Craig, Jeffrey – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2018
In this article, I consider the question: why did numeracy become a relevant and sensible thing to consider in mathematics education? I historicize the numeracy discourse by writing a genealogy of how the concept of "numeracy" emerged in scholarship, with a focus on the USA. I argue that numeracy descends from three mathematics education…

Ingman, Benjamin C.; McConnell Moroye, Christy – Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, 2019
Educational objectives focus practice and dictate what happens in US classrooms.

Kidron, Ivy – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016
A theoretical reflection on epistemology is presented. The important role of epistemological analysis in research in mathematics education is discussed.

Knoester, Matthew; Parkison, Paul – Educational Studies: Journal of the American Educational Studies Association, 2017
In this study, we examine how the standardizing effects of federal and state education policies in the United States reflect particular ways of understanding the structure and function of education and schooling. This understanding impacts how policies affect schools and those who work and depend upon them. We argue that the disparity between how…

Increasingly over the past 50 years, the mission statement of schooling in dominant US-American discourse has coalesced around a "Great Equalizer" narrative of education; that is, it has identified schools as the primary means through which individuals can achieve social mobility. In this article, I employ a Gramscian framework to…
