For courses in teacher education and professional education programs at the undergraduate or beginning graduate levels.
A systems approach to the major schools of philosophy of education that gives readers a cognitive map of the areas, as well as the ideology in relationship to educational theory.
Using a systems approach, this book examines the major schools of philosophy of education; considers the relationship of education to major ideologies including Nationalism, Liberalism, Conservatism, and Marxism; and analyzes the impact of philosophy and ideology on educational theory and practice through the theories of Essentialism, Perennialism, Social Reconstruction, and Critical Theory. Previously published as Philosophical and Ideological Perspectives on Education, and as New Perspectives on Philosophy and Education, this new version follows the content and organizational framework of these earlier editions. For each chapter it includes definitions of terms; historical contributors and antecedents; a general discussion of the particular philosophy, ideology, or theory; and relationships and application to education, especially to schools, curriculum instruction, and to teachers and students.
