Issue #5: Are we really ‘bout that life’?: Urban educators as activists in, and for, their urban school communities

The aim of this special issue of the Journal of School & Society is to explore and unpack the role of urban teachers as community advocates for social justice.  As people working to ensure a more equitable urban society, this issue seeks to better understand how you believe urban educators can assist residents in their community- based struggles. What does authentic partnership look like? What would the outcomes be if urban educators fought alongside urban residents? What promise does such educator-resident hold?

Please see our journal website for specifics about submission requirements. Submissions and inquiries should be emailed to Keith Benson, Guest Editor of The Journal of School & Society and Secondary Educator at Camden High School in Camden, New Jersey.

Call for Papers: Creative Democracy – The Task Before Us Today

The John Dewey Society calls for paper proposals for its panel on Dewey and Philosophy (formerly called the Past Presidents’ Panel), to be held at its annual meeting, in conjunction with the American Educational Research Association meeting in San Antonio, Texas on April 27 – May 1, 2017.

What are the challenges to a vibrant and healthy democratic life? In an essay late in life, Creative Democracy – The Task Before Us1, Dewey calls upon us to not take democratic life for granted. More than a political institution, Dewey sees democracy as dependent upon family, friendship, the economy, and other parts of the fabric of civil society. Today in many countries, institutions of democracy, in particular public schools, are challenged by growing inequality, mistrust of the other, and poverty. It is a time to return to Dewey’s text to consider how democratic life can be fostered amidst these challenges.

Due: November 15, 2016
