Based upon the belief that a “foundations perspective” is a valuable tool in helping to improve schools, this book 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.
