Garrison, Mark J. – Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, 2011
Education "reform" is unfolding at an unprecedented rate, with little public input.

Patterson, Leslie; Baldwin, Shelia; Araujo, Juan; Shearer, Ragina; Stewart, Mary Amanda – Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, 2010
This paper argues that educators interested in sustainability should look to complexity science for guiding principles. When we view our classrooms and campuses as living, dynamic ecologies, we can, as insiders, make sense of what might otherwise seem chaotic or meaningless.

Corbett, Michael – Journal of Inquiry and Action in Education, 2010

This feeds into a persistent mythology of a racially…
