Current Issues in Education Current Issues in Education (CIE) is an open access peer-reviewed academic education journal sponsored by the Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College of Arizona State University. This journal is produced by ASU graduate students and publishes articles on a broad range of education topics that are timely and have relevance in the field of education (pre-K, K-12, and higher education) both nationally and internationally. We seek scholarship that tackles issues facing our field at new levels and in new ways. We publish articles on topics such as curriculum and instruction, leadership and policy, social and philosophical foundations, psychology, technology, school counseling, applied practice, and research methodology in education. CIE has three goals with its published research: (1) promote scholarly thought in the field of education, (2) facilitate and heighten dialogues between educators, scholars, officials, and the public, and (3) further connections between research and policy.
