Aguilar, Mario Sánchez; Castaneda, Apolo – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2021
We report a study on mathematical literacy with special emphasis on health literacy.

To achieve this, we analyze the daily reports on the pandemic issued by the…

Barnhardt, Cassie L.; Trolian, Teniell; An, Brian; Rossmann, Patrick D.; Morgan, Demetri L. – Review of Higher Education, 2019
More American college students spend their time working in paid employment than in the past. Prior scholarship has focused on the relationship between work and conventional outcomes (e.g., grades, persistence, and engagement), but little is known about the impact of students' work on civic engagement. As campuses are called to prepare students for…

Crocco, Margaret Smith; Shuttleworth, Jay M.; Chandler, Thomas – Social Studies and the Young Learner, 2016
Rachel Carson made history as a science writer challenging governmental and industrial authorities about the safety of pesticides.

Schrag, Francis – Theory and Research in Education, 2015
The paradigm for formulating educational policy adopted by Bischoff and Shores, which appears to be the prevailing one, appears to offer no role to the citizen, rendering the paradigm suspect. The authors' honest admission of the limitations of social science knowledge undercuts the argument for the usefulness of research in this area.

To follow up on research conducted in several countries, in this paper, we look at the dilemmas middle-class parents face of being "good parents" by choosing the "best" school with a milieu-related environment for their child versus being "good citizens" by choosing a "local" public school with a large…

Postsecondary teacher, Howard Doughty, has been teaching politics and government for close to fifty years.

Robertson, Emily – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2013
This article briefly considers current positions about whether the inclusion of the perspectives and interests of marginalised groups in the construction of knowledge is of epistemic value. It is then argued that applied social epistemology is the proper epistemic stance to take in evaluating this question. Theorists who have held that diversity…

Tröhler, Daniel – European Educational Research Journal, 2016
Although it is generally acknowledged that the building of mass schooling systems must be considered in close relation to the emerging nation-states of the long 19th century, few published studies discuss the interrelation between the actual foundation of the (nation-) states and the introduction of the modern school. This article examines the…

Karp, Ivan – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2012
The calling of public scholarship is inherently multifaceted, and often inherently controversial; public scholars have to accommodate different spheres of society, different cultural values and goods, and even different political agendas in their work. Unlike academic workers, public scholars rarely have the opportunity to do work that is driven…

Jamieson, Kathleen Hall – Social Education, 2014
For almost three quarters of a century, advocates have worked to give comparable federal stature to September 17, the day on which we celebrate the anniversary of the 1787 signing of the U.S. Constitution by the nation's founders. As President John F. Kennedy noted in his 1961 Constitution Day proclamation, it is a day for…

Jonas, Mark E. – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2012
Patricia White ("Stud Philos Educ" 18:43-52, 1999) argues that the virtue gratitude is essential to a flourishing democracy because it helps foster universal and reciprocal amity between citizens. Citizens who participate in this reciprocal relationship ought to be encouraged to recognize that "much that people do does in fact help to make…

Reiss, Dawn – District Administration, 2012
In the weeks leading up to a presidential election, it is hard to dismiss the importance of civic education, with campaign speeches, debates and advertisements blaring everywhere. Yet the National Assessment of Education Progress reports that only one-fourth of high school graduates are proficient in topics such as the American political system,…

Hill, Robert J. – New Directions for Adult and Continuing Education, 2012
Examining the intersection of civic engagement and environmental literacy is particularly timely because 2012 marked a critical juncture in history: the United Nations Literacy Decade ended, and a 20-year appraisal of the United Nation's Earth Summit commenced. The Literacy Decade, launched in 2003 under the slogan "Literacy as Freedom," situated…

Colatrella, Steven – Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, 2011
Giorgio Agamben's work has become widely influential as a guide to explaining the extra-constitutional powers assumed by governments under the rubric of the War on Terror. His formulations, such as Homo Sacer and State of Exception, have been extended to apply to a wide variety of experiences of repression of liberties or social control, including…
