Restructuring for School Success
Robert A. DeVillar - Author
Christian J. Faltis - Author

This is an extremely important book for educators concerned with substantively addressing the issues facing public schooling as we move into the 1990's: first, because it examines critically the increasingly important role of technology in the instructional process, and second, because it confronts head-on the most significant challenge of education in our nation today -- how to make schools work for minority students and communities in the face of...(Read More)

The Significance of Place
Joe L. Kincheloe - Editor
William F. Pinar - Editor

"I think this is one of the best books, one of the most original books, I have come across in a decade of reading and writing in the field of curriculum theory. It challenges the standard curriculum discourse's preoccupation with standardization, universalization, and objectivity." -- Henry A. Giroux, Miama University

"I enjoyed reading a book that said something concrete and that taught me something new. I was fascinated by both the thesis...(Read More)

This is the first systematic study of the politics of "second generation discrimination" against Hispanic students.

Quantitative, historical, and legal analysis are used to examine the access of Hispanic students to equal educational opportunit...(Read More)

Ideals in Action
Claire V. Korn - Author

"As a parent who had to make the difficult decision to send my child to an alternative school without the benefit of Dr. Korn's book, I can safely say that Alternative American Schools: Ideals in Action would have made the choice far easier. Dr. Korn not only anticipated all the questions I had, but she answered them in a way that both validates my experiences and adds considerably to my understanding of why open education works so well. T...(Read More)

Empowerment through Multicultural Education
Empowerment through Multicultural Education (November 1990)
Christine E. Sleeter - Editor

"This volume is a powerful indictment of our public educational system. U.S. teachers and policymakers can no longer ignore issues of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and handicap in their teaching. We can no longer afford as a nation to stick our heads in the sand and label these issues as someone else's--their--problem. Teacher educators and others centrally concerned with schooling must directly address issues raised in this book." -- Ma...(Read More)
