Castelli, Perry Anthony, Castelli, Vivian Lois


Exploring the Foundations of Education is an analytical introduction to the primary pillars of American Education which assists students and teachers to advance the role of an educator from that of a technician, maintaining the status quo, to a full professional, one who acts as a change agent in society by critiquing and improving humanity. Utilizing a critical theorist approach, this text raises the significant question…whose future, story, and interests does the school represent? Examining the foundations of education (history, philosophy, sociology, etc.) the Castellis articulate how formal schooling has functioned as a sorting mechanism shaped around the categories of race, gender, class, and ethnicity. In addition, they contend that the actual experience of empowerment for the vast majority of students become the defining feature of school.Castelli, Perry Anthony is the author of 'Exploring the Foundations of American Education', published 2007 under ISBN 9780971497214 and ISBN 0971497214.
