Call for Papers for Theme Issue

American Educational Research Journal
Section on Social and Institutional Analysis
Deadline: April 20, 2007

The editors of AERJ/SIA (American Educational Research Journal, Section on Social and Institutional Analysis) will publish a theme issue in Fall 2007 on the effects of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2002 (NCLB). The goal of the act is "to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging State academic achievement standards and State academic assessments."

We invite research papers that examine the intended or unintended consequences of NCLB, as well as underlying issues that have been resolved or complicated by the policy. Submissions may address a variety of content areas (policy enactment, teacher quality, mainstream and minority student progress, finance, equity, and others), and may reflect a range of epistemological and methodological perspectives. We hope this special issue of AERJ/SIA will lead to deeper understandings of what it takes to enact bipartisan policy to improve the academic achievement of all students.

Submit manuscripts, clearly marked for the theme issue, through the AERJ/SIA website: http://ojs.aera.net/journals/aerj-sia.

Submissions will undergo peer review. Final manuscripts are due April 20, 2007. If you have questions, please contact AERJ/SIA co-editor Sandra Hollingsworth at samholl@ssctv.net.
