Perkins, Linda M. – History of Education Quarterly, 2020
Historically, education has often varied by curriculum, access, and stature based on location, race, gender, economic status, religion, and time period.

Wong, Ting-Hong – History of Education Quarterly, 2020
After World War II, the colonial rule imposed by the Kuomintang (KMT) in Taiwan was symbiotically connected with its project of nation building. This project of "national colonialism" initially spurred the KMT to build an extensive public education system and to marginalize private schools. Financial concerns after 1954, however, forced…

Arnaud, Sabine – History of Education Quarterly, 2020
While current debates oppose the cochlear implant's privileging of speech acquisition to teaching sign language, nineteenth-century debates, in contrast, opposed those who saw sign language as a tool for learning to read and write, and those who saw in it an autonomous language for organizing thought itself. Should the order of gestural signs…

In 1969, four years after passage of the Voting Rights Act, African Americans in Greene County, Alabama, reclaimed control of local government, becoming the first community in the South to do so since Reconstruction.

In the two decades following World War II, a loose network of home economists at colleges and universities across the United States turned their attention to homemaking methods for women with physical disabilities.

Taira, Derek – History of Education Quarterly, 2020
There is a "world of difference," anthropologist Epeli Hau'ofa argued, "between viewing the Pacific as 'islands in a far sea' and as 'a sea of islands.'" The distinction between both perspectives, he explained, is exemplified in the two names used for the region: Pacific Islands and Oceania. The former represents a colonial…

Pearce, Joanna L. – History of Education Quarterly, 2020
Nineteenth-century educators worried that blind children were particularly susceptible to moral apathy, religious decay, and atheism because they could not see the beauty of nature. These educators used instruction in biology, zoology, and natural history to teach blind children about the beauty of the natural world and the breadth of God's…

Many rights struggles have promoted education and learning as proof of citizenship and capacity, and disability rights movements are no exception.

Lozano, Rosina – History of Education Quarterly, 2020
The twenty-first century has seen a surge in scholarship on Latino educational history and a new nonbinary umbrella term, Latinx, that a younger generation prefers. Many of historian Victoria-María MacDonald's astute observations in 2001 presaged the growth of the field. Focus has increased on Spanish-surnamed teachers and discussions have grown…

Kryczka, Nicholas – History of Education Quarterly, 2019
Chicago's magnet schools were one of the nation's earliest experiments in choice-driven school desegregation, originating among civil rights advocates and academic education experts in the 1960s and appearing at specific sites in Chicago's urban landscape during the 1970s. The specific concerns that motivated the creation of magnet schools during…

Zelbo, Sian – History of Education Quarterly, 2019
When the New Orleans school board appointed E. J. Edmunds, a light-skinned Afro-Creole man, the mathematics teacher for the city's best high school in 1875, the senior students walked out rather than have a "negro" as a teacher of "white youths." Edmunds's appointment was a final, bold act by the city's mixed-race intellectual…
