TSJ's Pauline Lipman to be honored by The Institute for Research on Race & Public Policy at UIC
The Institute for Research on Race & Public Policy
at the University of Illinois, Chicago
is pleased to announce its JANUARY 2014 SCHOLAR SPOTLIGHT featuring:
Professor, Educational Policy Studies
University of Illinois at Chicago
Lipman’s work focuses on race and class inequality in education,
globalization, and the political economy of urban education. Her most
recent book, "The New Political Economy of Urban Education: Neoliberalism,
Race, & the Right to the City," argues education is integral to neoliberal
economic and urban restructuring as well as class and race inequalities.
As a 2012-2013 IRRPP Policy and Social Engagement Fellow, Lipman has
partnered with the Kenwood Oakland Community Organization (KOCO) to
explore how local communities are affected by Chicago Public Schools
policies. To learn more about Lipman's project with KOCO, read the entire

Register for a 2014 Inquiry to Action Group ItAG
It’s a pivotal time for early childhood education, with increasing political and policy attention. States, including Illinois, have dramatically increased funding for programs over the last couple decades. This creates tremendous opportunity as well as substantial challenge, particularly as many advocacy organizations have begun to push an "alignment" across early childhood (birth though 5) and our K-12 education system. In this ITAG, we will explore the question: how can early education – through the lens of language, culture, identity – become a legitimately and widely recognized part of our education system without being negatively impacted by a push down of corporate education reform and a diminishing focus on developmentally appropriate practice in the early years that could come with being part of the K-12 education system.
