Philosophical and Ideological Voices in Education contains clearly-written analyses of the major philosophies, ideologies, and theories of education and includes a primary source selection representative of each topic treated in the book. In this text, significant recent events, movements, and situations (such as the terrorist attacks on 9-11 and the rise of ethnonationalism) demonstrate the relevance of philosophy and ideology to current situations. The book is divided into three major parts: (1) philosophies of education; (2) ideologies of education: (3) theories of education. Each chapter examines the nature, principles, and applications of each philosophy, ideology and theory to education, schooling, and curriculum and instruction. Features: Each chapter begins with clear, easy-to-follow definitions of the philosophy, ideology, or theory to aid the student in establishing a basic vocabulary at the beginning of the unit. Provides numerous examples and cases related to education, schooling, curriculum and instruction. The text builds connections between philosophy, ideology, and theory in chapters 1, 9, and 15 and creates a theoretical scaffolding, grid, or map that places ideas in perspective. A primary source selection in each chapter provides a range of viewpoints that create a perspective from classical ideas to postmodern theories with Focusing Questions for each primary source selection to guide students through the selection. Discussion Questions and Research and Inquiry Topics in each chapter contribute to further thinking, discussion about, debate, and inquiry about each topic. Suggested web sites dealing with philosophy, ideology, and theory enable students to find additional viewpoints through the worldwide web.
