A core text for the Social Foundations course, this book provides an analytic framework that shows how and why certain school-society issues first arose in this country and changed over time. It also contains readings at the end of each chapter, which the student critiques using the same analytic framework as the authors employ in the text. This edition will expand the treatment of educational minorities and women, and will further refine the section on the the professionalism of teaching. The third edition will also include contemporary issues such as school choice, charter schools and privitization. Other new coverage includes: the role of technology in the literacy chapter, current data on education and schools in the United States today, legal and extra-legal issues like school law, and extended case discussion of contemporary American Indian education.
