Henig, Jeffrey R.; Lyon, Melissa Arnold – Education Next, 2019
Teachers unions have had a "muscular" presence in some states, but in others, especially in the South and Southwest, the unions have held little power in recent decades, and the growing dominance of conservative Republicans in state legislatures and statehouses was creating a hostile environment with right-to-work (RTW) laws. The…

Anzia, Sarah F. – Education Next, 2019
Teacher strikes and walkouts in West Virginia, Oklahoma, Arizona, and elsewhere grabbed public attention last spring, but these wildfires of statewide activism are unlikely to spread far. In most states, teachers have unique and powerful advantages in local politics--advantages they are unlikely to give up anytime soon--and they are already active…

Henig, Jeffrey R.; Lyon, Melissa Arnold; Anzia, Sarah F. – Education Next, 2019

Parekh, Gillian; Brown, Robert S. – Educational Policy, 2019

Fritts, Lauren – Art Education, 2019
The term "knolling" was first used in 1987 by Andrew Kromelow, then a janitor at Frank Gehry's Santa Monica studio (Heathcote, n.d.). At the time, Gehry, an architect, was designing furniture for Knoll. While cleaning the studio, Kromelow would arrange displaced tools at 90° angles to create an organized surface. Perhaps done out of…

Marcus, Jon – Education Next, 2019
This century has been a dramatic era for the for-profit higher-education industry. Enrollment at for-profit schools more than quadrupled between 2000 and 2010, but the sector was bruised and battered during years of clashes with the Obama administration, which sought to rein in abuses such as inflating job-placement rates and using high-pressure…

Stauffer, Karla – Art Education, 2019
The purpose of this article is to explore integrating nontraditional classroom art materials and allowing students to make art for nonart spaces. Art programs must stimulate creativity, innovation, and imagination; provide tools the students can use; identify a context the students can experiment within (Chang, 2015; Gude, 2010); and offer the…

Buffington, Melanie L. – Art Education, 2019
In 2015, the mass murder of nine people in a South Carolina church by a White supremacist led to greater public questioning of symbols of the Confederacy. This questioning led to action in the spring of 2017 when four large Confederate monuments were removed in New Orleans, Louisiana, and the citizens of Charlottesville, Virginia, voted to remove…

Burton, David – Art Education, 2019
Unlike other types of research that tend to hone in on narrowly defined problems, demographic research takes the broad view, embracing every aspect of the field of education. It constructs as wide and inclusive a picture of art education as possible. For art educators, it probes deeply into how they relate to art and art education as students, art…

Jackson, C. Kirabo – Education Next, 2019
When students look back on their most important teachers, the social aspects of their education are often what they recall. Learning to set goals, take risks and responsibility, or simply believe in oneself are often fodder for fond thanks--alongside mastering precalculus, becoming a critical reader, or remembering the capital of Turkmenistan. The…

Ross, Karen; Call-Cummings, Meagan – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
In this article, we interrogate the concept of methodological 'failures' as they arise during fieldwork, in the process of collecting empirical data.

Leatherdale, Scott T. – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2019
In particular research domains, the randomized control trial (RCT) is considered to be the only means for obtaining reliable estimates of the true impact of an intervention. However, an RCT design would often not be considered ethical, politically feasible, or appropriate for evaluating the impact of many policy, programme, or structural changes…
