Jean Gordon (1950-2018)
The EIESP fondly remembers Jean Gordon, Director of the EIESP from 2003 to 2013, and Joint Editor of European Journal of Education (EJE) and member of the EJE board (2004-2015). Jean passed away on 30 October 2018. On the anniversary of her passing, she is remembered by her colleagues at the EIESP and the European Journal of Education for her determined optimism, insightfulness, openness to new ideas, ability to negotiate values and forge compromises, and above all, her social and moral commitment and integrity. In addition to numerous editorials, Jean published a number of articles EJE which we present here, free to access through to October 2020.
