This brief, interpretive history of American schooling focuses on the evolving relationship between education and social change. Like its predecessors, this new edition adopts a thematic approach, investigating the impact of social forces such as industrialization, urbanization, immigration, globalization, and cultural conflict on the development of schools and other educational institutions. It also examines the various ways that schools have contributed to social change, particularly in enhancing the status and accomplishments of certain social groups and not others. Detailed accounts of the experiences of women and minority groups in American history consider how their lives have been affected by education, while "Focal Point" sections within each chapter allow the reader to hone in on key moments in history and their relevance within the broader scope of American schooling from the colonial era to the present. This new edition has been comprehensively updated and edited for greater readability and clarity. It offers a revised final chapter, updated to include recent change in education politics and policy, in particular the decline of No Child Left Behind and the impact of the Common Core and movements against it. Further additions include enhanced coverage of colonial and early post-colonial American schooling, added materials on persistent issues such as race in education, an updated discussion of the GED program, and a closer look at the role of technology in schools. With its nuanced treatment of both historical and contemporary factors influencing the modern school system, this book remains an excellent resource for investigating and critiquing the social, economic, and cultural development of American education.

History is the true record of an absent past. The trust between historians and their readers has always been founded upon this traditional claim. In a postmodern world, that claim and that trust have both been challenged as never before, drawing either angry or apologetic responses from historians. Hermeneutics, History and Memory answers differently. It sees the sceptical challenge as an opportunity for reflection on history’s key processes and practices, and draws upon methodological resources that are truly history’s own, but from which it has become estranged. In seeking to restore these resources, to return history to its roots, this book presents a novel contribution to topical academic debate, focusing principally upon: the challenges and detours of historical methodology hermeneutic interpretation in history the work of Paul Ricoeur the relation between history and memory. Hermeneutics, History and Memory will appeal to experienced historical researchers who seek to explore the theoretical and methodological foundations of their empirical investigations. It will also be highly beneficial to research students in history and the social sciences concerned with understanding the principles and practices through which documentary analysis and in-depth interview can be both validated and conducted.

Why is primary education so high on the political agenda, and so contentious? Why is the performance of primary schools so often in the media spotlight? Why should primary teachers trouble themselves with the politics of their work? Politics and the Primary Teacher is an accessible introduction to some of the thorniest aspects of a primary teacher’s role. It aims to support your understanding of the constant changes in education policy, give you confidence to engage critically with current political debates, and consider how you might shape your response accordingly. Including questions for reflection, and selected further reading and resources, it examines the complex interface between the work of a teacher and the world beyond the classroom walls. Key issues explored include: assessment, testing, league tables and national accountability measures the media’s impact in shaping both local and national views about education political implications of new policies such as academies and free schools conditions of work in the classroom and ‘workforce remodelling’ the curriculum, its purposes and structure pedagogy and teaching methods education for citizenship, health and well-being. Politics and the Primary Teacher is essential reading for all education professionals who want to think more deeply about primary education, what it offers, and how children, families and communities are served by the primary school.

Der vorliegende Band stellt den ersten in der Reihe Sozioökonomische Bildung und Wissenschaft dar und greift die Debatte um die theoretische, method(olog)ische, paradigmatische und curriculare Einseitigkeit der Volkswirtschaftslehre sowie der traditionellen ökonomischen Bildung auf, um Entwicklungslinien und Perspektiven sozioökonomischer Bildung und Wissenschaft zu konturieren. Die auf Pluralität, Interdisziplinarität, Multiparadigmatizität und (kritische) Reflexion angelegten Zugänge sozioökonomischer Bildung und Wissenschaft schlagen die Brücke zwischen ihren zentralen sozialwissenschaftlichen Bezugsdisziplinen Wirtschaftswissenschaften, Soziologie, Politikwissenschaft und Geographie sowie Geschichtswissenschaft, Philosophie und Erziehungswissenschaft. Die Beiträge sollen Impulse für die wissenschaftliche Diskussion über die Erneuerung der Ökonomik, der Ökonomie und der ökonomischen Bildung liefern.

This book grapples with two basic questions. What is history? And How can history help illuminate contemporary concerns about the nature and character of America's schools? From antiquity to the postmodern present, history has served multiple purposes, including a basic human need to learn from what came before. Americans have long invested considerable time, energy, and emotion in their schools, both private and public, and a knowledge of history helps explain why.

Comparing Special Education

Origins to Contemporary Paradoxes

In today's schools the number of students who receive additional resources to access the curriculum is growing rapidly, and the ongoing expansion of special education is among the most significant worldwide educational developments of the past century. Yet even among developed democracies the range of access varies hugely, from one student in twenty to one student in three. In contemporary conflicts about educational standards and accountability, special education plays a key role as it draws the boundaries between exclusion and inclusion. Comparing Special Education unites in-depth comparative and historical studies with analyses of global trends, with a particular focus on special and inclusive education in the United States, England, France, and Germany. The authors examine the causes and consequences of various institutional and organizational developments, illustrate differences in forms of educational governance and social policy priorities, and highlight the evolution of social logics from segregation of students with special educational needs to their inclusion in local schools.

