Rodríguez, Briana K. N.; Kokka, Kari – Educational Foundations, 2021
Relationships, such as the advisee/advisor relationship, in academia are typically taught to be used as a resource (a commodity) for the advancement of one's career.

Mustaffa, Jalil B. – Educational Foundations, 2021
I first describe the Black scholarly dilemma to set up the reader for how spirit murder happens subtly and the ways, I argue, centering Black life can restore our spirits.

Williams, Shelby L. – Educational Foundations, 2020
Whiteness is more than a racial identity. It is a concept that is deeply embedded into the structures and histories of many institutions of higher education.

Jensen, Devon; Freeman, Sydney, Jr. – Educational Foundations, 2019
Higher Education as a Field of Study is multi-disciplinary in its origin. Given the relative youth of the field, as it was only founded less than 130 years ago, it does not yet have standalone theories or philosophies as the scholarship in the field frequently borrows from its epistemological, methodological, and philosophical ideas from more…

Walker, Larry J.; Goings, Ramon B.; Wilkerson, Reginald D. – Educational Foundations, 2019
Nationally Black males comprise less than 2% of public school teachers. The startling figure is not sustainable in a diverse society.

Burbules, Nicholas C. – Educational Foundations, 2018
For decades, the humanistic disciplines--particularly history and philosophy of education--have justified themselves as an essential part of professional training for educators by characterizing themselves as the "foundations of education." This justification, the author will argue, has been weakened in recent years, and as a consequence…
