Dilemmas of Schooling : Teaching and Social Change, Hardback Book

Dilemmas of Schooling : Teaching and Social Change Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Education series

Description

This study illuminates how the everyday activity of teachers raises profound economic, cultural, ethical, political and research issues, and provides a new and fruitful way of examining the practice of teaching.

The first part of the book offers a detailed description of sensitively recorded school situations, arising from work carried out in a number of British primary schools.

From the analysis of their research the authors constructed a theoretical perspective for looking at schooling in the form of sixteen `dilemmas'; the second half of the book is concerned with this perspective, and shows how the dilemmas constitute a language for looking at everyday schooling and relating it to more general political, social and cultural issues.

The book thus spans the gap in educational thinking between work with a firm empirical base and specifically theoretical studies.
