Foundations of Education helps aspiring teachers interpret the craft of teaching within the historical, philosophical, cultural, and social contexts of education inside and outside of schools. This volume contains substantial selections from those works widely regarded as central to the development of the field. These are the essential texts that lay the basis of further study for any serious student of education. The text is organized around the separate foundations disciplines-history, politics, sociology, philosophy- and includes extended selections from the works of John Dewey and W.E.B. DuBois to contemporary thinkers such as Maxine Greene and Diane Ravitch. Noted scholar and editor of this volume, Susan Semel, provides an introductory essay that contextualizes the readings and highlights the selections' continued importance and application to today's most pressing educational issues.
Susan F. Semel is Professor of Education at The City College of New York as well as The Graduate Center of CUNY.
