Description

Revised and updated with 25 new essays, the fourth edition of this bestselling collection brings together more than 30 leaders in the field of educational theory. An engaging exploration of the ideas and trends shaping education in today’s classrooms, Philosophy of Education includes topics on high-stakes testing, consumerism in education, and social justice issues in the classroom.

How can we teach students moral values while avoiding indoctrination? How should a teacher deal with controversial issues in the classroom? What role should standards play in education, and who develops those standards? And why is the link between theory and practice in the classroom important in the first place? Philosophy of Education provides students, teachers, and administrators with a lively and accessible introduction to the central debates and issues in education today.

Editorial Reviews

Hare and Portelli struck a fine balance between older and well-recognized pieces with newer scholarly work, as well as a healthy proportion of essays that reflected on the unique peculiarities of the Canadian education system. It is highly recommended to anyone teaching undergraduate or graduate philosophy, history, and sociology of education, as well as readers who are interested in the philosophy of education more broadly.

— <i>Alberta Journal of Education Research</i>

... Hare and Portelli have done a fine job in selecting and organizing recent work that concisely engages many of the central social, political, and pedagogical issues facing education today.

— <i>Teachers College Record</i>

[This book] is the strongest undergraduate anthology with which I am familiar.
