This text offers an alternative to traditional foundational texts by combining a point-of-view analysis with primary source readings. Pre-service and practicing teachers will find a solid introduction to the foundations disciplines - history, philosophy, politics, and sociology of education - and their application to educational issues including school organization and teaching, curriculum and pedagogic practices, education and inequality, and school reform and improvement. Features: Incorporates primary source readings that reflect the most updated perspectives and data, giving students illustrations of concepts and providing opportunities for critical and reflective thinking. Includes current achievement data representing the effects of educational reform. Offers a point of view that balances realistic analysis of problems and solutions called the foundations perspective. This provides prospective teachers with a view of the opportunities and possibilities of school reform. Discusses the separate foundations disciplines - politics, history, philosophy, sociology - that make up the foundations perspective giving students a base for understanding each of the foundations. Addresses the interdisciplinary application of foundations disciplines to educational problems and solutions showing students the interdisciplinary nature of the foundations perspective.
