Special Issue: Policy and Advocacy for Educational Justice in Texas’ 87th 

This critical issue will provide a forum for diverse voices involved in educational equity advocacy in high-stakes contexts like the upcoming 87th session of the Texas State Legislature to examine how policy and advocacy are (or are not) reimagining the pursuit of educational justice in Texas schools and school systems, including in the communities in which they are embedded.

In addition to the analysis of how Texas’ long-sustained battles for increased equity in assessment and accountability, school finance, curricula, bilingual education, and college readiness and success are being “(re)imagined” through policy, this issue invites interrogation of whose voices, perspectives, and interests are being included in advocacy and policymaking before, during, and after the session. This could consist of how new, more representative, more community-grounded coalitions for educational policy are being cultivated and engaging in the policymaking process for the benefit of Texas students and their communities.
