Author: John M Novak
Author: William W Purkey
Author: Joan R Fretz
Abstract: Over 400 schools throughout the world have adopted Invitational Education to foster innovative thinking, sustained positive action, and the creation of socially and emotionally safe schools. As educators are now involved in an epic rethinking of what they do and how they do it, Developing Inviting Schools provides a dependable guide for improvement. Written by two of the creators of the Inviting Schools movement—Purkey and Novak—along with Joan Fretz, who works with public schools, this book updates and extends the construct of invitational learning to assist today’s teachers and leaders.

Developing Trauma-Responsive Approaches to Student Discipline: A Guide to Trauma-Informed Practice in PreK-12 Schools

Author: Kirk Eggleston
Author: Erinn J. Green
Author: Shawn Abel
Author: Stephanie Poe
Author: Charol Shakeshaft
Abstract:

Building on comprehensive research conducted in US schools, this accessible volume offers an effective model of school leadership to develop and implement school-wide, trauma-responsive approaches to student discipline. Recognizing that challenging student behaviours are often rooted in early experiences of trauma, the volume builds on a model from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) to walk readers through the processes of realizing, recognizing, responding to, and resisting the impacts of trauma in school contexts. Research and interviews model an educational reform process and explain how a range of differentiated interventions including Positive Behaviour Interventions and Supports (PBIS), social-emotional learning (SEL), restorative justice, and family engagement can be used to boost student resilience and pro-social behaviour. Practical steps are supported by current theory, resources, and stories of implementation from superintendents, principals, and teachers.

Dimensões da privatização da educação básica no Brasil: Um diálogo com a produção acadêmica a partir de 1990

Author: Theresa Maria de Freitas Adrião
Abstract:

O livro busca caracterizar e analisar as dimensões da privatização da educação básica como resultado de pesquisa bibliográfica modalidade Estado da Arte. Afirmamos que a presença do setor privado na educação, apesar de "tradicional" e historicamente constitutivo da educação brasileira, como ademais da educação ibérica, altera-se e amplia-se a partir de meados dos anos 1990. Seja pelo aumento das matrículas privadas, seja pela incidência de organizações e empresas privadas propondo novas formas de privatização da educação básica. Em todo o mundo, a delegação de dimensões da educação pública para o setor privado intensifica-se a partir dos anos 1970, em decorrência de alterações no padrão de intervenção estatal relacionadas ao ideário neoliberal e, ais recentemente, da financeirização da economia. Parte-se do pressuposto que esses processos têm como consequência a “transmutação” de direitos em mercadorias e induzem disputas por fundos públicos (governamentais) e privados (de entidades não lucrativas e famílias) assentadas na disseminação de ideologias de “escolha” e de ineficiência da gestão pública No Brasil, esses elementos associaram-se a processos localmente constituídos: descentralização da educação para os municípios e alterações na gestão pública, decorrentes da Emenda Constitucional n° 19, de 04 de junho de 1998 e da Lei Complementar n° 101, de 04 de maio de 2000.

DisCrit Expanded Reverberations, Ruptures, and Inquiries

Editor: Subini A. Annamma
Editor: Beth A. Ferri
Editor: David J. Connor
Abstract: This sequel to the influential 2016 work DisCrit—Disability Studies and Critical Race Theory in Education explores how DisCrit has both deepened and expanded, providing increasingly nuanced understandings about how racism and ableism circulate across geographic borders, academic disciplines, multiplicative identities, intersecting oppressions, and individual and cultural resistances. Following an incisive foreword by DisCrit intellectual forerunner Alfredo Artiles, a diverse group of authors engage in inward, outward, and margin-to-margin analyses that raise deep and enduring questions about how we as scholars and teachers account for and counteract the collusive nature of oppressions faced by minoritized individuals with disabilities, particularly in educational contexts. Contributors ask readers to consider incisive questions such as: What are the affordances and constraints of DisCrit as it travels outside of U.S. contexts? How can DisCrit, as a critical and intersectional framework, be used to support and extend diverse forms of activism, expanded solidarities, and collective resistance? How can DisCrit inform and be augmented by engagements with other critical theories and modes of inquiry? How can DisCrit help to illuminate agency and resistance among learners with complex learning needs? How might DisCrit inform legal studies and other disciplinary and interdisciplinary contexts? How can DisCrit be a critical friend to interrogations involving issues of citizenship, language, and more?

