McClung, Nicola A.; Barry, Elaine; Neebe, Diana; Mere-Cook, Yvette; Wang, Qi; Gonzalez-Balsam, Millie – Berkeley Review of Education, 2019
Students' freedom of choice is critical to promoting equity and literacy in the classroom. When students choose what they read, they are more likely to find books that represent their lives, interests, and personal desires and feel that they are autonomous and can self-regulate learning. Previous research suggests that offering choice during…

Dyke, Erin; Muckian Bates, Brendan – Berkeley Review of Education, 2019
The last few decades have seen increasing attacks on educators' right to participate in formal unions. Given the all-time low of formal union power in the United States and the success of anti-union efforts (Shelton, 2017), how and why have the educator uprisings manifested so intensely in the last few years? This article draws, in part, on a…

Parmenter, Justin – Berkeley Review of Education, 2019
Out of all the states that have struggled to provide a quality public education over the past decade, perhaps none have seen as precipitous a decline as North Carolina. Once seen as a regional model of progressive education policy, a succession of unfortunate occurrences has severely damaged the public education system. Activists now fight against…

Shiller, Jessica – Berkeley Review of Education, 2019
Public school teachers around the country are engaged in strikes. They walked out of their classrooms and schools to gain attention from state legislators, and not just for better salaries and benefits for themselves (although most Americans agree that teachers need better pay). Teachers are calling attention to a sticky problem in American public…
