Kruger-Ross, Matthew – Critical Questions in Education, 2019
The severity of the challenges made to traditionally and historically accepted understandings of truth, what is true, what is false and "fake," and even what is real, continues unabated in American public discourse.

den Heyer, Kent – Canadian Social Studies, 2018
[W]hen I hear people denounce our political scene as "post-truth," I have to wonder when exactly they think it was that politics was determined by the truth? The same goes for those who decry today's "fake news." […]To claim that with Trump's election we've entered a post-truth era of fake news is to claim that the U.S. was…

Van Cleave, Jessica – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2018
In this article, I explore the tension between the current political context in which science needs defending against anti-intellectualism and outright assaults on evidence as a means of decision-making on the one hand and the overzealous scientism that can result from backlash against a perceived lack of rigor in various forms of inquiry. To do…

Ogar, Joseph N.; Anyim, Nwachukwu M.; Ogar, Tom E. – African Educational Research Journal, 2016

Cognitivists are not united on the foundation of knowledge but they agree that knowledge is possible as against the skeptics. Intuitionism is a cognitive theory which states that knowledge is attainable through the…

Lynskey, Angela Cartwright – Educational Foundations, 2015
Demographics of public schools, in which minority students now make up the majority of the student body while the teaching force continues to be mostly White, indicate that many pre-service teachers will need significant training if they are to be prepared for the challenging task of filling knowledge gaps, interrogating dominant assumptions, and…

Giroux, Henry A. – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
This article describes America's descent into madness under the regime of neoliberalism that has emerged in the United States since the late 1970s.

Higgins, Chris – Asia Pacific Education Review, 2014
In "The Humanist Moment," Chris Higgins sets out to recover a tenable, living humanism, rejecting both the version vilified by the anti-humanists and the one sentimentalized by the reactionary nostalgists. Rescuing humanism from such polemics is only the first step, as we find at least nine rival, contemporary definitions of humanism.…
