Perspectives on Urban Education is an online, student-run journal produced by the Penn Graduate School of Education. For our Spring 2019 edition, Perspectives is looking for papers, commentaries, and notes from the field of urban education.

This edition does not have a specific theme, but we are particularly looking for submissions relating to the topics below:
● Effects of Gentrification (on students, parents, schools, or communities)
● Practitioner Voices in Urban Settings
● Civic Education and/or Engagement in Urban Environments
● Immigration and Urban Education
● “Town-Gown” Relationship (connection between urban colleges and communities)
● Utilization of Data in Urban Education Environments

The mission of Penn GSE Perspectives on Urban Education is to provide an interactive forum to investigate critical issues in urban education. As such, we look for submissions from all stakeholders in urban education : researchers, parents, teachers, students, program workers, support personnel, and administration. We welcome a variety of submission types, including: voices from the field, commentaries, feature articles, and book reviews.
