We then pivot the review to consider how policy,…

Kohli, Rita; Pizarro, Marcos; Nevárez, Arturo – Review of Research in Education, 2017
While organizing efforts by movements such as Black Lives Matter and responses to the hate-filled policies and rhetoric of President Donald Trump are heightening public discourse of racism, much less attention is paid to mechanisms of racial oppression in the field of education. Instead, conceptualizations that allude to racial difference but are…

Wells, Amy Stuart; Roda, Allison – Review of Research in Education, 2016

Beadie, Nancy – Review of Research in Education, 2016
Studies of the rise of social science research in education typically focus on the Progressive Era, from 1890 to 1930, the period in which the American Educational Research Association (AERA) was founded. As central as this story is to the intellectual history of education as a field, however, it obscures an earlier set of events that arguably is…

Gamson, David A.; Hodge, Emily M. – Review of Research in Education, 2016
Despite decades of critiques and scores of innovations designed to abolish or weaken it, the school district remains a central institution of the American educational system.

Macías, Reynaldo F. – Review of Research in Education, 2014
The status of a language is very often described and measured by different factors, including the length of time it has been in use in a particular territory, the official recognition it has been given by governmental units, and the number and proportion of speakers. Spanish has a unique history and, so some argue status, in the contemporary…

Sefton-Green, Julian – Review of Research in Education, 2006
This chapter begins with a scenario contrasting two seemingly different images of child and media from before and after the "digital revolution." The author argues that there is much greater continuity in how this relationship has been conceptualized over the period than is commonly imagined. While not offering a comprehensive study of recent…

The…

In January 2002, Republican President George W. Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, the reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) of 1965. The most conservative congressional Republicans, who opposed the bill's extensive new testing mandates and absence of school voucher provisions, were largely left out in…

Lewis, Karla C. – Review of Research in Education, 2005
Instructional aides were formally introduced to classrooms more than 40 years ago, but their jobs have changed over time. Instructional aides do more than prepare materials for teachers and monitor the lunchroom; they provide direct services to students. Most instructional aides care about their jobs and the students they work with, and sometimes…
