The Educational Forum Cover Diamond Standard
The Educational Forum is in its 76th year as the cornerstone publication of Kappa Delta Pi.

Kappa Delta Pi’s premiere academic journal — The Educational Journal — made its first appearance in November 1936. That first issue was jam-packed with articles, studies, essays and even poems from leading educators across America.

History tells us those first issues were packed so full because of doubts about the future, fueled by the Great Depression. There may have been doubt about starting an academic journal in the depths of an economic depression, but educators and researchers have kept the journal strong for more than seven decades. >>>
The Educational Forum is a doubly masked peer-reviewed journal published quarterly to provide thought-provoking, challenging essays, research reports, and featured works designed to stimulate dialogue in education on a worldwide scale.

Alan Amtzis, Ph.D., of the College of New Jersey, is the current Academic Editor.
