Critical Questions in Education

(ISSN 2327-3607)

An open access online journal devoted to the critical examination of educational policy and practice from a foundations perspective

Aim and ScopeCritical Questions in Education is sponsored by the Academy for Educational Studies.  The aim of this national double blind peer-reviewed on-line journal is to provide educators at all levels a space in which timely or timeless questions about educational policy and practice might be addressed.  More particularly, Critical Questions in Education invites manuscripts that critically address issues of policy and practice from a generally foundational perspective including, but not limited to, economic, historical, pedagogical, philosophical, psychological, and sociological analyses.   In addition to original manuscripts, we also invite critical reviews of newly published books and films that address critical educational issues. See the Instructions for Authors page for details.

The types of questions we hope to address in this journal mirror the theme questions of our last several Academy conferences: Has Higher Education Lost its Soul?  What Ideas in Education are Worth Keeping? Should Public Schools be Radically Reformed? What should the Role of Religion be in 21st-Century Public Schools? & Why do Kids Hate School?  We hope that this online journal will be a regularly visited public space that will foment debate, discussion, and action well beyond the walls of academe.
