  • Call for Editors: Social Issues in Education

    The Issues Centered Community of NCSS seeks scholars interested in serving as Editor(s) of the IAP (Information Age Publishing) book series titled Social Issues in Education. The series was founded by Sam Totten and Jon Pedersen. They produced 7 books in the series and now believe it is time to pass the torch on to others in the academic community. The Issues Centered Community of NCSS has a long history of contributions to the series and has been asked to recommend Editor(s) to IAP publisher, George Johnson. We would like to see the series continue to grow. The Community will offer guidance and support. We will help the Editor(s) select an editorial review board and develop new projects. The Editor(s) would need to be strongly supportive of issues centered approaches across the curriculum, and have a strong interest in or track record of research on social issues in education.

    Please send a Vitae and Letter of Interest to Ronald W. Evans (revans@mail.sdsu.edu) and Mark A. Previte (previte@pitt.edu). Review of applications will begin October 1, with the goal of naming a new editor(s) by January, 2017. Please let us know if you have questions.
