We hope this issue inspires the creativity, imagination, and social justice pursuits of IJME
A new era seemingly began in 2002 when the one journal divided into two, with the annual IJME publishing peer-reviewed articles "focused on cutting edge research and scholarly discourse," and the new annual Music Education International (MEI) publishing peer-reviewed articles "on the more practical aspects of music teaching." The latter was to be more than a "cookbook" of teaching ideas.
Coinciding with fiftieth-anniversary ISME celebrations, IJME moved from ISME's in-house printer at the University of Western Australia to SAGE Publications.
The mission of IJME is stated as "promoting educational equity for diverse students, cross-cultural understanding, and global justice for marginalized people in all levels of education, including leadership and policies" (International Journal of Multicultural Education, n.d.).
I was encouraged by the many authors, reviewers, editors, advisors, and tech supporters of EMME and IJME who demonstrated that I was not alone in this experiment of radical generosity.
In this special issue of the International Journal of Multicultural Education (IJME
), we present articles that have engaged this research method as an investigative tool to explore the topics of educational equity and educational inequity from a critical perspective.
With additional support, IJME
will be able to continue to publish three issues a year, including one special issue, and increase its reach in the world.
Finalmente nos complace presentar este volumen como un primer intento de IJME
por incluir articulos escritos en otras lenguas, en este caso espanol ademas del ingles.
