School and society by Walter Feinberg( Book )

29 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This widely used text has been expanded to include the most important issues in contemporary schooling. School and Society, Fourth Edition uses realistic case studies, dialogues, and open-ended questions designed to stimulate thinking about problems related to school and society including curriculum reform, social justice, and competing forms of research. Written in a style that speaks directly to today's educator, this book tackles such crucial questions as: Do school socialize students to become productive workers? Does schooling reproduce social class, and pass on ethnic and gender biases? Can a teacher avoid passing on dominant social and cultural values? What besides subjects do students really learn in schools?"--Jacket

Common schools/uncommon identities : national unity and cultural difference by Walter Feinberg( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Common Schools/Uncommon Identities, Walter Feinberg holds that public schools must maintain a commitment to liberal democratic values such as equality of opportunity, freedom of association, and individual development; at the same time, he challenges the view that this obligation is incompatible with demands for cultural recognition of minorities. He argues that varied social and historical conditions create different educational obligations to members of these many groups, and the realization of democracy and its basic values in our multicultural society requires that the differences of these groups must be taken into account in the conduct of public education

On higher ground : education and the case for affirmative action by Walter Feinberg( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, in response to recent attacks on principles of affirmative action for minorities, suggests that need-based affirmative action cannot substitute for programs based on race and gender. It proposes a theory of affirmative action based on the contention that affirmative action has three morally defensible goals: (1) correction of systematic and long-standing ruptures of the principle of equal opportunity; (2) advancement of the standing of people who have been discriminated against because of ascribed characteristics such as gender or skin color; and (3) meeting an historical obligation. The five chapters cover such topics as the background and need for a theory of affirmative action; markets, educational selection, poverty, and affirmative action; the case for backward-looking gender- and race-based policy rather than need-based affirmative action; group rights and historical obligations; and need, diversity, and group variation.

Education and democratic theory : finding a place for community participation in public school reform by A. Belden Fields( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much has been made of the gap between public schools and the communities they serve. This book shows how a group of teachers, parents, and community people in "Ed City" formed an educational reform group-the Project for Educational Democracy-to increase access to decision making in their school system, especially for members of the community who had previously been excluded. A combination of ethnographic research and theoretical reflection, this book addresses concepts of community, authority, representation, participation, and democracy

13 editions published in 1983 in English and German and held by 476 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Education and citizenship in liberal-democratic societies : teaching for cosmopolitan values and collective identities by Kevin McDonough( Book )

26 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this volume address the educational issues which arise when national, sub-national, and supra-national identities compete. How can we determine the limits of parental educational rights when the concern of liberalism to protect and promote children's autonomy conflicts with the desire to maintain communal integrity? Given the advances made by the forces of globalization, can the liberal-democratic state morally justify its traditional purpose of forging a cohesive national identity? Or has increasing globalization rendered this educational aim obsolete and morally corrupt? Should liberal education seek instead to foster a sense of global citizenship, even if so doing would suppress patriotic identification?" "In addressing these and many other questions, the volume examines the theoretical and practical issues at stake between naturalists, multi-culturalists, and cosmopolitans in the field of education. The fifteen essays, plus an introductory essay by the editors, provide a genuine, productive dialogue between political and legal philosophers and educational theorists."--Jacket

School choice policies and outcomes : empirical and philosophical perspectives by Walter Feinberg( Book )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps no school reform has generated as much interest and controversy in recent years as the proposal to have parents select their children's schools. Opponents of school choice fear that rolling back the government's role will lead to profit-driven financial scandals, sectarianism, and increased class and racial isolation. School choice advocates believe that state provision, oversight, and regulation stifle entrepreneurial creativity. The contributors to this volume not only provide a clear assessment of the logic and evidence supporting the different sides of the debate but also unmask the assumptions about the relationship between markets, government, and educational achievement. Their message is that neither markets nor government alone will guarantee freedom, equality, achievement, or community. If choice is to improve education and advance equality, then educational policy cannot be placed on automatic and left to the "free" market. Rather, choice policy must be deliberately directed toward meeting these goals, and this book shows how that could be accomplished. Following an introduction by the editors, this book contains these chapters: (1) Common Schooling and Educational Choice as a Response to Pluralism (Rob Reich); (2) Educational Equality and Varieties of School Choice (Harry Brighouse); (3) Evidence, the Conservative Paradigm, and School Choice (Kenneth R. Howe); (4) Intergenerational Justice and School Choice (Kathleen Knight Abowitz); (5) The Politics of Parental Choice: Theory and Evidence on Quality Information (Christopher Lubienski); (6) Social Class Differences in School Choice: The Role of Preferences (Courtney A. Bell); (7) Managers of Choice: Race, Gender, and the Political Ideology of the "New" Urban School Leadership (Janelle T. Scott); (8) Where Does the Power Lie Now? Devolution, Choice, and Democracy in Schooling (Liz Gordon); (9) Parental Choice: The Liberty Principle in Education Finance in Postapartheid South Africa (Bekisizwe S. Ndimande); and (10) The Dialectic of Parent Rights and Societal Obligation: Constraining Educational Choice (Walter Feinberg). An index is also included
For goodness sake : religious schools and education for democratic citizenry by Walter Feinberg( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