Educação e gestão neoliberal: A escola cooperativa de Maringá: Uma experiência de charter school?

Author: Mario Azevedo Neves
Abstract:

Este livro tem como objetivo principal tratar sobre a “Escola Cooperativa de Maringá”, uma experiência de privatização do ensino público havida nos anos de 1991 e 1992 no Município de Maringá, Estado do Paraná. Vale destacar que, sob o lema “administração liberal”, a gestão municipal, nos documentos oficiais, declarava que a “escola cooperativa”, um eufemismo para tentar mitigar a inequívoca privatização das escolas públicas municipais, era uma escola com “ensino público e gratuito com microgestão privada”. O livro analisa o liberalismo e as presumíveis raízes históricas do neoliberalismo e suas implicações no campo da educação. O livro está estruturado em cinco capítulos: 1. CHARTER SCHOOL E ESCOLA COOPERATIVA DE MARINGÁ 2. LIBERALISMO, NEOLIBERALISMO E EDUCAÇÃO 3. TEORIA DO CAPITAL HUMANO, BEM PÚBLICO E MERCADORIZAÇÃO DA EDUCAÇÃO 4. CERTAS COISAS D’O CAPITAL (E ALGO MAIS – OU MENOS – SOBRE O NEOLIBERALISMO) 5. QUESTÕES DO ESTADO E O ESTADO EM QUESTÃO O prefácio foi escrito pelo professor Paolo Nosella (UFSCar) e o posfácio pelo professor Afrânio Catani (USP).

Educating the Top 100 Percent Policy Pathways for Public Higher Education

Author: Stephen G. Katsinas
Author: Nathaniel J. Bray
Author: Matha J. Kanter
Abstract: Educating the Top 100 Percent assesses the decline of higher education funding and offers ambitious policy recommendations to restore the possibility of accessible, affordable education for all. Stephen G. Katsinas, Nathaniel J. Bray, and Martha J. Kanter probe the complex interplay of federal, state, and local policies and illustrate how government actions have, over time, contributed to the long-term slide of US educational attainment. Declining federal and state funding of public higher education has forced institutions to revise their financial models, passing costs directly through to students, to the detriment of prospective students—and the nation. Experts in education policy, the authors point out how the unintended consequences of today's funding model deny an ever-increasing portion of the population important educational and professional opportunities.
By providing context for how we arrived at this financial conundrum and analyzing robust quantitative data from national sources, Katsinas and his colleagues offer pragmatic, sustainable, and stable policy options for educating all Americans. The authors provide innovative ideas, key lessons learned, and actionable proposals to fund public higher education. Their top-down federal and bottom-up local and state policy solutions aim to rectify  plummeting high school-to-college continuation and college graduation rates. As a result, they present a vision of a brighter economic, cultural, and civic future for educating all Americans.

Educational Leadership for Social Justice and Improving High-Needs Schools: Findings from 10 Years of International Collaboration

Editor: Bruce G. Barnett
Editor: Philip A. Woods
Abstract: To commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the International School Leadership Development Network (ISLDN), this book is a compilation of the work conducted by network scholars. This volume is the first comprehensive overview of the studies conducted by ISLDN members engaged in examining how social justice leaders and leaders of high-needs schools address the social conditions, learning experiences, and performance of their students. Other international school leadership research consortia have emerged in the 21st century; however, the ISLDN is the second longest operating project, after the International Successful School Principalship Project (ISSPP). Since its creation in 2010, ISLDN scholars have delivered papers at a variety of international conferences and shared findings in research publications, including books and special issues of journals. Until now, ISLDN research findings have been disseminated separately for the project’s two strands: (a) social justice leadership and (b) leadership in underperforming high-needs schools.

