The emancipatory promise of charter schools : toward a progressive politics of school choice by Eric E Rofes( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book opens up a critical conversation among progressive educators of various generations, races, perspectives, and social locations concerning one specific school reform initiative - charter schools. Eric Rofes and Lisa M. Stulberg bring together scholars who both study and actively participate in school choice reform and charge them to be "bold in their questioning and assertive in their own ambivalence" about this complex, controversial public issue and to include issues that are underexamined in the school literature, such as the impact of school choice on race and class politics and inequalities. The editors argue that charter schools are playing a powerful role in reviving participation in public education, expanding opportunities for progressive methods in public school classrooms, and generating new energy for community-based, community-controlled school initiatives. The result is a volume that pushes boundaries, questions assumptions, and rocks foundations of progressive thought."--Jacket

Youth and sexualities : pleasure, subversion, and insubordination in and out of schools by Mary Louise Rasmussen( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These cutting-edge international essays challenge dominant narratives of queer youth predicated on oppression and victimization. As school systems address the emergence of Gay-Straight Alliances and calls to provide equal educational access, researchers, educators and youth workers are paying increasing attention to sexuality, gender and schooling. Yet present discourses are limited to liberal understandings of tolerance, safety, and equity that are defined by a separation of "queer" and "normal." This text documents and offers radical interpretations of the creativity of queer youth in challenging existing practices. Interdisciplinary analyses offer multiple vantage points for reconceptualizing adolescent sexual subjectivities and institutional and cultural practices

De auteur gaat o.a. in debat met schrijvers en journalisten als Larry Kramer, Michelangelo Signorile en Gabriel Rotello die er een nogal moralistische kijk op de seksuele cultuur van Amerikaans homomannen op nahouden
A radical rethinking of sexuality and schooling : status quo or status queer by Eric E Rofes( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Radical Rethinking of Sexuality and Schooling: Status Quo or Status Queer? offers a critique of unexamined assumptions and liberal notions about sexuality and education in the United States. Tackling issues ranging from anti-gay harassment in school to children's literature on gay themes, gender performances of teachers to HIV education, and graduate school programs in education to gay men's sexual cultures, Eric Rofes presents a compelling argument for the creation of a second generation of activism focused on queers, schools, and education."--Jacket

What are the effects of charter laws and charter schools on school districts? : a study of eight states and the District Of Columbia by Eric E Rofes( )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To date, little research has been initiated to study the overall effects which charter schools are having on school districts throughout the United States. Yet advocates promoting charter schools have argued that charters will create market forces within public education that will result in improved education for children who remain in traditional public schools. Likewise, opponents of charters argue they will undermine public education and cause nearby school districts to flounder
How are school districts responding to charter laws and charter schools? : a study of eight states and the District of Columbia by Eric E Rofes( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report provides findings from a study that aimed to identity: (1) the impact of charter schools on school districts; (2) the ways school districts had responded; and (3) whether districts had experienced systemic change as a result of charter laws and the opening of charter schools. The study was conducted in 1997, six years into the nation's experiment with charter schools. It focused on eight states and the District of Columbia and included case studies of 25 school districts affected by charter schools. The study revealed the following primary impacts: (1) the loss of students and often an accompanying loss of financing; (2) the loss of a particular kind of student to niche-focused charter schools; (3) the departure of significant numbers of disgruntled parents; (4) shifts in staff morale; (5) the redistribution of some central office administrators' time and increased challenges predicting student enrollment and planning grade-level placement. Of the 25 case-study districts in this research study, almost half (12 or 48%) had experienced either strong (five or 20%) or moderate (seven or 28%) impact from charter schools and slightly more than half (13 or 52%) had experienced either no impact (nine or 36%) or mild impact (four or 16%). Large urban districts had experienced significantly less impact from charters than rural, suburban, and small urban districts. (Aa)

Queers, Education Schools, and Sex Panic by Eric E Rofes( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper examines education's role in addressing lesbian, gay, and bisexual issues, focusing on the role of graduate schools of education. It discusses the mission of schools of education and reviews points of conflict concerning the purpose of such schools. It then provides evidence of the vast array of contemporary lesbian and gay issues which confront educators, pointing out that if education schools were to fulfill the essence of their missions, considerable resources would be channeled into research, theory, and analysis of lesbian and gay issues in the educational arena. The paper also examines bulletins, course catalogs, and application materials from 16 graduate schools of education in order to assess the stated relationship between schools of education and lesbian and gay issues. It then discusses the personal experiences of an education graduate student interested in the study of gay and lesbian issues, as well as historical accounts of sex scandals and moral panics in educational institutions. It concludes by stating that the linkage of gay educators and children triggers real or imagined sex panic which functions to police many aspects of academic life. However, it urges educational leaders to find the courage to fulfill the mission and preserve the integrity of the discipline by interrogating controversial and vexing questions. An appendix lists the bulletins, course catalogs, and application materials reviewed. (Contains 99 references.) (Mdm)
Opening up the classroom closet : responding to the educational needs of gay and lesbian youth by Eric E Rofes( )

Transgression and the Situated Body: Gender, Sex, and the Gay Male Teacher by Eric E Rofes( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper begins by examining representations of gay male school teachers in discourses produced by gay men, illustrating the ways gay men represent themselves in public discourse. The literature is reviewed for answers to questions about the role of the gay male teacher in education and the responsibility of the gay male teacher to gay liberationist politics while working as an educator. Events from the author's own classroom are used to illustrate dilemmas he has faced as a gay male college teacher and ways he has responded. Ways are then suggested within discourses on gender, the body, and sexuality that offer opportunities for gay male teachers to recognize their potential contributions to the field of education and the lives of children more fully. The review of the literature shows that the personal narratives of gay male teachers reveal the tradeoffs lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people are forced to make as they move in the public sphere. Many gay men maintain sharp divides between their sex lives and classroom lives. They usually face the choice between a committed couple relationship and desexualized behavior. There is really no room for a type of gay male identity that acknowledges the value some gay men place on the erotic. Questions that the teacher may encounter include: if the teacher believes that there are many diverse and ethical ways for people to structure their social and sexual practices, is it acceptable to affirm this in the classroom?; And, if the teacher believes in casual, nonmonogamous sex, what responsibility does he have toward gay male students? Questions the gay male teacher faces in classroom situations and other encounters with students have implications for democratic education and social change. (Contains 22 references.) (Sld)
