Buethe, John – Educational Theory, 2022
We turn to experience when confronted by a problem, or so John Dewey's oeuvre suggests. Yet, what use is experience when the problem falls outside the boundaries of the known?

Hayden, Matthew J.; Harman, William Gregory – Educational Theory, 2021
Education's autonomy cannot be found in schooling. For a theory of education to also adequately support education's autonomy, it must decouple itself from schooling since schooling is a technology of efficiency and acculturation that serves technocratic interests that strip autonomy from education. Using Christer Fritzell's examination of relative…

Increased reliance on trigger warnings, safe…
