McKinney de Royston, Maxine – Theory Into Practice, 2020
Black women educators have a legacy of political clarity about teaching and learning as well as about anti-Black racism. Scholarship on Black women teachers has begun to map out this political clarity (e.g), yet is continually at risk of being devalued and deintellectualized in an educational era that privileges universalist and reductivist…

The Bilingual Education Act was passed in 1968 to address the challenges faced by emerging bilingual students in U.S. schools.

Cusick, Philip A. – Theory Into Practice, 2014
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) and Race to the Top (RTTT) are part of a widely heralded and visible change effort, providing a powerful force--replete with evidence, logic, money, and voice--that is changing public schooling away from locally run and state-subsidized, into a federal-state-controlled enterprise. The article begins by situating the…

Hoyle, John R.; Kutka, Timothy M. – Theory Into Practice, 2008
Futurists, policy makers, and other stakeholders propose sweeping reforms of the American education system.
