From the Back Cover:

Current, thoughtful, and completely up-to-date, this classic text presents a broad introduction to the foundations of education through discussions of theory and practice in such critical areas as advocacy, legislation, and the current social, political, and economic climate. In it, teachers get a realistic perspective and approach to their work that is informed by serious, reflective philosophical and historical principles. This mixture of reflection on principles in the midst of pressures to change and remain current makes this edition especially unique.

 

·         This edition is updated to include coverage of the fast-paced world of information and underlying constructs that influence today’s schools.

 

·         The authors pay close attention to recent trends and issues in schools, as well as the emergence of Common Core State Standards, RTI and the continuing emphasis on assessment.

 

·         Included are multiple opportunities for students to make sense of the changes in the world, to determine a reflective response to the present, and to adjust responses and practices as new changes emerge.
