Summary

Eugene Provenzo, a nationally recognized scholar in the social and cultural foundations of education, has edited this collection of significant readings relevant to western traditions of education. Focusing on modern and postmodern ideas, Critical Issues in Education: An Anthology of Readings includes selections from scholars of education ranging from John Dewey and William James to important contemporary writers such as bell hooks, Sonia Nieto, and Henry Giroux. Key Features: Provides strong introductory materials: The editor has developed this as a course text and therefore provides original contributions to contextualize and shape the selections into a meaningful whole. He offers commentary and analysis throughout in the form of original essays, head notes, and questions that help students engage with the anthologized readings. Follows a comprehensive development of themes: A compilation of many of the most significant readings about education in the west, the book is organized into seven thematic units?The Aims of Education; Society and Education; Compulsory Education and the Transmission of Culture; Sexuality and Education; Race; Multiculturalism, and Education; Social Class and Education; and Technology and Education. Stimulates critical thinking: The editor includes readings that are important, provocative, and inherently interesting, and that encourage readers to critically reflect on the meaning of education and schooling in American culture. In addition, discussion questions for each of the eight thematic units facilitate classroom discussion. Intended Audience: This is an ideal supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate courses on the foundations of education such as Foundations of Education; Historical Foundations of Education; Philosophical Foundations of Education; and Issues in Education. It will also be a welcome addition to individual scholars? bookshelves.
