About the Journal

The Holistic Education Review (HER) is the merging of three streams of academic publications on holistic education: The Holistic Educator Newsletter (HEN), The Holistic Education Review, and Encounter: Education for Meaning and Social Justice. While merging these streams together, HER is also the birth of a new publication: The Holistic Education Review journal. 

Purpose of the Holistic Education Review:

The Holistic Education Review (HER) Journal publishes two online, open-access journal issues per year and conducts additional educational activities for the holistic education community to enhance and broaden the scholarship of holistic education. We envision a holistic educational movement dedicated to the wellbeing and uplifting of human spirit on behalf of all life.

History 

HER represents an integration of threads from two previous publications.

The first of these publications originated in 1988 when Ron Miller founded the original quarterly journal, Holistic Education Review and became the journal’s Editor. This journal was a repository for scholarly research in the emerging field of holistic education. After four years, Ron handed over editorial duties to Jeffrey Cane and publishing duties to Charles Jakiela. The HER changed its name to Encounter: Education for Meaning and Social Justice. Later, William Crain became Editor, and this journal folded in 2015.
 
The second of these publications, The Holistic Educator Newsletter, began in 1991 as part of the Association of Supervision and Curriculum Development’s (ASCD) Wholistic Education Network. Jack Miller served as Editor from 1996 until 2011, when Susan Schiller and Gary Babiuk assumed the editorial roles. Throughout the history of HEN, the newsletter has been published twice a year, Spring and Fall.
 
In the summer of 2020, Susan and Gary asked Paul Freedman if he would assume the role of editor when they retired at the end of the year. Paul invited Laurel Tien and Renee Owen to join him as the new Editorial Team. Robin Martin has since joined the team.
 
The second thread 
 
The current editorial team is pleased to have brought these two streams together and to have both publications’ founders Jack Miller and Ron Miller involved on our Advisory Board. The new Holistic Education Review provides both a place for peer-reviewed scholarship as well as a hub for community members’ networking needs. 

The mission of the Holistic Education Review is to: 

The mission of the Holistic Education Review is to enhance and broaden the scholarship of holistic education, lift up diverse and emerging voices of holistic education practice, and connect the holistic education community.
