Call For Submissions

In honor of our 15th anniversary, Perspectives on Urban Education invites the submission of manuscripts that reflect on changes in Urban Education in the last 15 years—What issues have we resolved? What progress have we made? What challenges remain? How can we surmount them? Where will we be 15 years from now?  We encourage authors to refer to earlier issues of Perspectives as they prepare their manuscripts for submission.

We welcome submissions from researchers, graduate students, practitioners, policy makers, and youth to publish studies in progress, as well as findings from completed research and reflections on practice. We also welcome submissions that present content in creative ways through multimedia formats.

Topics include but are not limited to: multimodality and technology in the classroom, school-community relationships, gender and education, school reform and funding, school administration and leadership, marginalized students, English Language Learners, Teach for America, pre-service teachers, teacher education, curriculum design, and more.

Submissions must follow the style outlined in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2009, 6th edition)--quick reference here.

Submissions should include two documents: (1) a cover page with the information contained in our guidelines here, and (2) a blinded manuscript.

Please send all submissions and questions to
