Joldersma, Clarence W. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2020
The essay develops a case study about a young boy playing with a toy train to address neoliberalism's problematic discourse that depicts learning as instrumental, as something that can be caused by teaching.

Philosophy for Children (henceforth P4C) is a program and a pedagogy for teaching philosophy in k-12 school that was first developed by Matthew Lipman and Ann Margaret Sharp.

Waddington, David I. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2020
This essay explores the possibility that a particular type of video game--real-time strategy games--could have worrisome educational impacts. In order to make this case, I will develop a theoretical framework originally advanced by French social critic Paul Virilio. In two key texts, Speed and Politics (1977) and "The Aesthetics of…

Parker, Lana – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2019
At a time when an ethics based on responsibility for the Other offers a counter to the individualism of neoliberal ideology, I argue that it is crucial to recuperate the possibility of creating the conditions for ethical moments of facing through all means possible, including art. I deliberate the possibilities for art in sustaining Levinas's…

This essay explores Drerup's claim,…

Numerous studies have shown that secondary and college students are increasingly apathetic and disengaged from their schooling.

Bakker, Colin; Dubensky, Kate; Harvey, Lyndze; McDonough, Graham P. – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2019
In teacher education programs, there is a prevalent belief that having teacher candidates compose personalized 'my philosophy of education' (MPE) statements is a valuable exercise that prepares them for the teaching profession.

Robin Barrow has critiqued the use of the concept of "skill" for a wide range of human attributes that are not skills in the precise sense he articulated, namely: "a capacity that is discrete and can be perfected through practice and exercise." Skill talk has persisted, though today commonly under the guise of "competency…

This paper considers the plight of Western education and the demands it makes upon us. It argues that the feared end of education underpins and unduly shackles reflection on the current crisis of education.

Cosmopolitan education has been much theorized, discussed, and proposed, but what exactly might it look like and what specific processes might it involve?

Knight, Kathleen Abowitz – Philosophical Inquiry in Education, 2018
Agonistic critiques of democratic theory conceptualize democracy as a site of conflict and struggle; as the fight against privatization escalates, these critiques become more relevant for educational governance. Public education governance has, in addition, increasingly been the site of conflicts between federal, state and local levels, as…
