Our peer-reviewed, open-access Journal is currently accepting applications for publication. Previous issues are still available to foster and encourage academic discourse on topics germane to laboratory and university-affiliated schools. Articles offer perspectives on educational trends and include topics such as the history and future of lab schools, innovations in curricula and programs, lab school administration, and teacher education. The journal includes articles grounded in evidence-based classroom practices, action research, and theoretically based quantitative and qualitative scholarship. Best practices, educational trends, and theoretical based quantitative and qualitative scholarship found within these pages are intended to extend beyond our respective geographical contexts.
