American Education (Paperback)

£44.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Featuring current information and challenging perspectives on the latest issues and forces shaping the American educational system-with scholarship that is often cited as a primary source-Joel Spring introduces readers to the historical, political, social, and legal foundations of education and to the profession of teaching in the United States. In his signature straightforward, concise approach to describing complex issues, he illuminates events and topics that are often overlooked or whitewashed, giving students the opportunity to engage in critical thinking about education. Students come away informed on the latest topics, issues, and data and with a strong knowledge of the forces shaping the American educational system.





Thoroughly updated throughout, the 20th edition of this clear, authoritative text remains fresh and up-to-date, reflecting the many changes in education that have occurred since the publication of the previous edition such as

















The effects of the pandemic on schools, teachers, students, learning, and social goals















The latest U.S. Department of Education guidelines for school prayer, regulations on sexual harassment and Title IX, and guidelines for writing IEP















Expanded discussion of institutional racism















Coverage relating to transgender youth and athletics
