A modern and comprehensive introduction to the field, Foundations of Education makes core topics in education accessible and personally meaningful to students pursuing a career within the education profession. In a 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 that will help them gain a realistic and insightful perspective of the field. 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.
