Trained capacities : John Dewey, rhetoric, and democratic practice by Brian Jackson( )

9 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this collection demonstrate American philosopher John Dewey's wide-ranging influence on rhetoric in an intellectual tradition that addresses the national culture's fundamental conflicts between self and society, freedom and responsibility, and individual advancement and the common good. Editors Brian Jackson and Gregory Clark propose that this influence is at work both in theoretical foundations, such as science, pragmatism, and religion, and in Dewey's debates with other public intellectuals, such as Jane Addams, Walter Lippmann, James Baldwin, and W.E.B. Du Bois. Jackson and Clark seek to establish Dewey as an essential source for those engaged in teaching others how to compose timely, appropriate, useful, and eloquent responses to the diverse and often-contentious rhetorical situations that develop in a democratic culture. What prepares people to intervene constructively in such situations is instruction in those rhetorical practices of democratic interaction that is implicit throughout Dewey's work. Dewey's writing provides a rich framework on which a distincly American tradition of a democratic rhetorical practice can be built - a tradition that combines the most useful concepts of classical rhetoric with those of modern progressive civic engagement. Jackson and Clark believe Dewey's practice takes rhetoric beyond the traditional emphasis on political democracy to provide connections to rich veins of American thought such as individualism, liberalism, progressive education, collectivism, pragmatism, and postindustrial science and communication. They frame Dewey's work as constituting a modern expression of continuing education for the "trained capacities" required to participate in democratic culture. -- from back cover

Streaming: an education system in miniature by Brian Jackson( Book )

26 editions published between 1964 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume a streamed school is studied in detail and parents' responses are recorded. Eleven plus is (and has been) under criticism, but many children are selected by a 'seven plus' because they are streamed into A, B or C classes. Few children escape the label once it is pinned on them -- less than six in one hundred change their stream. The study shows that on a national sample the date on which a child is born -- irrespective of his ability -- affects his or her stream at the age of 7 and his results at eleven plus. Finally ten streamed schools are compared, academically and socially

Education and the working class by Brian Jackson( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When first published this book had a significant influence on the campaign for comprehensive schools and it spoke to generations of working-class students who were either deterred by the class barriers erected by selective schools and elite universities, or, having broken through them to gain university entry, found themselves at sea.
