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.   For more information on word limits, format, and descriptions see our Submit page.
