Over 50 contemporary issues are discussed and there is a special guide that walks you through them. At en end of the text is a forty-page handbook on observing schools and classrooms that is filled with helpful tips and activities.The fifth edition offers new material on induction, technology, ethics, student diversity, multiple and emotional intelligence, national standards and testing, and the emergence of EMOs (Educational Maintenance Organizations).Combine all this with an excellent author team, detailed appendices, and a complete supplements package, and you have an extraordinary resource for introductory coverage of American education.
