Joy Dangora Erickson; Winston C. Thompson – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2023
Justice issues in early childhood education contexts abound; these include substandard developmental opportunities and resource inequalities that disproportionately affect marginalized communities.

Martha Perez-Mugg – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2023
Recent polling shows a marked increase in public distrust towards institutions and fellow citizens in the United States.

Thomas Falk – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2023
According to Thomas Falk, an authoritarian insurgency against the institutions of liberal democracy operates along both political-economic and phenomenological axes.

Bryan Warnick – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2023
The idea that children need to be exposed to stories of patriotic heroes has again surfaced in recent legislative activity surrounding education. Often, this impulse aligns with a conservative, moralizing vision of teaching history: the flaws of past historical figures should be minimized for the purposes of national pride and traditional virtues.…

Kenneth Driggers; Abbey Hortenstine – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2023
Recent legislation restricting the topics teachers may discuss with students raises the issue of what role the teacher should play in society. We argue that this legislative scrutiny of teachers is symptomatic of an aversion to defining what a teacher is. We argue that, though a reluctance to provide an explicit definition of "teacher"…

The efficacy of tabletop role-playing games (RPGs) as an educational and therapeutic asset in schools has been extensively studied, with many middle and high schools employing these games as extracurricular activities because of their positive impact around identity formation, empathy, and social skills.

Briand, Casey – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2022
Teachers should be connected to, not alienated from, the philosophical underpinnings of their work. Teachers who understand themselves to be philosophers of education, and who see their work as both practical "and" philosophical in nature, may be empowered with an additional foundational and theoretical "tool" to use both in…

Barczak, Timothy J. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2022
The ability to think critically is a defining characteristic of humanity, setting humans apart from the rest of the animal kingdom. To perceive future consequences of an action, idea, or decision and then adjust these actions, ideas, and decisions accordingly is an integral part of existing as conscious beings in the world. Moreover, critical…

Smith, Spencer J. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2022
Teacher educators have been investigating ways to rob the demographic mismatch of this disempowering history. How can white preservice teachers be prepared to do meaningful work with communities of color? Scholars have been skeptical of the ability of white teachers to become fully culturally relevant. Aaron Schutz worries when teachers with…

Scussel, Erin C.; Boyles, Deron – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2022
While the study of ignorance is nothing new to philosophy, this article explores the origin and production of ignorance in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic. The authors link the question of a pandemic of ignorance to state education laws and policies that arguably manufacture ignorance. Their purpose is not to create a sense of paranoia or lead…

Wenneborg, Emily G. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2022
Education for pluralism--for living well with others in the midst of deep, inescapable differences--is a significant concern for philosophy of education. In this paper, the author draws the attention of philosophers of education to the resources for educating for pluralism that can be found in an altogether unexpected site: the liturgical…

Schutz, Aaron – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2022
Educational theory has tended to avoid discussions of how the less powerful might come together to contest oppression. Yet strategies for collective action are learned practices, like any others. While there are no "rules" for social action, different traditions provide useful "rules of thumb." This article lays out some core…

Geis, Paul – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2021
While its purported aims are noble, the field of study abroad -- or education abroad as it is increasingly known -- is not immune from, and indeed embraces, discourses and practices that are, to use Gert Biesta's term, "learnified." Biesta defines learnification as "the translation of everything there is to say about education in…
