Cobb, Casey D. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
A robust body of geographic education policy research has been amassing over the past 25 years, as researchers from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds have recognized the value of examining education phenomena from a spatial perspective. In this chapter, I synthesize 42 studies that examine education issues using a geographic information…

Butler, Alisha; Sinclair, Kristin A. – Review of Research in Education, 2020
Place is an inescapable aspect of daily life and is intimately linked to our life experiences. An expanding body of research has investigated how place shapes the "geography of opportunity" as well as students', families', and stakeholders' experiences in and around schools. While researchers have begun to investigate the spatial context…

Gopalan, Maithreyi; Rosinger, Kelly; Ahn, Jee Bin – Review of Research in Education, 2020
In the past few decades, we have seen a rapid proliferation in the use of quasi-experimental research designs in education research. This trend, stemming in part from the "credibility revolution" in the social sciences, particularly economics, is notable along with the increasing use of randomized controlled trials in the strive toward…

Neri, Rebecca Colina; Lozano, Maritza; Gomez, Louis M. – Review of Research in Education, 2019
Despite evidence of promise, the adoption of culturally relevant educational (CRE) approaches to teaching and learning remains sporadic and underwhelming. In this chapter, we question this state of affairs by investigating teacher resistance to CRE. Through our examination of the literature, we have come to understand teacher resistance to CRE as…

Graham, Steve – Review of Research in Education, 2019
If students are to be successful in school, at work, and in their personal lives, they must learn to write. This requires that they receive adequate practice and instruction in writing, as this complex skill does not develop naturally. A basic goal of schooling then is to teach students to use this versatile tool effectively and flexibly. Many…

Peurach, Donald J.; Cohen, David K.; Yurkofsky, Maxwell M.; Spillane, James P. – Review of Research in Education, 2019
In the early 1990s, the logic and policies of systemic reform launched a press to coordinate the pursuit of excellence and equity in U.S. public education, with each other and with classroom instruction. There was little in that policy moment to predict that these reforms would sustain, and much to predict otherwise. Yet, nearly three decades…

Robert, Sarah A.; Yu, Min – Review of Research in Education, 2018
This review assesses intersectionality as a theoretical and methodological approach to transnational education policy research. In particular, we are concerned with how the concept is translated and interpreted to interrogate globally circulating education policies and how that transformation might inform the concept within Western and Northern…

Kramarczuk Voulgarides, Catherine; Fergus, Edward; King Thorius, Kathleen A. – Review of Research in Education, 2017
In the review, we examine what is known about disproportionality with the intention of informing the direction of policy and practice remedies. We outline the definition, contours, and characteristics of disproportionality and examine some of the prevailing explanations as to why the issue persists. We then pivot the review to consider how policy,…

Kohli, Rita; Pizarro, Marcos; Nevárez, Arturo – Review of Research in Education, 2017
While organizing efforts by movements such as Black Lives Matter and responses to the hate-filled policies and rhetoric of President Donald Trump are heightening public discourse of racism, much less attention is paid to mechanisms of racial oppression in the field of education. Instead, conceptualizations that allude to racial difference but are…

Baldridge, Bianca J.; Beck, Nathan; Medina, Juan Carlos; Reeves, Marlo A. – Review of Research in Education, 2017
Community-based educational spaces (CBES; afterschool programs, community-based youth organizations, etc.) have a long history of interrupting patterns of educational inequity and continue to do so under the current educational policy climate. The current climate of education, marked by neoliberal education restructuring, has left community-based…

Wells, Amy Stuart; Roda, Allison – Review of Research in Education, 2016
This chapter examines how the larger political context and policies enacted at different points in American history have affected the questions education researchers asked and answered. The authors argue that while education researchers are often quick to consider how their research should shape policy, they are less likely to contemplate the…
