Schoolhousing
Schoolhousing (December 1993)
Planning and Designing Educational Facilities
Flora Ida Ortiz - Author

"I was pleasantly surprised, even impressed, by the conceptual foundations and scholarly approach exhibited by this book. The author links the policy model of Kaufman to school facilities planning in a very effective way. The discussion of, and findings for, the discrete and interactive aspects of the planning process can be very helpful to educators and other professionals who are involved in facilities planning." --Cecil Miskel, University of...(Read More)

Laura and Jim and What They Taught Me About the Gap Between Educational Theory and Practice
Laura and Jim and What They Taught Me About the Gap Between Educational Theory and Practice (November 1993)
Dona M. Kagan - Author

"The stories illustrate in thick, rich description what we know as the great divide among classroom teachers and college professors. It's a great book to analyze in teacher education courses, qualitative research courses, and others dealing with research-to-practice issues and preservice teacher training." -- Francine Peterman, Ball State University

Many teachers do not conform to the views of teaching espoused by professors of educat...(Read More)
 
 
Conflict, Competition, or Cooperation?
Conflict, Competition, or Cooperation? (October 1993)
Dilemmas of State Education Policymaking
Douglas M. Abrams - Author

Conflict, Competition, or Cooperation? is a timely addition to the long neglected study of the interface between elementary-secondary and post-secondary education. The work provides valuable insights for several research traditions." -- E. Robert Stephens, University of Maryland at College Park

This book analyzes the organizational interface between the public and higher education sectors as policy leaders experiment wi...(Read More)
 
 
At-Risk Students
At-Risk Students (July 1993)
Portraits, Policies, Programs, and Practices
Robert Donmoyer - Editor
Raylene Kos - Editor

"Without coming to grips with the at-risk student problem, school reorganization, new subject matter, instructional methods, and other forms of curriculum reform are all hollow. As one reads the material in this book, it becomes very clear that larger societal issues are at stake, and need to be solved. Oh, that the "Education President" would/could read this kind of material as a basis of making national policy." -- Nelson L. Haggerson, Arizona St...(Read More)
 
 
Changing Patterns of Power
Changing Patterns of Power (July 1993)
Social Regulation and Teacher Education Reform
Thomas S. Popkewitz - Editor

"I believe that the topic is ripe for such a sophisticated social and political analysis. There are other volumes about teacher education internationally, but few come close to providing the insights that can be gleaned from this book."-- Mark Ginsburg, Institute for International Studies in Education, University of Pittsburgh

"Educational reformers exhibit a degree of provincialism in outlook that is astounding. A book that deals with refo...(Read More)
 
 
Educational Administration in a Pluralistic Society
Educational Administration in a Pluralistic Society (July 1993)
Colleen A. Capper - Editor

"Colleen Capper has pulled together an ambitious and exciting volume. The authors challenge administrators to question much that schools generally take for granted, to examine epistemological assumptions underlying how we think about schools, and to consider matters of practical importance to members of oppressed groups. This volume reframes the field of educational administration, situating it unabashedly in a pluralistic society." --from the For...(Read More)
 
 
To Be One of Us
To Be One of Us (March 1993)
Cultural Conflict, Creative Democracy, and Education
Nancy Bevin Warehime - Author

"Anyone who ventures to discuss the moral implications of a given subject matter such as education, is asking for trouble. Much safer, the 'wise' will tell us, to keep distanced from the subject matter, to be reportorial rather than involved, or to let others work on the 'implications.' Fortunately for her readers, Dr. Warehime rejects such advice. She is not only a map-maker but a participant in what is happening on the terrain she has pictured ...(Read More)
 
 
Beyond Silenced Voices
Beyond Silenced Voices (January 1993)
Class, Race, and Gender in United States Schools
Lois Weis - Editor
Michelle Fine - Editor

This book addresses race, class, and gender in education in the United States. It debates the issues of institutionalized power and privilege, and the policies, discourses, and practices that silence powerless groups.

At the center of the silence are the most critical and powerful voices of all -- children and adolescents with their relentless desire to be heard and to survive. Weis and Fine go beyond examining policies, discourse, and pract...(Read More)
 
 
Principal Succession
Principal Succession (January 1993)
Establishing Leadership in Schools
Ann Weaver Hart - Author

"This book has the potential of being one of the year's most significant works in educational administration.

"Hart has made a significant contribution to the knowledge base of educational administration. She has developed a coherent description of a complex and dynamic phenomenon that provides substantive insights for the researcher-analyst. Additionally she has built a convincing case for new research directions and methodologies that wil...(Read More)
