The Journal of School & Society is committed to knowledge-production, but we approach this task from a uniquely Deweyan point of view. The journal is a space for free interchanges among scholar-practitioners towards the development of knowledge which can provide direction and meaning for educational projects, contexts and classrooms of all kinds. We welcome your contributions to this space and mission.


Call for Papers

The John Dewey Society and The Journal of School & Society announce: A Call for Public Scholarship: 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 submission requirements here. 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. Keith’s email is keith.benson@gse.rutgers.edu.

Due: February 1, 2017
