Volume 25 (2020)
The publication of volume 25 of Essays in Education (EIE) caps off a long and arduous three-year journey that began in April of 2017 when I and a few colleagues got the idea of resurrecting what had been a favorite (and free!) online journal from the last decade. EIE, as now, was always an eclectic educational journal, and I accessed each new volume with the same anticipation I have when opening a gift.
I am proud of, and grateful for, our editorial team—Gail, George & Robin—and our many supporters who have assisted us on this journey, in particular Kendall Larson & Russ Dennison, Winona State University library faculty, the folks from Bepress, and our dedicated and expanding team of peer reviewers. It really takes a team!
Lastly, I thank Dr. Timothy Lintner from the University of South Carolina Aiken, the founder and original editor of EIE from 2002 to 2008, who graciously granted us permission to resurrect the journal and migrate it to Winona State University.
