Ph.D. elementary ed. alumnus co-edits book
Mark Vagle, who completed a Ph.D. (curriculum and instruction: elementary education) in 2006, is now an assistant professor of middle grades education in the Department of Elementary and Social Studies Education at The University of Georgia. Vagle has just announced the publication of a new book, Developmentalism in Early Childhood And Middle Grades Education: Critical Conversations on Readiness and Responsiveness, which he co-edited with Kyunghwa Lee.
Before working in higher education, Vagle taught in elementary and middle
