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 831 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 742 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

7 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 410 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

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 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The argument put forth in this dissertation is that local P.T.A. leaders built support for the school by promoting socialization and acculturation, rather than instituting parent circles and discussion groups that were associated with the presumably more serious parent programs of the Child Study Association and the American Association of University Women. In the course of supporting the schools through social means, the P.T.A. effectively managed aspects of local culture and helped enable local residents to maintain traditions and filter out discomforting changes in social behavior and attitudes
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 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Institutionally, a rich community of private research centers in the regime years has yielded to opportunities in government, the private sector, and party-based think tanks. University programs have reopened, but lack the funds to re-establish research centers or draw top scholars. Furthermore, the success of the neo-liberal economic model and the concomitant growth of individualism are partially responsible for decreased interest in theoretical and scholarly work in the social sciences
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 9 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
