Voices in Urban Education (VUE)

Cover image of Voice in Urban Education - Issue 49

VUE is an open-access journal published twice annually that endeavors to serve as a “roundtable-in-print” by bringing together diverse education stakeholders with a wide range of viewpoints, including leading education writers and thinkers and essential but frequently underrepresented voices in educational scholarship, such as students, parents, teachers, activists, and community members.

Each issue of VUE is organized around a theme and strives to provide cutting-edge analysis of a vital issue in urban public education—formats include visual arts, articles, interviews, video and written documentaries, poetry, and autoethnographies.

Our newly structured editorial board currently runs VUE. It consists of our lead editorial team, composed of faculty members in the roles of the editor-in-chief and the deputy editor. The Editorial Board also includes doctoral fellows who step into Senior Fellows, Junior Fellows, and Content Editor Fellows positions. These doctoral students join the board from various higher education institutions and bring a breadth of expertise to the board.