Das Lehrwerk ”Mein Islambuch“ vermittelt Kindern islamischen Glaubens die Grundlagen ihrer Religion in deutscher Sprache. Sie lernen die Normen und Werte ihrer Religion kennen und ihren Glauben schätzen und lieben. Das Buch stärkt sie in ihrer Identität als Muslim/Muslimin und ihrer Zugehörigkeit zur Gemeinschaft der Muslime. Es gibt ihnen Orientierungshilfen und unterstützt sie dabei, ihren Platz in der multikulturellen Gesellschaft zu finden. Die Schülerinnen und Schüler erwerben dabei gleichzeitig auch die Fähigkeit, über diese eigene Lebenswelt zu reflektieren, in deutscher Sprache über ihre Religion zu kommunizieren und sie ihren Mitschülern anderer Glaubensrichtungen entsprechend und wertschätzend zu vermitteln. Dabei geht es weniger um die Vielfalt konfessioneller Orientierungen innerhalb des Islam, als vielmehr um die grundsätzliche Identitätsbildung der Schülerinnen und Schüler. Es geht auch um tolerierenden Respekt gegenüber anderen, nichtislamischen religiösen Anschauungen. Die Bücher stellen auch dar, was Muslime, Christen und Juden verbindet, nämlich die gemeinsamen Grundlagen der Religion: Gleichheit der Menschen vor Gott, Wertschätzung der Schöpfung, Verpflichtung zu sozialer Gerechtigkeit und Barmherzigkeit, Wahrhaftigkeit und Liebe, Forderung nach Bewahrung des Friedens. ”Mein Islambuch“ ist mit anschaulichem, kindgerechtem Bildmaterial ausgestattet. Zu allen Bänden erscheinen Lehrermaterialien mit Informationen zum Sachverhalt, unterrichtspraktischen Anregungen und Kopiervorlagen. (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags).

Despite the increased trend towards secularisation in state schooling, issues of religion and spirituality have remained important. Increased pluralism within societies through expanding migration patterns is changing the religious and cultural contours of many countries in Europe and North America, and is creating a need for a deeper understanding of religious diversity. However, the lack of religious or spiritual education within the educational curriculum leaves a moral vacuum that can become a space to be exploited by religious extremism. More recently, religiously motivated incidences of terrorism in several parts of the world have heightened prejudicial attitudes and distrust of certain religions, in particular. These are profound concerns and there is an urgency to examine how religion, religious education and interfaith initiatives can address such misconceptions. This book is thus timely, focusing on an area that is often neglected, particularly on the role of religion in education for sustainable development. While religious organisations and faith communities have had a long history of involvement in both schooling and social service delivery in many countries, their role in reaching development goals has not always been explicitly recognised, as is evident even in the United Nations’ most recently conceptualised 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Undeniably, the integration of religious dialogue into mainstream development issues is crucial because deep cleavages resulting from the issue of minority religious rights continue to give cause for concern and conflict in many countries. This edited book explores some of these tensions and issues and draws parallels across differing geographical contexts to help enhance our collective and comparative understanding of the role of religious education and institutions in advancing the post-2015 development agenda. The contributors to this volume each demonstrate that, while religion in education can contribute to understanding and respect, it is also a space that can be contested and co-opted. Without addressing the salience of religion, however, it will not be possible to foster peace and combat discrimination and prejudice. This book will be of interest to researchers, scholars and students in the field of comparative education and development, religious studies, theology and teacher development and training. This book may also be of interest to national and international policy makers. There are also numerous faith-based organisations, as well as other non-governmental organisations (NGOs) working on religion and education issues that may find these case studies a useful resource.

Hispanics and the Future of America presents details of the complex story of a population that varies in many dimensions, including national origin, immigration status, and generation. The papers in this volume draw on a wide variety of data sources to describe the contours of this population, from the perspectives of history, demography, geography, education, family, employment, economic well-being, health, and political engagement. They provide a rich source of information for researchers, policy makers, and others who want to better understand the fast-growing and diverse population that we call “Hispanic.†The current period is a critical one for getting a better understanding of how Hispanics are being shaped by the U.S. experience. This will, in turn, affect the United States and the contours of the Hispanic future remain uncertain. The uncertainties include such issues as whether Hispanics, especially immigrants, improve their educational attainment and fluency in English and thereby improve their economic position; whether growing numbers of foreign-born Hispanics become citizens and achieve empowerment at the ballot box and through elected office; whether impending health problems are successfully averted; and whether Hispanics’ geographic dispersal accelerates their spatial and social integration. The papers in this volume provide invaluable information to explore these issues.