Educational Research and Schooling in Rural Europe: An Engagement with Changing Patterns of Education, Space and Place

Editor: Cath Gristy
Editor: Linda Hargreaves
Editor: Silvie R. Kučerová
Abstract: This book provides authentic accounts of the effects of the revolutionary political reform experienced in the past half century on education in Europe’s considerable rural hinterland. These reforms include the liberation of the Baltic and Eastern European states from Soviet communist domination, the ‘eurozone’ economic crises, and the current and future migration of people fleeing war and poverty from the Middle East and Africa. Overshadowing these events are so-called global forces which champion economies of scale and pressurize academic performance as keys to economic success. Trapped in this distal whirlwind of change are 1000s of small and/or rural elementary schools and the life chances of more 1000s of young children. The research presented here unveils the unseen and under-reported consequences of top-down, urban-oriented educational policies on children’s and communities’ experience of place and space. Exposure of these conditions in rural Europe is long overdue, but obscured for decades by political extremes of left and right. Yet, the lived reality of peremptory and swathing school closure programmes, and poverty inflicted on rural populations in parts of Eastern Europe is relatively unreported in the western educational literature – a situation exacerbated by the virtual invisibility of rural educational research generally. The chapters in this book reveal the insights of social science scholars from 11 European countries including those from low GDP, formerly soviet bloc countries, recently enabled to present their research at western European conferences such as the European Educational Research Association.

Equity in Mathematics Education: Addressing a Changing World

Editor: Constantinos Xenofontos
Abstract: Following in the steps of the socio-political turn of the discipline, Equity in Mathematics Education: Addressing a Changing World emerged as a response of the editor and the chapter authors to the enormous changes that have in the last years occurred at a global level (for example, the ongoing war in Syria, the political [in]actions of powerful nations to fight climate change, the rise of far-right parties in many countries around the world, and so on). In recent years, massive migration waves from the Middle East have caused significant demographic changes to many European countries, Canada and the US, that are reflected in schools and classrooms. These observations have led this book's contributors to reconsider the concept and/or practice of equity, and its related concept, social justice, and the role of mathematics education research in addressing and promoting a fairer world. Contrary to other, perhaps highly specialized books concerned with similar topics, this book aims to provide a smooth, yet deep introduction to those who are new to this research area.

Ethics in Higher Education Promoting Equity and Inclusion Through Case-Based Inquiry

Editor: Rebecca M. Taylor
Editor: Ashley Floyd Kuntz
Abstract:

Leaders in higher education are under immense pressure to respond to campus crises quickly, to quell controversy, and to avoid the backlash of public scrutiny in an ever-shifting sociopolitical terrain. Yet, in tension with such pressures, adequate responses to these dilemmas require leaders to make ethical, contextual choices that effectively foster inclusion, respect individual and institutional freedoms, and promote equity.

Taylor and Kuntz demonstrate how to apply collaborative, multidisciplinary, philosophical inquiry to deeply complex issues. They present seven normative case studies focusing on a variety of campus quandaries, from urgent matters such as Title IX violations and free speech in social media policy to long-simmering concerns such as admissions and access and the future of historically Black colleges and universities. The editors then bring together a diverse group of scholars and practitioners with a broad array of disciplinary and personal backgrounds to offer their commentary and insight on the cases. Expanding the scope of inquiry, the contributors challenge underlying assumptions, raise points that had been omitted from the original cases, and imagine alternative solutions. Ethics in Higher Education appeals to readers to do the same, in the interest of advancing ethical decision-making on campuses.

