The manufactured crisis : myths, fraud, and the attack on America's public schools by David C Berliner( Book )

20 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and held by 1,550 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Manufactured Crisis, two prominent scholars, prize-winning educational psychologist David C. Berliner and leading social psychologist Bruce J. Biddle, fight back with the good news. They debunk a whole series of familiar but untrue statistics about public schools - that SAT scores have been dropping, when for many groups they are in fact rising; that illiteracy is up, when in fact the numbers have been skewed because schools are now educating the traditionally disenfranchised in ever larger numbers; that investments in public education do not pay off when, in fact, they lead to greater student achievements and life earnings; that private schools are inherently better than public schools when, in fact, the evidence does not support this charge
Teachers make a difference by Thomas L Good( Book )

17 editions published between 1975 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 10-chapter book discusses the research process and how it can be used to improve educational practice. The assumption is made that schools can and do make a difference in the educational progress of students, and that research data can be used to improve educational practice. Important current educational topics are also presented. These topics are concerned with demonstrating that teachers are a critical factor in the success of any educational practice, and with illustrating the role and integration of research findings in educational practice. Chapters include the following: (a) "Schools, Teachers, and the Effects of Education;" (b) "Schools and the Critics;" (c) "Problems in Previous Research on Teachers and Schools;" (d) "Teachers Can Make a Difference;" (e) "Goals for Education;" (f) "Accountability;" (g) "Criterion-Referenced Testing;" (h) "Individualization and Open Education;" (I) "Measuring Noncognitive Variables;" and (j) "Toward Effectiveness." An extensive bibliography is included. (Js)

International handbook of teachers and teaching by Bruce J Biddle( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recent years have generated a huge increase in the number of research and scholarly works concerned with teachers and teaching, and this effort has generated new and important insights that are crucial for understanding education today. This handbook provides a host of chapters, written by leading authorities, that review both the major traditions of work and the newest perspectives, concepts, insights, and research-based knowledge concerned with teachers and teaching. Many of the chapters discuss developments that are international in scope, but coverage is also provided for education in a number of specific countries. Many chapters also review contemporary problems faced by educators and the dangers posed by recent, politically-inspired attempts to `reform' schools and school systems. The Handbook provides an invaluable resource for scholars, teacher-educators, graduate students, and all thoughtful persons concerned with the best thinking about teachers and teaching, current problems, and the future of education

The untested accusation : principals, research knowledge, and policy making in schools by Bruce J Biddle( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book concerns the use of research knowledge, particularly knowledge from research on education. It discusses concepts needed for understanding the use of research knowledge, reviews claims about the use of that knowledge in education, and provides evidence about these issues from a study based on interviews with 120 school principals in the United States and Australia. The study deals with several aspects of the utilisation process, among them how principals acquire, evaluate, and think about knowledge from research on education, as well as how that knowledge is used to influence policies and practices in their schools.

The unacknowledged disaster : youth poverty and educational failure in America by Bruce J Biddle( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book concerns two huge and closely-tied but widely ignored problems that plague the U.S. On the one hand, America tolerates a massive amount of youth poverty, while on the other, youth poverty is the major social factor generating failure in the country’s education. (More than one-fifth of American youths are now impoverished–a poverty rate far worse than those for American adults or the elderly and more than twice the size of youth poverty rates in other advanced nations–and poverty generates most educational failure effects in the U.S. often assigned to such factors as student race, broken homes, and the supposed failures of teachers and school administrators.) These problems have been studied extensively, and the tragedies they create are well known to scholars, but they are often misrepresented, misunderstood, or unacknowledged by far-right advocates, media figures, policy makers, and those concerned with serious problems that now beset the United States. This book reviews evidence concerning these problems and their dire effects, discusses ineffective or tragic outcomes that result when these problems are ignored, assesses why these problems are so often unacknowledged in the United States, and sets forth clear, evidence-based policies that can reduce the disastrous scope of American youth poverty and its destructive effects in education

Essays on the social systems of education by Bruce J Biddle( Book )

5 editions published between 1965 and 1967 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a collection of essays produced by members of an interdisciplinary seminar representing the various behavioral sciences. The group was given the assignment of conceptualizing the influences of mass media upon education as a social institution. The seminar was of a year's duration and was held at the university of missouri. The group, in addition to the individual essays, produced a series of propositions that might be put to experimental test. These papers were prepared to stimulate research into the effects of mass media upon educational theory and practice. (Jk)
