Roof, David; Polush, Elena – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
This paper seeks to examine ethics, humanism, and the concept of "parrhesia" ("pa???s?a") in the context of educational research.

Mamlok, Dan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
The concept of freedom is one of the key ideas in political philosophy. In a liberal society one can do, live, and like whatever he/she pleases, but at the same time there are certain constraints on the individual that balance between one's desires and the common good.

Eastman, Nicholas J. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
Every public school teacher today is charged, above all else, with a utilitarian form of workforce preparation: college and career readiness. The distinction between college and career is superficial. The overarching goal of both is career readiness, and STEM careers are the darlings of the "readiness" discourse. Within the STEM reform…

Christopher, Justin – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
Narrative research is a commonly employed research methodology. In narrative research, researchers capture the testimony of their participants on a myriad of topics, e.g. how they feel about teaching or how they feel their ethnic background influences the way that they analyze concepts. Such testimony in narrative educational research commonly…

DeCesare, Tony – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
One of Amy Gutmann's important achievements in "Democratic Education" is her development of a "democratic interpretation of equal educational opportunity."

Anderson, Morgan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2016
Educational discourse, particularly since the advent of recent educational reform initiatives, has become saturated with a discourse of "high expectations." One can hardly hope to hold a conversation regarding the problems facing American schools without someone innocently remarking that of course students need to be held to "high…

Deane, Samantha – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
Through an analysis of school uniform policies and theories of social justice, Samantha Deane argues that school uniforms and their foregoing policies assume that confronting strangers--an imperative of living in a democratic polity--is something that requires seeing sameness instead of recognizing difference. Imbuing schooling with a directive…

Sinha, Shilpi – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
Color blind discourse often draws on sentiments such as, "When I look at you, I do not see color," or race should not matter since we are all human, we are all the same underneath. In other words, the desire to view others as individuals is often constituted on the back of the desire to understand the notion of the individual as one who…

Ozar, Ryan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
Contemporary practitioners of experiential learning look to John Dewey and other progressives for the foundation on which to interpret, design, and facilitate learning through experience. Although Dewey's theory of learning through experience was greatly influenced by other educational theorists and practitioners of the 18th and 19th centuries, by…

Mamlok, Dan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
The allegory of the cave illustrates one of the central problems in philosophy: the gap between reality as it appears to be and the reality in itself. The allegory of prisoners in the cave, as opposed to being free out of the cave, symbolizes the gap between illusion and truth--between the thing and the thing in itself. The moment of getting out…

Anderson, Morgan – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
Current educational discourse is rife with the phrase "critical thinking skills." The term is wielded with such indiscretion among educators, reformers, and education policy makers that is has become commonsensical to believe that imparting critical thinking skills is an indispensable aspect of education. For example, according to the…

Bolyard, Chloé – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
Gert Biesta contends that managerial accountability, which focuses on efficiency and competition, dominates the current political arena in education.

Hurley, Angela – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
In this article, Angela Hurley ponders a question centered on how well P-12 schooling experiences and the current accompanying education discourse on the importance of attending college actually match with traditional notions of the purposes of academic life held by college faculty. Does the current, performance data-driven system of P-12…

Fraser-Burgess, Sheron; Rodgers, Keri L. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
If a teacher instructs with greater attention to improving students' performance in order to protect her employment rather than solely to advance knowledge or character, is she acting immorally? This question has historical roots in Socrates's famed animosity toward the sophists. Socrates maintained that sophistic teaching was immoral because the…

Fitzgerald, Robert – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2015
The funding of public education in many states, especially Illinois, is characterized by inequity. The reality is that students across the state are subject to a disparity in fiscal resources between those attending schools in the wealthiest and poorest districts. The cause of this dilemma is threefold. First, Illinois has a school finance scheme…
