International Journal of Educational Policy, Research, and Practice: Reconceptualizing Childhood Studies Mission Statement


Bloch, Marianne N., Cannella, Gaile S., International Journal of Educational Policy, Research and Practice


The International Journal of Educational Policy, Research and Practice (IJEPRP): Reconceptualizing Childhood Studies is available in print form to an audience of researchers and practitioners in the field of education. IJEPRP seeks to publish research and practical applications of research to address current issues of importance worldwide.

The focus on reconceptualizing childhood studies will include attention toward cultural historical studies of childhood, critical anthropological and sociological studies of childhood, and critical psychological and educational/curricular studies of childhood, families, and education as well as schooling--around the world.

While the journal's foci range across the theoretical, research, policy, and practice areas, the goal of the journal is to bring a critique of current dominant approaches to childhood studies, to policies and policing of childhood from infancy through later years of schooling, and to invite studies of curriculum, schooling, childhood that reconceptualize current practice. …
