Call for submissions
We are currently accepting submissions for the 4th issue of the journal on Arresting Educational Inequalities. Deadline for paper submission is June 30th 2007
This volume welcomes contributions on educational differences in achievement, home environment and schools performance, the curriculum and the problem of under-achievement, the inclusive curriculum, and the remedial (psychological) and child friendly classroom, the myth and reality of inequality, is inequality normal and do on. The Editorial Board emphasizes papers that offer solutions to the problems of inequality from Educational foundations to management, curriculum studies, exercise and movement studies.
We are currently accepting submissions for the 5th issue of the Journal on The Future of Curriculum Theorizing vol.3 (3) Deadline for paper submission is October 30th 2007
The question of what will be the nature, focus and impact of curriculum theorizing appears often taken for granted: Curriculum will be planned according to the social needs as we are told but at what point do this happens. We are seldom/or hardly told. What will the society of the future look like and what shall we offer as the curriculum.
This edition is on the yet-undeciphered but gradually emerging problems likely to confront the bodies of knowledge currently taught in schools and colleges. For example: will physics remain as physics, or social studies as social studies or will curriculum theorists themselves remain in business. The Editorial Board will specially welcome papers that identify potential threats to the contents and the spheres of knowledge currently taught and which offer practical solutions to them, from curriculum politicking to strategies, pedagogy, Universal basic Education interventionism.
.Democracy, Accountability and Educational management .Vol 4(1).Deadline for paper submission is January 2008
The 1990s were the years of demilitarization and democratization in the developing countries. Schools (primary, secondary and tertiary) have supposedly being influenced. Educators are prone to query the nature, focus and substance and directions of these changes in the management of schools. In Nigeria for example, it could be asked if democracy has impacted positively on the management of public schools, or how justifiable was the attempted privatization of Federal/Unity schools by the central administration or in Lagos state ask if the high-faulting pronouncements of the fire-branding activist government transformed into smooth efficient, non-dictatorial management of schools and boards. Does paper democracy translate into comfortable and professionally acceptable classrooms? The Editors will welcome critically yet empirical submissions. Are school managers psychologically repressed in the emergent democracies in Africa?
4. Health, Sports and Gender in Education Vol 4(2) Deadline for paper submission is June 30th 2008
This edition will include papers on poverty, religion, belief systems, voodoo, tokenism and so on, sports participation, reporting and research; why are female sports discriminated against or why are female sportsmen paid less than their female counterparts in professional sports; the girl-child, rights to education, gender inequalities and affirmative action; gender sensitization ,socialization and the re-training of teachers, and the emergent constraints to effective health and sports practices (and teaching) in schools. The submissions could either be phenomenological or empirical while the editors will pace high premium on those offering solutions to problems and constraints.
