AUTHOR

Ornstein, Allan C.

SUMMARY

Teaching and Schooling in America: Pre-and Post-September 11 examines 2,500 years of historical, philosophical, and educational thought, forcing the reader to think and rethink the issues of schooling and society. This text is concerned with life and death, peace and war, good and evil, miseducation and education, achievement and aptitude, and equality and inequality. It begins with the ancient Greeks and Romans and ends with a post-September 11 society, including American, Chinese, Indian, and Arabic cultures. At the level of society, specific topics deal with religion, morality, justice, colonialism, global poverty, the horrors of the 20th centurywar, death camps, and racial/ethnic hatredand now the new century with terrorism and cloning. At the educational level, the focus is on race, gender, class, social stratification, school finance, black/white achievement gaps, affirmative action, quotas, reparations, computers, satellite communications, and global education and understanding. The nature of the subject matter is controversial and the prose written in a critical, honest, and passionate style.Ornstein, Allan C. is the author of 'Teaching and Schooling in America Pre- And Post-September 11', published 2002 under ISBN 9780205367115 and ISBN 0205367119.
