Summary
This book brings together leading scholars of education to analyze different ways of looking at school. Steinberg, Kincheloe, and a group of contributors argue that the goals of education are reduced by a superficial public conversation. Simplistic political views and strategies for reform ignore the complexity of the educational process. The debate over the purpose of schooling is lost. This dynamic produces an impoverished debate about the role of schools in a democratic society, the nature of learning, what constitutes good teaching, diverse ways of evaluating educational excellence, and a myriad of other pedagogical issues. What You Don't Know About Schools gives professors, students of education, and teachers new strategies and goals for the future of schooling in the United States
