For courses in Foundations of Education and Introduction to Teaching

A broad introduction to the foundations of education through current discussions of theory and practice in such critical areas as advocacy, legislation, and the current social, political, and economic climate

Current, thoughtful, and completely up-to-date, this classic text gives teachers a comprehensive look at the fast-paced world of information and the underlying constructs influencing today’s schools. Known for its clarification of, and response to the challenges today’s teachers must confront head on—and for providing the tools teachers can take with them into the classroom and into their schools—the book discusses such critical topics as advocacy, legislation, and the current social, political, and economic climate, giving teachers a realistic perspective and approach to their work. Thisemphasis on current practice is informed by serious, reflective philosophical and historical principles. This mixture of reflection on principles in the midst of pressures to change and remain current makes this edition especially unique.
