Houston, Akil – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2011
This article focuses on developing a progressive philosophy of praxis that challenges, what the author argues is, a post-racial resistance to teaching about racial injustice. Post-racial resistance to teaching can lead to forms of enlightened racism and sexism in the classroom. In this essay, the author develops and extends the use of the metaphor…

Welsh, Benjamin H. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2011
The author's sixth grade teacher, Mrs. Hunter, showed him that adults who held positions of power over children could be duplicitous.

On top of the established threat of being paddled arbitrarily, Mrs. Hunter started to humiliate him in front of…

Fitch, Frank – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
John Dewey defines democracy as a form of associated living "in which the interests of a group are shared by all its members, and the fullness and freedom with which it interacts with other groups." Few would argue that people with disabilities have been among the most excluded, the least able to share in the fullness and freedom of "associated…

Abowitz, Kathleen Knight – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
In the last decade, educational researchers and scholars have turned new attention to the theory and practice of community organizing as a method for addressing education injustices. While there are diverse traditions of community organizing work, by far the most influential model in US contexts is that of Saul Alinsky, whose "Rules for Radicals"…

Falk, Thomas – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
Critical scholarship frequently depicts literacy education as an "initiation into passivity." Disconnected from the lives of students and reduced to strategies for scoring points on tests, literacy becomes an exercise in the reproduction of a moral economy of discipline, compliance, and productivity. Yet people also recognize that the modern world…

Watras, Joseph – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
The term "globalization" is relatively new. Alfred E. Eckes, Jr. and Thomas W. Zeiler credit Theodore Levitt for coining the word in 1983 in an article in the Harvard Business Review. In a short time, other authors adopted the term. Thomas Freidman, for example, used the phrase to define the 1990s. Freidman claimed that the world had entered a new…

Johnson, Benjamin Ashby – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
Corporate business practices among leaders of higher education have increasingly come under fire during the last two decades.

Eliot, two prominent early…

Stemhagen, Kurt; Warnick, Bryan R. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
The debate rages on between those who endorse scientific standards for educational research--scientifically based research (SBR)--and those who see such a characterization of the research endeavor as unduly narrow and rigid. One unresolved question in this debate involves the place of inquiry that does not aim to produce generalizable knowledge,…

Osgood, Robert L. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
The year was 1909. The United States was in the throes of tremendous social and institutional changes: a rapidly diversifying population, dramatic shifts in political and economic structures, the rise of Progressivism as a paradigm for social reform and social control, and the intense and often grating sounds of a public education system really…

Welsh, Benjamin H. – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
The contradiction between the concept of equality found in the Declaration of Independence and that found in U.S. Constitution led the author to question what the Constitution had to say about education. After all, Montesquieu (1689-1755), a French "philosophe" whose work heavily influenced Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and the U.S.…

Novak, Bruce – Philosophical Studies in Education, 2010
In this paper, the author outlines what No Child Left Behind policy might mean first in personal then in philosophical terms. First, the author will trace a bit of Obama's own educational development: how he was first set on a personal educational journey and how, proceeding along with that journey, he eventually came to successfully elicit…
