Appropriate for courses in social foundations of education or school and society courses. This text presents a unique opportunity to read many original source materials written by authors representing divergent points of view and a broad historical spectrum in the field of education. The author develops a personal philosophical perspective on the work of teaching; the function of schools in our society; and the relationships between education and productivity. It also provides exceptional coverage of community and the changing social, cultural, linguistic, and ethnic landscape of our society and its impact on schools, children, and teaching. Unlike most introductions to the profession, the issues raised in this book bring students face-to-face with themselves and with the challenging dilemmas they will confront as teachers. While subject matter knowledge and classroom management skills certainly are important to effective teaching, teachers must ultimately be responsive to students.
