Bold Visions in Educational Research was co-founded by Joe L. Kincheloe and Kenneth Tobin for the purposes of publishing cutting edge research that incorporated incisive insights supported by rich theoretical frameworks. The editors stance was that scholars with bold visions would pave the way for the transformation of educational policies and practices. In conjunction with this idea of encouraging theoretically rich research, the editors planned a series of
Pioneers—first readers in a given field.
Pioneers are written for educators seeking entry into a field of study. Each
Pioneer is a “starter”; an introduction to an area of scholarship, providing well-developed, theory-rich, jargon-free texts about current, state-of-the-art research that affords deep understandings of an area and lays the foundation for further studies in the same and related areas. The books are excellent texts for graduate studies, useful resources for professional development programs, and handy reference readers for early career researchers.
