Komatsu, Hikaru; Rappleye, Jeremy; Silova, Iveta – Comparative Education Review, 2021
While discussions surrounding education for sustainable development (ESD) are diverse, most scholars and policy makers view student-centered learning (SCL) as axiomatic. In contrast, we argue that promoting SCL potentially stymies educational contributions to sustainability by extending a culturally specific belief in ontological individualism. We…

Tensions over borders lie at the center of a growing global debate. But while politicians argue, some US higher education institutions (HEIs) have made education and protections possible for displaced students.

Investment in girls' education is offered as a salve to the Global South that will alleviate poverty, prevent terrorism, and curb gender-based violence. Rather than treat this thesis and its evidentiary basis as axiomatic, we examine some of the conditions for the intelligibility of this crisis, prevalent in much international development and…

Carhill-Poza, Avary; Williams, Timothy P. – Comparative Education Review, 2020
Across many education systems, technologies like computers and tablets are now ubiquitous. But the mere presence of these technologies is insufficient to improve learning, and implementation without careful thought may reinforce inequalities for disenfranchised groups such as immigrant children and youth. In the United States, immigrant students…

Phillips, Aprille J. – Comparative Education Review, 2020
Historically, education policy has frequently framed American Indians, a contested term long-used to describe peoples indigenous to the United States, through a deficit-lens as "other."
