In order to enact the mission of the ICJW to cultivate mutually beneficial, ethical, and transformative relationships among diverse community allies, this journal offers a rigorous exchange of new ideas, pedagogy, curricula, and activism in and around education endeavors.

The JFDE is committed to decolonizing and disrupting oppressive, deficit and racist ideologies by focusing on work that prioritizes schools, families, communities, scholars, and activists seeking to establish liberatory and humanized spaces.

JFDE New Issue (Spring 2023)


We are pleased to announce the release of a new issue of JFDE. The spring 2023 issue includes Part 2 of our special issue focused on the Family Leadership Design Collaborative. We are grateful to guest co-editors Dr. Ann M. Ishimaru and Dr. Megan Bang for sharing this innovative work with the JFDE community. Part 1 of the special issue can be found in Volume 4, no 1. of the JFDE. Collectively these articles are wonderful examples of community-engaged scholarship and will hopefully inspire additional innovations in the field.  This issue also includes a new “Community Conversation” with the National Association for Family, School and Community Engagement (NAFSCE). This feature is a part of our continued commitment to bring readers of JFDE timely content. NAFSCE recently completed a three-year effort to develop Family Engagement Core Competencies for family-facing professionals. We hope you find this conversation regarding the development of the competencies interesting and consider engaging with their work.
