Lamboy, Lily; Taylor, Ashley; Thompson, Winston – Theory and Research in Education, 2020
In this article, we explore the interrelated phenomena of teachers' paternalistic aims and their misattributions of the agency of their students within particular schooling contexts of systemic racial injustice in the United States. We argue that, because teachers in these contexts assess agency in patterned, predictable ways that stem from -- and…

Curren, Randall – Theory and Research in Education, 2020
This article addresses the ethical and motivational dimensions of punishment in schools, focusing on the idea of a just school community. Lawrence Kohlberg's account of a just school community is examined and systematically revised to reflect advances in psychology and a more adequate conceptualization of justice. A eudaimonic conception of…

Warnick, Bryan R.; Scribner, Campbell F. – Theory and Research in Education, 2020
The following article surveys changes to school punishment in the United States over the past century -- particularly, the rise of exclusionary methods and the school-to-prison pipeline -- to argue that prevailing disciplinary techniques are out of step with the developmental ethos of education and the principles of democratic oversight. To remedy…

Hand, Michael – Theory and Research in Education, 2020
The question of the necessity of school punishment was raised, but not satisfactorily answered, in an exchange some time ago between John Wilson and James Marshall. Wilson argued that social interaction in schools must be governed by rules and that rules only exist if violations of them are normally punished. Marshall objected that there are some…

Tillson, John; Oxley, Laura – Theory and Research in Education, 2020
This article argues that uses of exclusion by schools in the United Kingdom (UK) often violate children's moral rights. It contends that while exclusion is not inherently incompatible with children's moral rights, current practice must be reformed to align with them. It concludes that as a non-punitive preventive measure, there may be certain…

Sarajlic, Eldar – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
In this article, I address the relation between children's authentic identity development and homeschooling. I show the limitations of claims that homeschooling protects children's authenticity. I argue that the aim of homeschooling is the reproduction of parental beliefs and culture, which is inimical to the development of authentic children's…

Beese, Elizabeth Brott – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
This article proposes that educational personalization may be usefully understood from a process perspective. It defines educational personalization as that which occurs within any "planning or decision-making process" which runs for one student at a time, and uses "information from or about individual students," in order to…

Kotsonis, Alkis – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
The vast majority of contemporary scholars working in intellectual character education endeavor to identify those elements that render an educational program reliably successful at fostering the growth of intellectual excellences in students. In this article, I adopt an opposite perspective: I examine potential reasons as to why virtue-based…

Cantu, Gerald C. – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Secondary education schools in the United States routinely distribute differential educational provisions to students through a widely implemented tracking system. This article aims to show that this tracking system is unjust. It begins with a characterization of the tracking system as it is typically implemented in the United States, and its…

Maxwell, Bruce; Waddington, David I.; McDonough, Kevin – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Why do society and the courts so readily recognize university and college teachers' academic freedom but just as readily deny primary and secondary school teachers the same right? To investigate this question, this article considers teachers' work in light of the standard justifications for granting academic freedom in higher education: that…

Marshall, Mason – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Despite how revered Socrates is among many educators nowadays, he can seem in the end to be a poor model for them, particularly because of how often he refutes his interlocutors and poses leading questions. As critics have noted, refuting people can turn them away from inquiry instead of drawing them in, and being too directive with them can…

Felder, Franziska – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Accounts of inclusive education that locate the concept of inclusion within theories of individual rights face two problems. The first problem, called 'the dilemma of identity', assumes that on one hand we need communities to develop and ensure a sense of identity and a feeling of social inclusion, whereas on the other hand, inclusion is only…

Wareham, Ruth J. – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
In this article, I illuminate ongoing debates about the normative status of indoctrination via close examination of recent work in the philosophy of psychiatry and, more particularly, delusion. Here it has been argued, contrary to the established view that delusional states of mind are epistemically problematic, that delusions can (at least under…

Goodman, Joan F.; Cook, Britiny Iris – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
Children in schools are often shamed, at times intentionally, sometimes inadvertently. The question we pose is whether this practice violates their fundamental human rights, in particular that of freedom. Arguably, because of their limited capacities and dependent status what children require is protection rather than rights. Yet, children are not…

Easton, Christina Elizabeth – Theory and Research in Education, 2019
This article is a reply to Matthew Clayton and David Stephens's 2018 article 'What is the point of religious education?' (see EJ1173708). I begin by problematising the 'acceptability requirement' used to justify the authors' conclusions. I then disambiguate the key claim made in the article. If interpreted broadly, as an attack on curricula that…
