The Texas Education Review (TxEd) is an open-access, online, student peer-reviewed journal carrying original empirical and theoretical educational research.  Accepting submissions on a rolling basis, we welcome pieces that address sociopolitical, economic, cultural, and organizational issues in education.  TxEd seeks to build collaborative research relationships that extend beyond the University of Texas at Austin.  We invite practitioners, policy-makers, activists, and researchers, as well as emerging and faculty scholars to submit manuscripts and editorials on contemporary “Critical Issues” in education.  Manuscript and editorial Critical Issue texts should be aimed at analyzing, evaluating, problematizing, and/or pushing educational scholarship forward.
