James Kyrilo, Alvin Burstein

These colleagues have pieces recently published and forthcoming on curriculum and academic freedom, a key perception being that faculty rights and tenure are not the only or perhaps even the main point of attack on education. The place where student and faculty rights are both being eroded is curriculum — which is of course one more reason why I should be preparing my piece for a curriculum journal. Faculty working conditions are student learning conditions, it is said, but the converse is perhaps yet truer.

I have a version of the piece forthcoming — I believe — in a professional, but not refereed venue, and it has been suggested to me that an even shorter version can go to the CHE or Truthout. The Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy has been suggested to me. I, meanwhile, am fascinated with another journal, New Political Science.

Axé.
