9780070144231: Wheels In The Head: Educational Philosophies of Authority, Freedom and Culture From Socrates To Human Rights

This overview of various philosophies and philosophers relevant to Education covers democracy, freedom, political despotism, human rights, and the politics of culture and of gender. Within each of these the text identifies obstacles to achieving freedom and political power. In the second edition a new concluding chapter proposes a solution for the authoritarian tendencies of government-operated schools and addresses the problem that for any school outside groups want to influence the content of instruction.

About the Author:

Joel Spring, professor of education at the New School University, received his Ph.D. in educational policy studies from the University of Wisconsin. His father was born a citizen of the Choctaw Nation in Indian Territory prior to the abolishment of the Choctaw government and the creation of Oklahoma. Professor Spring’s current interest in Native American culture and history is a reflection of his Indian background.

Professor Spring is the author of many books including The Cultural Transformation of a Native American Family and Its Tribe 1763-1995: A Basket of Apples; Images of American Life: A History of Ideological Management in Schools, Movies, Radio, and Television; and Political Agendas for Education: From the Christian Coalition to the Green Party.
