    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...

The degree of involvement of state agencies in the supervision, financing and organization of the... more...

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2014; US$ 16.54

    Reli für Jungs ist schwierig. Diese Überzeugung ist weit verbreitet. Beim Fortbildungen höre ich immer wieder die Frage: Wie kann ich die Jungs packen? Was kann ich tun, damit sich die Jungs mehr für den Religionsunterricht interessieren?

  • Demythologizing Educational Reformsby Arthur T. Costigan; Leslee Grey

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    There are dozens of myths surrounding educational reform today, maintaining the school?s role in economic competitiveness, the deficiency of teachers, the benefits of increased testing, and the worthiness of privatization. In this volume, the editors argue that this discussion has been co-opted to reflect the values and worldviews of special interest... more...

  • Fabricating Quality in Educationby Jenny Ozga; Peter Dahler-Larsen; Christina Segerholm; Hannu Simola

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 150.00
