Call for Papers

The John Dewey Society and The Journal of School & Society announce a special issue for public scholarship. What is the future of vocational education? Vocational education—once thought dead by many—is, by some accounts, back on the rise. The questions, then, are many. On the educational level, we can ask: What does a good k-12 vocational educational look like? What purposes should it serve? On the social level, we can ask questions as well: What role should businesses play in determining what our children learn in school? This special issue considers the future of vocational education.

We invite all those interested in engaged public scholarship to contribute to the special issue of The Journal of School & Society. We are looking for pieces from 3,000 to 5,000 words that address some aspect of the theme of the future of vocational education, broadly defined. Email submissions to Kyle Greenwalt, Editor of The Journal of School & Society and Associate Professor of Teacher Education at Michigan State University. Kyle’s email is

Submissions deadline: February 15, 2016.
