[This] is a debate-style reader designed to introduce students to controversies in education. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading educators and social commentators, reflect opposing positions and have been selected for their liveliness and substance and because of their value in a debate framework. For each issue, the editor provides a concise introduction and postscript summary. The introduction sets the stage for the debate as it is argued in the "yes" and "no" readings. The postscript briefly reviews the opposing opinions and suggests additional readings on the controversial issue under discussion.-Back cover.
