An elusive science : the troubling history of education research by Ellen Condliffe Lagemann( Book )

14 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explains how and why education research has come to suffer from its low-status reputation. Starting with the establishment of education as a distinct discipline, the book shows how the field, in a misguided attempt to be "scientific," turned away from the holistic and deeply social and pragmatic vision of John Dewey. It portrays the major players (including Dewey and William James), the institutions, and the conflicts that have shaped the study of education. It discusses topics such as curriculum studies and the panic over the Soviet Union's Sputnik, school surveys and testing movements, and the increasing role of the federal government in education. Education research, the book argues, took a wrong turn when it abandoned Dewey's pragmatic vision for an emphasis on quantitative measurement and behaviorally oriented visions of what education should be. Its critical look back at the abandonment of Dewey's ideals and its consequences reveals much about the current state of education research. The book takes the reader into the last half of the 20th century, when the federal government came to see education research as a tool for increasing equality. It argues that its requirements for program evaluation resulted in an improved understanding of the education policy-making process, yet these evaluations provided grist for the mill for the Reagan administration, which slashed federal funding to education research just as it had begun to mature. The book also considers the promising directions education research may be taking in the future. (Each chapter includes extensive notes.) (Bt)
A generation of women : education in the lives of progressive reformers by Ellen Condliffe Lagemann( Book )

11 editions published between 1979 and 2013 in English and German and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a thorough evaluation of the experience shared by a crucial generation of American women, widely known but never fully understood: the progressive social reformers of the early twentieth century. Lagemann portrays five such reformers, Grace Dodge, Maud Nathan, Lillian Wald, Leonora O'Reilly, and Rose Schneiderman, all of New York. Her work breaks new ground with its analysis of the forces that shaped the development of these women, their personalities, their careers, and their consciousness. Lagemann's concern is education--not in the limited sense of going to college, but education as a lifelong "process of interaction that changes the self." She deals with the combined influences of pedagogy--especially that of parents, vocational mentors, and colleagues--work, and feminism. Lagemann skillfully demonstrates the effects of social, cultural, economic, and intellectual currents on the education of women in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The relationships Lagemann shows between education and individual achievement and between education and social change create a new understanding of feminism and progressivism in the early twentieth century

What is college for? : the public purpose of higher education by Ellen Condliffe Lagemann( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At a time when higher education attendance has never felt more mandatory for career success and economic growth, the distinguished contributors to this provocative collection ask readers to consider the civic mission of higher education as equally vital to the nation's well-being. Should higher education serve a greater public interest? In what ways should colleges and universities be asked to participate in public controversies? What should we expect institutions of higher education to contribute to the development of honesty and ethical judgment in the civic sphere? What should colleges do to foster greater intellectual curiosity and aesthetic appreciation in their students and communities, and why is this important for all Americans? --Book Description

Social policy, teaching and youth activism in the 1960s: The liberal reform vision of the National Teacher Corps by Bethany Lynn Rogers( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation is an historical study of the social and political construction of teachers that inspired the National Teacher Corps, and the insights it suggests about the history of teacher policy. Legislated in the Higher Education Act of 1965 as part of the Great Society anti-poverty arsenal, the Corps aimed to improve the education of disadvantaged students by improving the quality of teachers in poor schools. Specifically, the Corps proposed to make bright, liberal arts graduates into teaching interns in public schools serving poor children. The interns represented a new and different kind of candidate and their presence was meant to invigorate and redefine the profession, spearhead new ways of instructing disadvantaged students, and encourage new teacher training methods. In short, the Corps proposed to rehabilitate teaching by recruiting "better" people
Historical inquiry as a component of professional practice: Curricular modules for teacher education by Sonia Elena Murrow( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presented in this dissertation are separate but related arguments for historical study as a meaningful aspect of teachers' knowledge. First, historical inquiry can provide an understanding of the same problem-solving strategies that historians employ. Second, historical inquiry can foster professional identity, by providing teachers with common narratives and reference points. And third, historical inquiry can bring a satisfaction of understanding that can also contribute to professional identity
Intersections of power and knowledge: Chilean social scientists and the transition to democracy by Carolyn Kahn Sorkin( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three categories of social scientists who had opposed Pinochet, corresponding to three traditional roles for the intellectual, are identified and analyzed. Autocomplacientes tend to support the system, work in politics or the private sector, and advocate pragmatic use of social science to inform policy decisions. Autoflagelantes provide a critical voice, particularly in relation to autocomplacientes, and most often work in universities and research institutes. Apartados remain outside the fray, focused on scholarship. The three groups advocate very different responsibilities for social scientists in redemocratized Chile. While all three roles are essential to a healthy democracy, the tendency to dismiss autoflagelante apprehensions as anachronistic, and the broader public trend away from thoughtful analysis and participation, are cause for concern
P.T.A. business: A cultural history of how suburban women supported the public schools, 1920--1960 by Claudia J Keenan( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation explores the history of school volunteer work as pursued by local women in two suburban villages--Tuckahoe, N.Y. and Bronxville, N.Y.--between 1920 and 1960. Both villages are located about thirty minutes by train from Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. Bronxville is a homogeneous white upper-middle-class community; Tuckahoe is a multi-racial, multi-ethnic, economically diverse community. Historically, each village was dominated by a Protestant elite that ran the service and social clubs, church functions, local philanthropies, and politics. This elite also directed the local P.T.A. chapter, using social and cultural activities and devices to build community support for the public school during a period when the American middle and upper middle classes faced profound changes in social ideas and behavior, popular culture, and attitudes toward church and school
