Sharpes' approach synthesizes historical, philosophical, and cultural standpoints. The text contains practical teaching applications alongside theory and an integrated emphasis of diversity and other multicultural themes. It also covers the history of schooling from ancient times to the present, including biographies of major non-Western figures as well as the canon of educational innovators.

The major strength of this book is in its expanded cultural vision, its display of proper gender sensitivities, its conceptualization of educational foundations that include history, philosophy and culture, and its scholarship that involved first-hand work in libraries and museums around the world. -- Professor Bhola, Indiana University
I am impressed by Sharpes' efforts to include practical activities for teachers. The suggested activities and case studies are clearly related to the themes raised in the text. -- Bill Sandoval, UCLA
This is an impressively broad scope of topics typically not found in foundations texts. The compilation of theories, philosophies and cultural explanations of schooling and learning are the best of any textbook I have seen. This text makes a long overdue contribution to the knowledge base of pre- and inservice teachers. Its multicultural and postmodern perspectives and the longstanding canon in the foundations of education. -- John W. Sipple
