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)

The Teacher as Expert
The Teacher as Expert (January 1992)
A Theoretical and Historical Examination
Robert Welker - Author

"The question of expertise in teaching runs to the heart of what we have become as a society. Experts are everywhere. What this means and whether this is a good thing are matters that need to be debated. Welker tells us that technology is not enough, and suggests that in teaching, as elsewhere, we can never get by without human judgment and deliberation over values. Welker serves to remind us that even the advocates of specializations and techni...(Read More)
