This scientific Journal emerges from the need to get a response to the excessive determinism and dogmatism whereupon the educative subjects have been treated from sociology with respect to the reproductionist role of the education in the society. RISE aims to analyze not only in a descriptive way which are the socio-educational elements that reproduce the social inequalities and even increase them, but the educative models, variables and activities that contribute to social change and to overcome those inequalities. Ultimately, RISE really tries to be an international space of debate and critic through the presentation of theoretical and practical contributions that can favor the educative equality and the improvement of our societies. The journal is mainly directed to scientific and research personnel and other key agents who wish to keep up with the current developments in the sociology of the education. It is an electronic publishing of four-monthly character that appears in the months of February, July and October. It publishes both in English and Spanish..
