Caddo Gap Press has supported the voices
of progressive and radical change in American and international
education as an independent publisher since 1989. We are committed
to publishing works of educational, cultural, community, and
public value, which despite their intellectual and political
merit are too often deemed unprofitable or politically unsuitable
by larger commercial publishers.
Our aim as an independent press
is to present the perspectives of critical scholars, disseminate
the work of traditionally underrepresented voices, and address
the otherwise marginalized issues and concerns of education
in transition. We offer promising efforts at reform and innovation
from a variety of educational and cultural fields and settings
that move beyond failing mainstream rhetoric to expand dialogue
