral role of emotions as a site of knowledge in the complex social dynamics of a heterogeneous group of graduate students in education. Within a pedagogy of (dis)comfort and a pedagogy of challenge, four prevalent patterns of emotional selectivity reveal how emotions as a site of knowledge create possibilities of change and transformation as well as the maintenance of the status quo of educational inequalities.
