It is an historical collection on the central que...(Read More)
 
 
Democracy and the Arts of Schooling
Democracy and the Arts of Schooling (October 1995)
Donald Arnstine - Author

"In the midst of all the noise generated these days over educational reform, one almost despairs of finding any who speak with some understanding of what education is about, namely the full development of human sensibilities and the full exercise of humancapacities. This is precisely what Arnstine does.

"I think that parts of this book are brilliant. Arnstine has explicated a set of distinctions (sometimes in ways that are quit...(Read More)

Discipleship or Pilgrimage? (August 1995)
The Educator's Quest for Philosophy
Tony W. Johnson - Author

This interpretive history and critique of educational philosophy offers a reexamination and reconstruction of John Dewey's vision.
"Tony Johnson's book contains an explosive thesis: that philosophers of education make assumptions about knowing, learning, and the value of professionalism that are self-defeating and educationally destructive. In delineating these ironies, Johnson deepens the critique of the professionalized, departmentaliz...(Read More)

The Stone Trumpet
The Stone Trumpet (August 1994)
A Story of Practical School Reform, 1960-1990
Richard A. Gibboney - Author

"In the last ten years there has been much research on how to implement reforms; too little consideration has been given to what reforms are worth doing in the first place. Gibboney provides a useful Deweyan-progressive framework for assessing the educational value of reforms. The Stone Trumpet gives us insightful critiques of a wide variety of reforms from the new mathematics and science programs of the 1960s to competency-based edu...(Read More)

Wayfaring on the Margins
Florence R. Shepard - Author

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)
