The Journal of Educational Controversy has issued a call for papers related to Black Lives Matter And The Education Industrial Complex

Along with drawing attention to the police as occupying armies in Black American communities, the Black Lives Matter movement has highlighted the deep roots of institutionalized racism in the United States. Starting with the fundamental question, Do Black Lives Matter in the U.S. Education Industrial Complex?, this issue of the Journal of Educational Controversy seeks to explore the various questions raised by Black Lives Matter in relation to U.S. educational institutions, policies, and practices as they impact men, women, and children of color intersectionally, with respect to gender, gender identity, and class. These questions could include the status of schools as institutions of control and sites of reproduction of racist ideology; the possibility of schools as sites of liberationist transformation; the institutional history of schools alongside the development of institutional racism; the institutional response of schools to incidents of racial violence; the history of black studies programs in relation to black liberation movements, and the appropriation and sanitizing of terms like diversity and multiculturalism.

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.
