Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Journal of Educational Controversy, an interdisciplinary journal of ideas. This journal is intended to be a national and international forum for an examination of educational controversies, dilemmas, and tensions. It will bring to that examination scholars from all disciplines to analyze a certain kind of controversy. It is the kind of controversy or tension that arises in our efforts to teach and learn in a democratic, pluralistic society. These tensions arise in our practices because public school policies reflect the tensions that are inherent in the public philosophy of a liberal democratic state.
