Description

Joel Spring's American Education introduces readers to the historical, political, social, and legal foundations of education and to the profession of teaching in the United States. In his signature straightforward and concise approach to describing complex issues, Spring illuminates events and topics and that are often overlooked or whitewashed, giving students the opportunity to engage in critical thinking about education. In this edition he looks closely at the global context of education in the U.S. Featuring current information and challenging perspectives-with scholarship that is often cited as a primary source, students will come away from this clear, authoritative text informed on the latest topics, issues, and data and with a strong knowledge of the forces shaping of the American educational system. Changes in the 17th Edition include new and updated material and statistics on * economic theories related to "skills" education and employability * the conflict between a skills approach and cultural diversity * political differences regarding education among the Republican, Democratic, Libertarian and Green parties * social mobility and equality of opportunity as related to schooling * global migration and student diversity in US schools * charter schools and home schooling
