From "backwardness" to "at-risk" : childhood learning difficulties and the contradictions of school reform by Barry M Franklin( )

11 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 2,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the joint effort of twentieth-century public school administrators and private philanthropy to initiate reforms to provide for children with learning difficulties. The author explores the development of these reforms from the establishment of special classes for backward children at the beginning of the century to the creation of programs for learning disabled children. He considers what this history tells us about current efforts to provide for at-risk students. He looks at both the way school administrators conceptualized childhood learning difficulties and the institutional arrangements which they introduced to accommodate these students, and pays particular attention to the preference of school administrators throughout this century for accommodating low achieving children in segregated classes and programs
Curriculum, community, and urban school reform by Barry M Franklin( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Barry M. Franklin's new work uses the concept of community as a lens for interpreting urban school reform since 1960. Focusing on the curriculum and employing case studies, he applies the concept to reform initiatives in a number of city school systems. Included are compensatory education, community control, mayoral takeovers, educational partnerships, and smaller learning communities. This comprehensive work concludes with a consideration of how we can employ the concept of cosmopolitanism to change the idea of community for a twenty-first century, globalized world and its schools."--Jacket

Cultural history and education : critical essays on knowledge and schooling by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together a group of leading scholars in the study of the cultural history of education. These scholars, whose work represents a variety of national contexts from throughout Europe, Latin America, and North America, contribute to a growing body of work that seeks to re-think historical studies in education by integrating the study of knowledge systems, otherwise known as "discourses" into traditional intellectual history. The articles included investigate how these discourses "construct, shape, coordinate, and constitute social practices through which individuals reason about their participation and identity", in the words of Popkewitz. The collection challenges the field of historical studies in education to move away from the historicism that still dominates it, and thus introduces new ways to think about the politics of knowledge and the problems of change and reform in education

Educational partnerships and the state : the paradoxes of governing schools, children, and families by Thomas S Popkewitz( Book )

20 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educational Partnerships and the State is a compelling collection of essays by an international group of scholars that provides a critical exploration of the role of partnerships in contemporary educational reform. Their focus is on the expanding role that collaboration between the public and private sector has come to play in the governing of schools, children, and families in response to an array of worldwide economic and social changes. The contributors to this volume highlight the new relationship between civil society and the state through partnerships and what that linkage has come to mean for an array of educational issues including academic achievement, school governance, school parent-relationships, teacher education, the construction of family and community involvement, and the discourses of reform as practices that order participation and action

Essays focus on the United States, the United Kingdom, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand."--BOOK JACKET
Systems of reason and the politics of schooling : school reform and sciences of education in the tradition of Thomas S. Popkewitz( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 1980s were an important decade for educational inquiry. It was the moment of the "linguistic turn," with its emphasis on the role of language as a constructor of reality, a structuring agent for institutions such as schools, and a medium for translating knowledge into elements of power for processes of social regulation. Drawing on the work and insights of educational researcher Thomas S. Popkewitz, this book shows how the linguistic turn provided an alternative to both mainline educational research grounded in the ideals of political liberalism and the effort of neo-Marxists to challenge liberal thinking in favor of a scholarship based on class conflict and economic determinism"--

American Curriculum Theory and the Problem of Social Control, 1918-1938 by Barry M Franklin( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Curriculum as a field of study emerged in an intellectual climate in which the idea of social control was dominant. The intent of this paper is to look historically at the integration of the idea of social control into curriculum discourse, to indicate its dominant position as the underlying assumption of most early curriculum work, and to suggest the importance of this fact for contemporary curriculum thought. Section I marks the historical formulation of the idea of social control in American thought. Sections ii and iii outline the theories of Ross and Elwood, contenders of the two basic viewpoints of overt and covert social control. Section iv looks at the social context in which the idea of social control was developed, while Section v deals with influences in operation on curriculum such as developments in the field of psychology. Section vi presents the views of other formative theorists in the emerging field of educational sociology. Section vii considers whether that initial orientation toward social control still remains. It is observed that the idea of social control continues to dominate and that the function of this orientation historically and perhaps today has been to restrict certain segments of the nation's population in the name of social homogeneity.

Social Perspective and Educational Knowledge Edward L. Thorndike Reexamined by Barry M Franklin( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the relationship between educational theorist Edward L. Thorndike's psychology and his social viewpoint. Many of the revisionists in educational history have oversimplified Thorndike's thought by not examining his views from this perspective. Thorndike's educational ideas and practices are reflections of certain fundamental constitutive structures that determine the very character of his thought at many different levels of conceptualization. One of the early behavioralists, Thorndike viewed education as the control of the human being through operant conditioning. This same desire for control permeated his social viewpoint in that he felt only experts such as scientists, lawyers, and businessmen should make decisions for the rest of society. As a consequence, these experts deserved a special and privileged place in society. Education, then, prepared the great mass of the population for their role as followers. Thus, viewing Thorndike's thought from the theoretical and social perspective, his conceptualizing of human behavior in terms of control led inextricably toward designing social institutions that reflected a control orientation.

George Herbert Mead, Curriculum Theorist The Curriculum Field and the Problem of Social Control by Barry M Franklin( Book )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper is one of three presented at a symposium intended to suggest how historical studies of the curriculum field can aid in identifying alternative perspectives to the prevailing scientific-technical perspective, an orientation that has dominated the curriculum field since its inception as a formal area of study. This paper contends that inherent in the scientific-technical perspective is a commitment to social control that defines control in an exploitive sense, as a means of protecting the interests of the few over and above those of the majority of society. It is this notion of social control that has historically dominated American curriculum theory. Another notion of social control, one that defines control in a constructive sense, as a means of protecting the interests of all segments of society, is to be found in the work of George Herbert Mead. An examination of Mead's thought can counter the prevailing orientation of the curriculum field. (Author)
