The Texas Education Review (TxEd) is being built to lead the evolution of online academic journals. Rather than simply publish articles that address varied issues in education in a traditional chronological format, we have taken a more intentional approach.
The TxEd editorial team identified what we believe to be the top fifty critical issues in education today. We plan to build a Critical Issue page for each of those issues where we will highlight the latest research and editorials on the given topic. Each Critical Issue page will also provide a PhD student written Overview that serves as an introduction to anyone interested in learning more about that specific issue.
Please contact us if you would like to submit a work for consideration regarding any of these Critical Issues in education or if you are interested in submitting on a topic not currently listed.
