Foundations of Education

Third Edition

Other Titles in:
Education | Education Studies

September 2021 | 580 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
A modern and comprehensive introduction to the field, Foundations of Education makes core topics in education accessible and personally meaningful to both undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a career as a teacher or administrator. In clear and direct prose, authors Leslie S. Kaplan and William A. Owings offer readers the breadth of coverage, scholarly depth, and conceptual analysis of contemporary issues in education that will help them understand the field. The authors situate issues in education within a broad social context, and then ask readers to connect these issues back to their own experiences as students, teachers, and constituents so they understand the many roles education plays in modern society. In addition to classic coverage of foundational topics such as educational philosophy, history, reform, law, and finance, the newly-revised Third Edition features a special emphasis on social justice issues, considers key debates around today’s education trends, and underscores the theory and practice behind meeting the needs of all learners.
