Ethical and Social Issues in Professional Education
Ethical and Social Issues in Professional Education (July 1994)
Celeste M. Brody - Editor
James Wallace - Editor

“This book shares personal insight into the development of a professional education program based on the liberal arts. It doesn’t attempt to gloss over the difficulties which are faced in the process or the future challenges which are foreseen. The authors have succeeded in whetting the appetites of those of us who long to see graduate level professional education focus less on the mechanics of practice and more on the ethics of living a...(Read More)
 
 
Multiculturalism and Education
Multiculturalism and Education (July 1994)
Diversity and its Impact on Schools and Society
Thomas J. La Belle - Author
Christopher R. Ward - Author

"This book is very useful. Because it is unique--a sound, balanced, political and theoretical work rather than a 'cookbook' on how to do multicultural education. It stands out from the many other books now appearing on the subject. It is a thoughtful, knowledgeable treatment of a topic that is too often treated, by authors, in a superficial or simplistic manner." -- Maxine S. Seller, University of Buffalo

This book introduces multiculturalis...(Read More)
 
 
The Contradictory College
The Contradictory College (July 1994)
The Conflicting Origins, Impacts, and Futures of the Community College
Kevin J. Dougherty - Author

"In this comprehensive and brilliantly lucid book, Kevin Dougherty considers competing ideas about the community colleges--ideas offered by functionalist advocates, instrumentalist Marxist critics, and institutionalist critics. In offering his own perspective, he sheds new light on the issues. He analyzes how various outcomes occur, identifies an important additional set of players, namely government officials, and specifies how business constrain...(Read More)
 
 
Schooling in the Light of Popular Culture
Schooling in the Light of Popular Culture (June 1994)
Paul Farber - Editor
Eugene F. Provenzo Jr. - Editor
Gunilla Holm - Editor

Many factors contribute to the way individuals come to an understanding of what schooling is about and where it might be headed. This book explores the role of popular culture in that process.

The authors illustrate how powerful and suggestive images and ideas about teachers, learning, and other aspects of schooling are constructed in the "texts" of various modes of popular culture. As a basis for further inquiry, the book describes important...(Read More)
 
 
Changing American Education
Changing American Education (April 1994)
Recapturing the Past or Inventing the Future?
Kathryn M. Borman - Editor
Nancy P. Greenman - Editor

School change and educational reform are discussed constantly by the media. Despite a decade of frenzied interest, there is little consensus on the most fundamental issues. The terminology of school reform remains unclear, obscured by ideological rhetoric. What is meant by terms such as “school restructuring,” “site-based management,” and “teacher education reform?” This book examines social changes affecting education...(Read More)
 
 
Oil in Troubled Waters
Oil in Troubled Waters (April 1994)
Perceptions, Politics, and the Battle Over Offshore Drilling
William R. Freudenburg - Author
Robert Gramling - Author

In some coastal regions of the United States, such as western Louisiana, offshore oil development has long been welcomed. In others, such as northern California, it has been vehemently opposed. This book explores the reasons behind this paradox, looking at the people, the regions, and the issues in sociological and historical contexts.

What has been in very short supply on this issue, as in a growing number of other cases of technological g...(Read More)
 
 
Playing Favorites
Playing Favorites (April 1994)
Gifted Education and the Disruption of Community
Mara Sapon-Shevin - Author

Playing Favorites examines the ways in which gifted education disrupts the classroom community, deskills regular classroom teachers, limits their ability and willingness to meet individual needs, and impairs the creation of a climate of inclusion and acceptance of difference. Sapon-Shevin shows here that current models of gifted education are elitist and meritocratic, treating some children, not just differently than others, but better; and ...(Read More)
 
 
Self and School Success
Self and School Success (April 1994)
Voices and Lore of Inner-City Students
Edwin Farrell - Author

"It is timely and much needed. For the past fifteen years I have said when it comes to urban environments we have studied the wrong youth--the dropouts! This book studies the stay-ins, the survivors, and has much to offer the educational community!"--Dr. Richard P. Lipka, Pittsburg State University

With the problems of the inner-cities reaching catastrophic proportions, Americans must ask themselves whether any young people in...(Read More)
