This introductory paper begins by summarizing the premises of this special issue on "Wilding Educational Policy." That is, first, current normalized educational practices in education are not adequate for these times of extraordinary social and ecological upheaval. Second, an important way forward will be to problematize modernist tendencies to control discourse and practice in education in ways that tend to "domesticate" educational possibilities. We then describe how the papers in this collection are framed around two emergent thematic arcs. One arc is directly aimed at initiating conversations with and amongst policy-makers. The other arc illustrates how authors have been expanding their understanding of the premises of this issue and how "wilding" can be interpreted in different cultural settings. These papers all add to a growing body of literature that builds on experiments and musings in "wild pedagogies."
