The schoolhome : rethinking schools for changing families by Jane Roland Martin( )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in English and Japanese and held by 1,553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A century ago, John Dewey remarked that when home changes radically, school must change as well. With home, family, and gender roles dramatically altered in recent years, we are faced with a difficult problem: in the lives of more and more American children, no one is home. The Schoolhome proposes a solution. Drawing selectively from reform movements of the past and relating them to the unique needs of today's parents and children, Jane Martin presents a philosophy of education that is responsive to America's changed and changing realities. As more and more parents enter the workforce, the historic role of the domestic sphere in the education and development of children is drastically reduced. Consequently, Martin advocates removing the barriers between the school and the home--making school a metaphorical "home," a safe and nuturant environment that provides children with the experience of affection and connection otherwise missing or inconsistent in their lives. In this proposition, the traditional schoolhouse where children are drilled in the three Rs is transformed into a "schoolhome" where learning is animated by an ethic of social awareness. At a time when many school reformers are calling for a return to basics and lobbying for skills education and quick-fix initiatives, Martin urges us to reconsider the distinctive legacies of Dewey and Montessori and to conceive of a school that integrates the values of the home with those of social responsibility. With cultural diversity and gender equality among its explicit goals, the schoolhome expands upon Dewey's edict to educate the "whole child," seeking instead to educate all children in the culture's whole heritage. Martin eloquently challenges reformers to reclaim the founding fathers' vision of the nation as a domestic realm, and to imagine a learning environment whose curriculum and classroom practice reflect not merely an economic but a moral investment in the future of our children. More than a summons to action, this remarkable book is a call to rethink the assumptions we bring to the educational enterprise, and so, to act wisely

School was our life : remembering progressive education by Jane Roland Martin( )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The late 1930s and early 1940s was the peak of progressive education in the United States, and Elisabeth Irwin's Little Red School House in New York City was iconic in that movement. For the first time, stories and recollections from students who attended Little Red during this era have been collected by author Jane Roland Martin. Now in their late eighties, these classmates can still sing the songs they learned in elementary school and credit the progressive education they loved with shaping their outlooks and life trajectories. Martin frames these stories from the former students "tell it like it was" point of view with philosophical commentary, bringing to light the underpinnings of the kind of progressive education employed at Little Red and commenting critically on the endeavor. In a time when the role of the arts in education and public schooling itself are under attack in the United States, Martin makes a case for a different style of education designed for the defense of democracy and expresses hope that an education like hers can become an opportunity for all"--

Transforming the liberal curriculum : rewriting the story of Sophie and Emile by Jane Roland Martin( Book )

3 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growing body of literature on transforming the curriculum through the study of women contains several strands which serve as evidence of the range of issues this body of work addresses. It is argued that the genderized ideal of the educated person is an inadequate guide to the education of either sex in the late twentieth century United States. The genderized nature of the assumptions that make up the philosophical framework of the liberal curriculum will be revealed through a discussion of the work of Mary Wollstonecraft, John Dewey, Rousseau, and Plato. In conclusion, the transformational project's own prospects of success will be much improved if its adherents acknowledge the need not only to radically change the liberal curriculum but also to redefine both liberal education and its goals.

Leaders in philosophy of education : intellectual self portraits by Leonard J Waks( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the 1960s we have witnessed the development of philosophy of education as a vital intellectual field. Beginning with the work of Israel Scheffler at Harvard, and spreading rapidly to the United Kingdom under the influence of R.S. Peters and Paul Hirst at the London Institute of Education, analytical philosophers of education worked toward a new understanding of such central educational concepts as teaching, learning, explanation, curriculum, aims and objectives, freedom and authority, equality and liberal education. They also examined theoretical issues in educational research and critiqued reigning ideas in educational psychology. By the 1970s interest in the analysis of educational concepts and research methods had waned. A new generation of philosophers of education turned to new issues, including: intellectual and practical virtues, individual well-being, the education of girls and women, the ethics of care, creative thinking and imagination, multicultural education, globalization and many others. In this book, 24 leading philosophers of education since 1970 who remain influential today present the fascinating stories of their lives and important new contributions to the field. They trace their early experiences, initial encounters with philosophy and philosophy of education, creative directions in their work, mature ideas, and perceptions of future directions for the field. Each chapter contains a list of works chosen by the authors as their personal favorites. This book will be useful for all students of philosophy of education and for all scholars seeking to understand the main currents in this field of study. In a single volume it presents a bird's eye view of the entire field, as told in the words of its leading figures." -- Publisher's description
