Renga, Ian Parker – Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, 2017
Much of the public discourse on education arguably reinforces the assumption that most stakeholders share the same desires for teaching and learning--desires reflecting a liberal paradigm that stresses individualism, control, and efficiency.

McCardle, Todd – Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, 2017

In this article, I employ a Gramscian framework to…
