Journal of Educational and Psychological Consultation Open Call for Papers for Special Issue

School Consultation Grounded in Social Justice: Dismantling White Privilege in Education

Journal of Educational and Psychological Consultation

The Journal of Educational and Psychological Consultation invites submissions of manuscripts for a special issue addressing the pervasive grip of white privilege in education and the importance of utilizing consultation to combat white supremacy in schools. The special issue is co-edited by Ruth Schumacher-Martinez and Sherrie Proctor. 

Although there has been critical work done to advance culturally responsive pedagogy, there is a dearth in empirical research regarding consultation strategies to address institutional racism and white privilege within elementary, secondary, and post-secondary education. The purpose of this special issue is to provide a roadmap for practitioners and scholars to avoid being complicit with racist practices within education

This special issue provides a venue for scholars to disseminate research studies that address consultation related to dismantling white privilege in education. We are interested primarily in submissions that are empirical, although theoretical or conceptual papers will be considered if they contribute significantly to the literature base.
