about

This collection provides a multidisciplinary perspective on the development of educational policy and practice in the United States during the past century. It presents education as a complex social structure and process that has changed through the years and that defies simplistic solutions. By reviewing competing theories of education, the editors promote an analytical framework that welcomes educational conflict as creative and beneficial.
