  • Im Reformhausby Anne Hamilton; Jürgen Kaube

    zu Klampen 2015; US$ 13.45

    Die deutsche Bildungspolitik glänzt durch Kurzatmigkeit und Reformeifer. Kaum ein Jahr vergeht, ohne dass die Kultusministerien umfangreiche Richtlinien und Erlässe verabschieden und deren prompte Umsetzung einklagen. Gleichbehandlung ist das Zauberwort, die Folgen ihrer Verwirklichung bleiben unreflektiert. Mittlerweile wird das Abitur als Instrument... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    In most countries in the world, school education is the business of the state.

    The 1980s were an important decade for educational inquiry. It was the moment of the ?linguistic turn,? with its emphasis on the role of language as a constructor of reality, a structuring agent for institutions such as schools, and a medium for translating knowledge into elements of power for processes of social regulation. Drawing on the work and... more...
