Du Bois on race and the political economy has led many of his readers to misunderstand and underestimate his additional important contributions to and perspectives on education.

Núñez, Anne-Marie – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
Advancing the educational success of the Latinx population can significantly affect overall postsecondary attainment since Latinxs comprise the largest and fastest growing non-White population in the country yet historically have among the lowest rates of postsecondary attainment (Kelly, Schneider, & Carey, 2010).

Tieken, Mara Casey – American Educational Research Journal, 2017

These strengths-oriented, locally driven…

Controversy surrounding the role of non-English languages in American education has a long history.

This article is a commentary on "Unwrapping the Suburban "Package Deal": Race, Class, and School Access," by Anna Rhodes and Siri Warkentien.

Orfield, Gary – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
The article ''Transforming Educational Experiences in Low-Income Communities'' analyzes the efforts of a highly impoverished small elementary school to provide the kind of wrap-around services children in very poor communities need to give them a fair chance to succeed.

Timothy San Pedro and Valerie Kinloch are among a powerful cohort of scholars who are pushing the ontological boundaries surrounding how we think about the conduct of educational research.

Anderson, James – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
The Centennial article by Ruben Donato and Jarrod Hanson demonstrates the critical importance of writing the history of America's variegated ethnicity not only for a comprehensive understanding of the past but also to inform future struggles to overturn segregation and inequality in America's schools (see e.g., Ball, 2006).

Blokhuis, Jason C. – American Educational Research Journal, 2008
If the notion of public and private spheres seems somehow quaint or old-fashioned, the distinction between public and private corporations will be that much more obscure. Yet Channel One broadcasts in a public school classroom are indisputably the result of a contract between a private corporation (Alloy Media + Marketing) and a public corporation…

Levinson, Martin P. – American Educational Research Journal, 2007
The attribution of low literacy levels among Gypsy children to difficulties of access to schools neglects underlying sociocultural explanations.

Informed by new literacy theory and by the discourse of previous ethnographic studies,…
