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…

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…

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.

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…

Metro-Roland, Dini – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2018
Kevin Gary, President of the Ohio Valley Philosophy of Education Society, argues that the standard conception of a liberal education espoused by sociologist Max Weber and the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AACU) is built on the illusions of personal autonomy, critical thought, and liberal neutrality. Gary turns to the wisdom…

Gary, Kevin – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2018
Sociologist Zygmunt Bauman characterizes this era as a time of "liquid modernity." Rather than settled meanings, categories, and frames of reference, Bauman contends that meaning is always in flux, open-ended rather than closed. This flux is in large part driven and exacerbated by a culture of consumerism. This phenomenology of the…

Novakowski, Julia T. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
In this essay, the author proposes that the field of Philosophy of Education is in search of its own second wind and can find guidance in the work and life of William James.

Covaleskie, John – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
In this article, John Covaleskie briefly sketches a set of interlocking propositions about democratic education.

Pickup, Austin – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
In this article, Austin Pickup centers Foucault's concept of "problematization" as an important methodological tool for displacing neoliberalism from its stable perch atop a perceived absence of other possibilities. According to Pickup, the genealogical analysis envisaged and practiced by Foucault opens up new avenues by indicating not…

Humphrey, David – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2017
The words of W. E. B. Du Bois, in his widely-acclaimed work" The Souls of Black Folk," that "the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the color-line" were a visceral attempt to illuminate the plight of the "Negro" in the United States of America. With this phrase, Du Bois positioned racial valorizations…
