Journal of Family Diversity in Education

The Journal of Family Diversity in Education is the journal of the Family Diversity Education Council and is hosted at Kent State University. In order to enact the mission of the FDEC to generate, share, and disseminate knowledge related to issues of family diversity and equity in family-school-community relationships, this journal represents a formal, rigorous exchange of the new ideas, pedagogy, and curriculum of this field.


Message to the Readership of the Journal of Family Diversity in Education:
As we reach the five year anniversary of the publication of our first issue, we are extremely pleased with the library and legacy of scholarship shared and disseminated through this venue! The future of the journal is also bright and continues to have support from a stellar group on the JFDE Editorial Board. Although the JFDE will continue under our advisory, as its founders, into the foreseeable future, the five year mark heralds the call for new leadership and fresh vision. We have, therefore, embarked upon a search for new editorial leadership and during this search, we are suspending acceptance of new submissions.  We do this in order to focus on securing the best fit for this important position and to insure a seamless transition to the next published issue, targeted for Fall 2020. We anticipate reopening the JFDE open submissions system in the early Spring of 2020. Please check back with us at that time. Until then, enjoy the archives of previously published JFDE scholarship available on this site. We thank you for your past, present, and future readership and support.
