This issue of the Journal of Educational Controversy looks at the ways the professions and the scholarly communities shape the public’s understandings and questions. Bringing expertise and professional norms to the public square is fraught with tensions and dilemmas. Sometimes these tensions arise because professional expertise comes into conflict with the democratic will. Other times, conflicts emerge within the communities of scholars and professions themselves when new paradigms challenge traditional ones.
