Geis, Paul J. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
David Blacker points to a problematic decline in personal freedoms, including student speech rights: "[A]s the 'educational mission' of schools moves ineluctably even further toward warehousing and surveillance--pre-jail--then remaining intra-institutional speech rights will easily be quashed." Critical of the elastic conception of…

Buethe, John – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
John Buethe draws upon the Netflix series "Stranger Things" and develops this paper's ideas by using it as an allegory for and education towards subjectivity along lines suggested by Gert Biesta in "The Beautiful Risk of Education", and Jaeggi in her work, "Alienation." Buethe observes that the show places a wager on…

Zipory, Oded – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
This paper tries to explain the author's own curious and bothersome failure to see. About ten years ago, he lived in a small apartment in Tel Aviv, Israel just a few minutes walking distance from the beach. The short road from his apartment went up a small hill and through a laid-back park filled with tourists, local families, surfers, dog owners…

Schultz, Annie – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
This case points to the problem of the gendered precariousness of academia. While "a casual observer of academic environments might come to the conclusion that women's problems in higher education have been solved," a second look reveals that "while women in positions of power and authority on American campuses have increased, they…

Oral, Sevket Benhur – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Education as a domain of conceptual activity and a field of scientific/scholarly research needs to address the movement from the traumatized subject to subject-as-trauma. This movement and the concomitant conceptual shift in how we ought to understand the subject correspond, in the domain of education, to the "radicalization" of what…

Beckett, Kelvin S. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Following the pioneering work of Randy Garrison and colleagues, online teachers in the US and internationally see their discussion boards as communities of inquiry (CoI) which promote sustained communication and higher-level learning. The CoI approach to online discussions is based on John Dewey's conception of education in which teachers and…

Smith, Spencer J. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Philosophers of education have long contemplated how the normative charge of education might include disruption of the status quo. Thinking about our work as being in battle with the status quo, though, is problematic. Partly, the author agrees with thinkers like George S. Counts that education can be a vehicle for social reconstruction. But he is…

Gottlieb, Derek – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
The ongoing attempts to measure educational quality, to hold schools responsible for their performance against these measures, and to use the resulting data to design improvement initiatives have yet to yield the promised results. A universal definition of "good education" seems to elude our grasp. Despite broad public support for…

McCloud, Jennifer; Hurley, Angela – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
The fear of school violence drives "defensive" schooling policies, and it is not unlike the fear that currently supports aggressive foreign policies that sanction drone strikes and the incarceration of suspected terrorists. However, the current measures taken for defense against terrorism are not working, and the same types of…

Logue, Jennifer – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
Lacan once remarked that there was "something quite ironic about Christ's injunction to love thy neighbor as thyself because, actually, people hate themselves." Can Lacan's observation about our loving and hating our neighbors the way we love and hate ourselves help us to make sense of ongoing, almost incomprehensible suffering, the rise…

Brindley, Meghan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2019
The concept of educational questions has often been taken up topically, or as a related component to topics within philosophy of education. The rabbit hole approach provides a new perspective for attempting to discover the characteristics of educational questions and to engage with six authors, Biestra, Bingham, LeGrange, Andreotti, Saeverot and…

Nikolaidis, A. C. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2018
An important and yet unresolved question has concerned the educational community for generations: what is the role of student agency and how do educators take it into account? Traditionalists claim that students are incapable of true agency, not knowing where their interests lie yet, while progressivists argue that the students are the most…

Boyles, Deron; Kline, Kip – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2018
Schools continue to purchase and install machines and practices from the world of communications technology. In turn, students and teachers are purported to be more "connected," and this connectivity is widely viewed as having a positive influence on teaching and learning. In this paper, however, the authors argue that not only are these…

Joyner, Karl – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2018
In this paper, the author argues that the theoretical groundings of code-switching are flawed, in that they rely on a flawed understanding of language. For code-switching to function as described by sociologists and educators, language would have to be a skill--and particular languages and dialects to be discrete subsets of this skill--to be…

Novakowski, Julia – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2018
In the 2011-2012 school year, the teaching population was 82% white, a percentage that has barely changed in over two decades despite significant changes in the diversity of the student body. Considering this gap, as the demographics of students transform and representation in teaching remains largely homogenous, a conversation on pluralism and…
