Trends in the Administration and History of Education: What Counts? A Reply to Roy Lowe
Fitzgerald, Tanya; Gunter, Helen
Journal of Educational Administration and History, v37 n2 p127-136 Sep 2005
In this article, the authors take up Roy Lowe's invitation to contribute to the discussion that he began as the new editor of the "Journal of Educational Administration and History." Lowe set himself a challenging but necessary task in reflecting on the original aims of the Journal and how these might be understood from the authors' contemporary position as an editorial board and as subscribers. As members of the editorial board, they participated in the discussions about how the "Journal" can build on its achievements and move forward to best represent knowledge production. The authors' contribution is to focus on knowledge production, and they do this by presenting an analysis of their purposes in researching and theorising in education, and the issues needed to engage with in creating a distinctive identity for educational administration and history. Their account begins with a description and promotion of how they understand the purposes of the "Journal," which they problematise through giving a dual account of particular developments in New Zealand and England. They use this to support the case for a dynamic approach to critical knowledge production, both within the field as a whole and within the "Journal." (Contains 3 figures and 15 notes.)
