Kappan, the journal of PDK International, is the professional magazine for anyone who cares about K-12 education. In print since 1915 – and now published online, too – it features articles about educational research, practice, and policy, as well as blogs and columns on school and district leadership, media coverage of education, legal issues in the field, state and federal politics, and more.
Kappan aims to provide a civil forum for honest debate about how best to govern and improve the nation’s public schools. To that end we feature lively articles and commentary — written in an accessible style — on a wide range of themes, from elementary education, middle grades reform, and high school improvement to new research and trends in teacher preparation, classroom instruction, curriculum design, assessment, education technology, student health and wellness, college transitions, family and community engagement and many other topics.
We welcome submissions from researchers and policy advocates as well as from teachers, principals, district and state leaders, students, parents, school board members, and anyone else who wishes to share vital stories and insights about K-12 education.
