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…

Covaleskie, John F. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2014
Until relatively recently, college was for only the few, and only loosely related to economic success.

Few attended college in the hope of economic advancement in…

Jalbert, John E. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2009
One cannot promote liberal education and ignore the fundamental tension that exists between leisure and utility. "To aim at utility everywhere," Aristotle writes, "is utterly unbecoming to high-minded and liberal spirits." Thus, the author's plea for leisure, for "uselessness," is a plea for the revitalization of liberal education. The purpose of…

Mathematics education discourse routinely promotes the idea that mathematics is everywhere. That mathematics is everywhere seems a reasonable implication of "We all use math everyday." Modern technology, mostly in the form of computational devices and control systems, is often cited as evidence of the omnipresence of mathematics.…

In this article, the author is asking that teacher educators respond to two papers that recommend political activity.

It is time-consuming, exhausting, and at times depressing. It is also…
