Summary

Foundations of Education, Third Edition , analyzes tough issues teachers will face upon entering their field, including professionalism, school reform, cultural diversity, inclusion, and technology. Through new and greatly revised chapters and new pedagogical features, this edition helps pre-service teachers analyze issues and determine how they will address them in their professional practice. The book constitutes a lively, provocative text that students will enjoy reading, gives a fresh look at traditional topics in educational foundations, and enhances its technological and global perspectives for the 21st century. Addressing all the foundational areas of education, including history, philosophy, sociology, school governance, finance, and school law, the book also offers introductions to the areas of curriculum, theory, and methods, and to teaching as a career.
