Submissions Deadline: January 22, 2021

Issue Theme: Pathways to Radical Change

Theme Description: Threats to global public health, deep-rooted and systemic racial inequity, and worsening climate disruption represent some of the seemingly unmanageable challenges that have reached a breaking point and call for positive and comprehensive radical change. How do educators, activists, community leaders, and other concerned citizens respond in ways that bring about transformative and sustainable solutions that imagine new possibilities and amplify racial and social justice reform? What actionable changes in teaching and learning foster positive and deeply effective alternatives that result in healthy, compassionate, and just societies?

Possible prompts for parents, teachers, students, administrators, professors, school staff members, elected officials, community educators, elders, and others follow. Submissions are welcome via text files, video, audio, and/or artistic works.
