/9909K-9, 0-13-099090-6, Ornstein, Allan C., Pushing the Envelope: Critical Issues in Education//--> This casebook offers 27 research-based cases that explore current and controversial issues in education; the stakeholders involved in education—parents, teachers, administrators and other professionals; and the groups affected by educational controversies—the disenfranchised, those with special needs, liberals, conservatives, reformists, radicals, scientists, technocrats, humanists, and artists. The provocative writing style that asks “why” and “what if” in a way no other book does, is intended to stimulate and provoke future teachers to reflect on—and hopefully modify—their own ideas and values that will shape their teaching. A five-part organization covers philosophical/social foundations, curriculum and instruction, teacher professionalism, school policy and reform, and multicultural and international education. For teachers and future teachers of all grade levels, school administrators, and anyone with an interest in the education system.