Exploring Cultural Competence in Professional Development Schools

Editor: JoAnne Ferrara
Editor: Janice L. Nath
Editor: Ronald S. Beebe
Abstract: This book examines the ways in which PDSs build cultural competence for various stakeholders including pre-service teachers, classroom teachers, school leaders, college faculty, and K-12 students. Given the increased national attention on the opportunity gap present in underserved marginalized communities across the country, the authors in this series identify a combination of research-based practices and institutional changes that increase student attainment and develop educators’ capacity to serve a range of diverse learners. We are certain the timeliness of the topic will provide educators with context for understanding the role PDSs play in the creation of culturally responsive schools.

Flexible Mindsets in Schools: Channelling Brain Power for Critical Thinking, Complex Problem-Solving and Creativity

Author: Julie Dunstan
Author: Susannah Cole
Abstract:

Flexible Mindsets in Schools abandons painstaking evolution in favour of a bold, transformative revolution. It blends research and easily implementable practice to drive solutions that give learners and educators the freedom to become self-directed: to unleash questioning, problem-solving and creativity.

This key text explores how to blend existing and new practices and unlock the potential of student agency as the pathway towards resilience and adaptation. The Flexible Mindsets Modelfuses three components that rely on each other to drive self-directed learning: metacognition, "I CAN" mindset messages and executive function processes. This book presents a roadmap for how to create an environment and culture where learners are aware of what works when, feel safe to take learning-related risks, believe that they are capable and have the tools they need to learn.

Food for Thought: Service-Learning Research in Asia

Editor: Robert Shumer
Editor: Carol Ma Hok Ka
Editor: Constance Chan Wing Yee
Abstract: Service-learning research has been growing and expanding around the world. While much of the early work was carried out in the US and Europe, such efforts have been developing in Asia for the past few decades. The use of the term, ‘service-learning’ was not popular, while use of community engagement, volunteerism, social services are more common among community practitioners and academics, with the rapid development of service-learning, both research and community-based programs have been growing throughout Asia over the last decade. One of the major movements in that part of the world has been the Service-Learning Asia Network (started in 2005), where more than 11 countries have unified to share their efforts collectively through conferences and journals. In this new book we have examples from five (5) different places: China, Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and India. These models follow a recent publication of Asian research found in the Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, published in Summer 2019 after the 7th Asia Pacific Regional Service-Learning conference in Singapore. The chapters represent some of the exciting work that is developing in Asia, highlighting the rich and powerful connections between universities and communities throughout the region. Excellent examples of various kinds of study, from case studies, to qualitative research, to mixed method designs are included. In addition, the focus of the studies, from student learning, community change, innovative practice, and institutional development and change are provided to illustrate the rich diversity of work occurring throughout Asia.

Fostering Diversity and Inclusion in the Social Sciences

Author: Amy J. Samuels
Author: Gregory L. Samuels
Abstract: Given the perpetuation of inequities, existing educational disparities, and the continued need for reconciliation, this volume explores how the social sciences can be examined and reimagined to combat injustices and support further diversity, equity, and inclusion. Authors explore how educators can (a) understand how knowledge is constructed, shaped, and influences how students see the world, (b) problematize current curricular approaches and reframe instructional practices, (c) employ a critical lens to attend to and proactively address existing challenges and inequities related to race, (d) infuse their teaching with greater attention to diversity and inclusion for all students; and (e) promote increased awareness, advocacy, and educational justice. Through the examination of research, theory, and practitioner-oriented strategies, the authors encourage reflection, inspire calls for action, and explore how to teach about, proactively challenge, and encourage continued examination of society to support progress through increased critical consciousness, cultural competence, and critical multiculturalism.

Editor: Nahed Abdelrahman
Abstract: Though there has been a rapid increase of women’s representation in law and business, their representation in STEM fields has not been matched. Researchers have revealed that there are several environmental and social barriers including stereotypes, gender bias, and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities that continue to block women’s progress in STEM. In this book, the authors address the issues that encounter women of color in STEM in higher education.
