Ever since its first edition, education professors have relied on the Sadkers for their comprehensive coverage of all aspects of American education. Teachers, Schools, and Society provides in-depth coverage of the foundations of education (history, philosophy, governance, and law) while also presenting a clear overview of what it means to be a teacher today, and including commentary on current critical topics. Most importantly, a multicultural/diversity-oriented approach is taken in every chapter to provide the most integrated and thorough coverage of diversity in any introduction to education textbook. Written in an informal and highly engaging style that appeals to students, Teachers, Schools, and Society is punctuated throughout with interesting features. The pedagogical system is expanded and refined in the sixth edition to provide extensive student support. New to the text is an interactive element that integrates reflection into all features and that links students to the Online Learning Center to perform interactive activities and to find additional resources. Combine comprehensive coverage; an engaging, interactive pedagogical system; and unsurpassable integrated coverage of diversity with an excellent author team, detailed appendices, and a complete supplements package, and you have an extraordinary resource for introductory coverage of American education.

Myra Pollack Sadker (1943-1995) pioneered much of the research documenting gender bias in America's schools. She was Professor of Education and Dean of the School of Education at American University. She died while undergoing treatment for breast cancer in 1995. Through her writings and lectures, Myra Sadker alerted Americans to the academic, physical, psychological and career costs of sexism. She wrote the first book for teachers on the issue of sexism in 1973. Over twenty years later, in 1994, she coauthored the first popular book on this topic: Failing at Fairness: How America's Schools Cheat Girls. Between these two publications, Myra Sadker brought her cause for educational equity to a national audience. Along with her husband David, Myra Sadker spoke in more than forty states and overseas, giving hundreds of presentations and workshops for teachers and parents concerned with the negative impact of sexist behaviors. She wrote scores of articles on how to raise and teach children free from the debilitating impact of sexism. In her name, Myra Sadker Advocates was established to continue her efforts and create more equitable and effective schools.
