The Character of American Higher Education and Intercollegiate Sport
The Character of American Higher Education and Intercollegiate Sport (November 1989)
Donald Chu - Author

"This book focuses on a vitally important topic -- the educational integrity of intercollegiate athletics. Chu not only relates intercollegiate athletics to the historical development of higher education, but emphasizes the political forces that both motivated and, in a sense, spoiled this institution. The book is not written as dry report; rather, more as commentary from a factual basis." -- Philip Smith

Intercollegiate sport is too...(Read More)

A Cultural Perspective
Gretchen B. Rossman - Editor
Dick Corbett - Editor

The quest for more effective schools has perhaps never been more challenging than it is today. Here, the authors consider and investigate that challenge from the cultural perspective.

Problems, Politics, and Possibilities

A Qualitatively Different Perspective on Gifted and Talented Education
David M. Fetterman - Author

Fetterman focuses on what actually works in gifted and talented education programs. Complementing the psychological perspective on gifted and talented education, he adopts an anthropological point of view, using methods such as lengthy interviews with students, teachers, parents, administrators, and others involved in the school programs; daily observation; and group discussions to elicit the insider's perspective.

A ground-breaking work, Fe...(Read More)
Moral Education for a Secular Society
Moral Education for a Secular Society (July 1988)
The Development of Moral Laique in Nineteenth Century France
Phyllis Stock-Morton - Author

"The study is well thought out and researched, while at the same time it is beautifully styled and crafted." -- Jack L. Roth, Case Western Reserve University

"The topic concerns more than nineteenth century French history. It concerns the assumptions as secularity in contemporary Western culture. The topic is fundamental to any field of study that deals with values." -- Philip L. Smith, The Ohio State University

The current controversy...(Read More)
Educational Theory as Theory of Conduct
Educational Theory as Theory of Conduct (July 1987)
From Aristotle to Dewey
J. J. Chambliss - Author

Chambliss presents clearly the position that educational theory is a theory of conduct rather than an applied science. It is theory of conduct, not about conduct. He reveals the richness of this idea and examines the various ways it has been discussed in the works of Aristotle, Rousseau, Dewey, and others. He also demonstrates its timeliness for today's educators by presenting it as an antidote to the current widespread tendency of ...(Read More)

A Social History

Mary Jo Maynes looks to school reform in early modern Europe to show the relevance of early ideas about schooling for understanding contemporary society. She presents the competing perspectives on issues such as the identity and motivations of school reformers, the broad societal changes that made educational reform seem imperative toward the end of the eighteenth century all over the West, the connections between educational change and economic de...(Read More)

Textbooks and the Socialization of Girls in Modern French Primary Schools
Linda L. Clark - Author

This first book-length study of girls' primary education in France gives a concrete picture of how Frenchwomen were, and are, prepared for their roles in society.

Until the 1960s, the primary school provided the only formal education for the majority of French children. Long recognized as a major inculcator of patriotic and moral values, the French primary school also played the vital role of preparing girls for their expected adult lives....(Read More)
