Thornton, Steve – Mathematics Education Research Journal, 2022
This paper makes a case for placing knowledge at the centre of the school mathematics curriculum, and for knowledge building and knowledge differentiation as critical for both equity and excellence, emphasising that knowledge is much more than a set of descriptions of content as might typically be found in a curriculum document or textbook. The…

Kidder, Jeffrey L.; Binder, Amy J. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2022
Released in the wake of postwar concerns over European totalitarianism, "Higher Education for American Democracy" offered a blueprint for a more socially inclusive college experience--one that could help bolster informed and thoughtful civic participation throughout the nation.

Challenger, Douglas F. – New England Journal of Higher Education, 2021
According to Douglas Challenger, American democracy just survived a near-death experience during the slow-motion coup that was the four years of Donald Trump's presidency. It culminated in his rejecting his electoral loss and pressuring officials and political allies to back his claims that the election was fraudulent and, at the end, inciting his…

Davidson, Jennifer W. – Teaching Theology & Religion, 2021
In this response to the 46th Annual Distinguished Faculty Lecture by Valerie Miles-Tribble at the Graduate Theological Union, I reflect on four questions: (1) What practices can help us cultivate and restore hope when our hope inevitably wanes? (2) How do we vigorously, even relentlessly expose injustices (and our complicities with them) even…

Kitchen, Jennifer – British Educational Research Journal, 2021
This article, understanding populism as an essentially undemocratic ideology, argues that the pro-social theatre education approach of ensemble pedagogy can offer a model of educational practice which counters these anti-democratic rhetorics by creating a shared space for the enactment of empathetic discourse. Via an ethnography of the UK…

Chrostowski, Mariusz – Journal of Religious Education, 2022
The Right-wing populism in Poland faces multiple challenges with respect to Religious Education. This is a complex issue, given it is not only about school education supporting pro-democratic positions in the modern generation of students, but also the fact that today's populists have participated in long-term and complex educational processes of…

Säfström, Carl Anders; Månsson, Niclas – European Educational Research Journal, 2022
This article deals with the question of what has happened to 'the public' in the Swedish education system during the last three decades. In our search for an answer we illuminate and discuss how the process of marketisation, together with the learnification and individualisation of education, replaced 'the public' from public education with the…

McCully, George – New England Journal of Higher Education, 2021
There has been a growing consensus among authorities, especially in the Trump era, that the U.S. is in an epistemological crisis that threatens its democracy. President Barack Obama, for example, in a recent "Atlantic" interview, said: "If we do not have the capacity to distinguish what's true from what's false, then by definition…

Benedict, Cathy – Action, Criticism, and Theory for Music Education, 2021
Tensions between authoritarianism, pluralism, sectarianism, inclusion, diversity, and religious and national identity pervade and construct the possibilities of global discourse. In many ways, these tensions signal a retreat from reforms that require discomfort, reflexive engagements, courage. This retreat manifests in policies, both real and…

Niknafs, Nasim – Philosophy of Music Education Review, 2021
The commitment to all things democratic in educational spheres has inspired and generated much contemporary conversation in music education scholarship.

Villacañas de Castro, Luis Sebastián – Studies in Philosophy and Education, 2020
This article aims to establish a line of continuity between John Dewey's democratic and educational ideals and the practice of action research, to justify that the latter affords an adequate means to enact Dewey's ideals against the destructive challenges that neoliberalism poses to democracy today. This aim involves three ideas that will be…

Hytten, Kathy; Stemhagen, Kurt – Educational Theory, 2021
In this essay, Kathy Hytten and Kurt Stemhagen explore the evasion of race, particularly implicit whiteness, in democratic theory. The authors maintain that democratic theorists, especially those who write about education, avoid discussions of race, often writing in universal terms about democracy while ignoring the ways that ostensibly democratic…
