Using data on 430 teacher candidates for state legislature during the 2018 midterm elections, this article examines the extent to which women teachers ran for state legislative office, where they won, and the degree to which they contributed to the surge of women representatives elected to state legislatures around the country. We focus, in particular, on the degree to which political activism in a women-dominated profession like education spurred a new generation of women state legislators.

This article conceptualizes educational pipelines comparing the educational attainment of Chicana/o/x, White, Black, Asian, and Native students as critical race heuristics, or exegetic visual instruments and pedagogical tools used by critical race theory scholars to concisely depict structural inequities predicated on racial hierarchies that elicit understandings of systemic oppression, foster critical awareness, and inspire action.

This study explores how systemic barriers affect promise program students’ abilities to meet promise program requirements and their postsecondary goals. Study findings unpack how promise students (as well as their counterparts) navigate schools that are inequitable and influence senior-year course-taking, supplemental programming, and postsecondary advising, which can impact promise students’ access to the supports needed to meet scholarship aims.

The authors focus on the interrelated mechanisms of disproportionality that hinder Black boys in the context of urban schools in the United States. We specifically address mis/beliefs and perceptions of majority-White teachers about Black boys as well as the carceral logics that gird micro-level school policies and practices, which can emerge as the connective tissue for criminalization and the school-to-prison nexus that disproportionately affects Black boys in the United States.

This paper qualitatively examines learner experiences in a fully online learning program. We find that students value four learner-centered program characteristics (diversity, authenticity, safety, and individuality) and five community-centered program structures (facilitating peer-to-peer interactions, establishing norms and expectations, differentiating for learning preferences, explaining the strengths and limitations of technology, and supporting student-driven initiatives).
