Garcia, Peggie; Morales, P. Zitlali – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2016
Although there has been a great deal of debate about the effectiveness of charter schools in the research literature, there has been surprisingly little attention paid to English language learners (ELLs) in charter schools. Moreover, the charter school research has predominantly focused on whether or not charter schools are effective rather than…

Walls, Leon – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This paper is written in response to Angela Chapman and Allan Feldman's research study, "Cultivation of science identity through authentic science in an urban high school [classroom]".

Borthwick, Arlene; Hansen, Randall; Gray, Lucy; Ziemann, Irina – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2008
The editorial by Bull et al. (2008) on connections between informal and formal learning made explicit one element of solving what Koehler and Mishra (2008) termed a "wicked problem." This wicked (complex, ill-structured) problem involves working with teachers for effective integration of technology in support of student learning. The…

Tavin, Kevin – Art Education, 2014
In an era that is rife with aggression and hostility, most art educators hold close to their hearts the belief that they, and their students, can contribute to making the world a better place. Through their acts as teachers and the daily work of art education, they often strive toward creating a space of "non-violence." For K-12…

Berland, Leema K.; McNeill, Katherine L. – Science Education, 2012
Scientific argumentation and explanation are essential practices of science that have been highlighted as equally important for K-12 science education. However, as Osborne and Patterson (2011) have recently argued, both the term "argument" and "explanation" have multiple, overlapping, meanings, and uses in science education. In this article, the…

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…

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:…

Heller, Rafael – Phi Delta Kappan, 2017
Supporters of K-12 arts education often make the case that when students study music, dance, theatrical performance, and the visual arts, they tend to improve in the academic subjects as well. But, as Lois Hetland explains, that's not the best way to advocate for greater investments in arts instruction. In fact, a careful analysis of a vast amount…

Frost, Joe L. – Childhood Education, 2007
In this article, the author observes how a combination of interrelated elements are currently changing the face of the civilizing traditions of the U.S. education and forming a new culture of childhood. These include: (1) the standardization of education; (2) the dissolution of traditional spontaneous play; and (3) the growing specter of poverty…

Hillmann, Paula J. – Online Submission, 2004
Are creativity and imaginative thinking impeded by the emphasis that many American schools place on cooperative learning and collaborative thinking today?
