Ford, Timothy G.; Lavigne, Alyson L.; Fiegener, Ashlyn M.; Si, Shouqing – Review of Educational Research, 2020
As an intermediary between U.S. state and federal policy and the school, the school district, many scholars maintain, remains a key player in meeting the needs of school-level leadership.

Cumming, Michelle M.; Bettini, Elizabeth; Pham, Andy V.; Park, Jeeyun – Review of Educational Research, 2020
Executive functioning (EF) is key to students' school and lifelong success and reflects both genetic predisposition and sensitivity to negative and positive experiences.

In this article, we review research literature concerning number sense from several related fields. Whereas other authors have pointed to difficulty defining number sense or to some degree of inconsistency in the literature, we argue instead that this is a case of polysemy: three constructs given the same name. Our purpose is to clarify the…
