An Education of Value : The Purposes and Practices of Schools Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


An Education of Value is about the problems involved in reforming American schools - in the past and in the decades to come.

The authors consider the historical, political, and philosophical tensions between the perennial twin goals of American education: equality and excellence.

They discuss the necessary preconditions for enduring progress: enhancing the conditions of teaching, improving the education and re-education of teachers, rethinking the curriculum, developing learning through the use of computers, and strengthening the leadership of schools.

The issues raised in this book concern every modern society, and the authors' ideas will challenge a wide audience.
