This textbook provides a balanced look at many "hot topic" educational issues. The viewpoints are short and concise, and written in a point-counterpoint format. There are a wide variety of authors providing their points of view, and the book seems well researched. The book was cheaper than my college bookstore and it arrived when it was supposed to so I am very pleased with this purchase.
