Dr. Scott McLean’s article, “From Cultural Deprivation to Individual Deficits: A Genealogy of Deficiency in Inuit Adult Education,” was similarly honoured from the English-language articles published in Volume 39.

The criteria for the awards are the importance and originality of the study, the appropriateness and rigor of methods, the significance of the results to the Canadian education community, and the quality of writing. The awards are adjudicated by the CJE Board of Consulting Editors.
