McKinney de Royston, Maxine; Madkins, Tia C.; Givens, Jarvis R.; Nasir, Na'ilah Suad – American Educational Research Journal, 2021
Many Black educators in the United States demonstrate a political clarity about white supremacy and the racialized harm it cultivates in and out of schools.

Marsh, Julie A.; Allbright, Taylor N.; Brown, Danica R.; Bulkley, Katrina E.; Strunk, Katharine O.; Harris, Douglas N. – American Educational Research Journal, 2021
In recent years, some U.S. school districts have shifted away from direct management of schools, toward systems in which some or all schools operate under enhanced autonomy, accountability, and parental choice. Yet dynamics driving these changes are understudied, and there are few comparative studies of system-level governance shifts. To address…

Hamlin, Daniel – American Educational Research Journal, 2021
Nearly 15% of American students are chronically absent from school. To address absenteeism, many states have recently made chronic absence a core component of their school accountability plans. Scholars have theorized that a positive school climate can promote student attendance, but empirical support for this idea is lacking. In this study, the…

Kramer, Dennis A., II.; Ortagus, Justin C.; Donovan, Jacqueline – American Educational Research Journal, 2021
To address local workforce needs and expand access to affordable bachelor's degrees, some states allow community colleges to offer bachelor's degree programs. Despite concerns that community college baccalaureate (CCB) programs will duplicate efforts and cut into the market share of nearby 4-year institutions, extant literature has yet to examine…

Atteberry, Allison; McEachin, Andrew – American Educational Research Journal, 2021
Summer learning loss (SLL) is a familiar and much-studied phenomenon, yet new concerns that measurement artifacts may have distorted canonical SLL findings create a need to revisit basic research on SLL. Though race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status only account for about 4% of the variance in SLL, nearly all prior work focuses on these factors.…

The authors theorize what we call managerialist subterfuge, drawing on distinct ethnographic studies to examine how adult "partners" leverage the language and strategies of corporate managerialism to undermine youths' radical visions of change. Critical analysis of patterns in interview and participant observation data across two youth…

Wu, Yong; Schunn, Christian D. – American Educational Research Journal, 2021

But the mechanistic pathways by which skills develop have remained untested: Does receiving and providing feedback lead to learning because it produces more extensive revision behavior or is such immediate implementation…

High levels of school mobility are a problem in many urban districts. Many of these same districts are also dealing with high rates of violent crime. In this study, we use 6 years (2010-2011 to 2015-2016) of administrative data from Baltimore City public elementary school students and crime data from the Baltimore Police Department to examine…
