Boxley, Simon – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
When we "learn nature," do we encounter her as 'free' in the sense of having neither cost nor price? Is she something 'given'? And is that which nature offers us 'gratis'?

Herman, David, Jr.; Kraehe, Amelia; Bartholomee, Lucy; Lewis, Tyson – Policy Futures in Education, 2017

But cities are not merely rows of buildings, or sets of laws, such as zoning ordinances or parking regulations. A city is, rather, a set of dynamic experiences that we all participate in as co(labor)ators. As a way…

Fischetti, John C.; Kirylo, James D. – Policy Futures in Education, 2014
The mishandling of pre- and post-Hurricane Katrina rescue and recovery is stunningly similar to the mishandling by those who have been in charge of Louisiana public education over the past seven years. This includes the devaluing of the teaching profession, the rise of the marketization of education, and the minimizing of the common good. In this…

Saeverot, Herner – Policy Futures in Education, 2013
This interview attempts to articulate what it might mean to speak for "Padagogik" in an era where new trends in education run the risk of marginalizing "Padagogik" as an independent academic discipline.
