Zembylas, Michalinos – Democracy & Education, 2018
This is a response to Ásgeir Tryggvason's argument that the deliberative critique of the agonistic approach to citizenship education is based on a misreading of the main concepts in agonistic theory--a misreading that has important implications for any attempt to bring closer agonism and deliberation in citizenship education. My aim in this…

This commentary highlights findings from two reviews of research on the preparation and continuing development of regular classroom teachers to teach English language learners.

van de Vijver, Fons J. R. – New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, 2019

Scoggin, Daniel; Vander Ark, Tom – Education Next, 2018
A truism of school reform has long been the promise that technology, properly applied, will fuel dramatic improvement in teaching and learning. When tech-enabled schools or online learning programs haven't delivered the hoped-for results, some have dismissed these shortcomings as implementation problems--or evidence that we haven't yet deployed…

Lickona, Thomas – Journal of Character Education, 2018
Robert McGrath's article has the great virtue of asking an important question: "What is character education?"

Neem, Johann N. – Democracy & Education, 2018
The Common Core does not advance democratic education. Far from it, the opening section of the language standards argues that the goal of public K-12 education is "college and career readiness." Only at the end of their introductory section do the Common Core's authors suggest that K-12 education has any goals beyond the economic:…
