Originally published in 1992. Herbert M. Kliebard is considered one of the foremost historians in the field of education. This is a collection of 12 seminal essays that represents the best of his writing and reflection on the history and theory of curriculum studies. Asserting that the 20th century in particular has been a critical period in the development of the American curriculum, Kliebard delves into the historical events and theoretical principles that have formed the curriculum. Among other things he talks about the decline of the humanities curriculum, important education reformers such as John Dewey, and the "enemies" of the liberal arts curriculum in Victorian England.

In this landmark volume, former students and colleagues of Herbert Kliebard explore issues he pioneered, and extend the discussion to new intellectual terrain. Published to honoru Kliebard upon his retirement from the faculty of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, these essays address a number of key issues including the Dewey legacy, the conflict between democracy and social control, curriculum differentiation, and liberal education. Written by a distinguished group of curriculum theorists and educational historians, the essays offer researchers substantive treatment of an array of key curricular issues and provide a conceptually rich text for courses in curriculum and educational history.

Since its beginnings at the turn of the 20th century, the science of education has been regarded as a poor relation, reluctantly tolerated at the margins of academe. In this history of education research, Condliffe explains how this came to be.

Mission Statement: The book series, entitled Research in Curriculum and Instruction, will focus on a) considerations of curriculum practices at school, district, state, and federal levels, b) relationship of curriculum practices to curriculum theories and societal issues, c) concerns derived from curriculum policy analyses and from analyses of various curriculum advocacies, and d) insights derived from investigations into curriculum history. Although the series will emphasize the American curriculum scene, aspects of curriculum practice and theory embedded in non-US countries will not be overlooked. Furthermore, this series will not restrict its concern to general curriculum matters, but it will draw explicit attention to curriculum issues relating to the several curriculum subjects. The series' primary concern will be to illuminate practice and issues toward informed and improved curriculum practice. This volume will contain selected papers presented at meetings of the Society for the Study of curriculum History across the past decade plus several specially commissioned papers from senior scholars in the field. Professor Field was the Society's President for some time during that period. Papers will treat dimensions of the development of the American school curriculum, both elementary and secondary.

Education, Experience and Existence proposes a new way of understanding education that delves beneath the conflict, confusion and compromise that characterize its long history. At the heart of this new understanding is what John Dewey strove to expound: a coherent theory of experience. Dewey’s reputation as a pragmatist is well known, but where experience is concerned pragmatism is only half the story. The other half is phenomenological, as crafted by Martin Heidegger. Encompassing both is Charles Sanders Peirce, whose philosophy draws pragmatism and phenomenology together in an embrace which enables a truly experiential philosophy to emerge. The book approaches the problem of confusion in education and philosophy by beginning with our most basic understandings of existence. Existence as an interaction is the starting point of modern science, and existence as individuality offers an aesthetic origin, attending to existence as a simple unity. In our contemporary world where scientific ways of thinking are privileged, the aesthetic whole is often overlooked, especially in education. Yet both are connected. A coherent theory of experience is therefore a marriage between phenomenology and pragmatism, enabling each to maintain its position by acknowledging how both are required. The book is divided into three main parts: - confusion in philosophy and education - a coherent theory of experience - a coherent theory of education. Quay suggests that education benefits from such a coherent theory of experience by better comprehending its connection to life. More than just knowing, more than just doing, education is about being. This book will be of interest to philosophers, educators and educational philosophers.

Welche Geschichten erzählen uns pädagogische Organisationen, wenn sie auf ihre Innovations- und Anpassungspraxen hin befragt werden? Der Band untersucht das Phänomen der Persistenz, d.h. des Überlebens einer Einrichtung unter sich wandelnden Kontextbedingungen, als organisationales Lernen. Dabei geht es um das Verständnis einzelner realer Einrichtungen, methodologisch also um Fallstudien u.a. an Addams' Hull House, Franckes Anstalten, Montessoris Kinderhaus, Homer Lanes Little Commonwealth, Decrolys Schule.

The Science Education of American Girls provides a comparative analysis of the science education of adolescent boys and girls, and analyzes the evolution of girls' scientific interests from the antebellum era through the twentieth century. Kim Tolley expands the understanding of the structural and cultural obstacles that emerged to transform what, in the early nineteenth century, was regarded as a "girl's subject." As the form and content of pre-college science education developed, Tolley argues, direct competition between the sexes increased. Subsequently, the cultural construction of science as a male subject limited access and opportunity for girls.

In the 1990s the debate over what history, and more importantly whose history, should be taught in American schools resonated through the halls of Congress, the national press, and the nation's schools. Politicians such as Lynne Cheney, Newt Gingrich, and Senator Slade Gorton, and pundits such as Rush Limbaugh, John Leo, and Charles Krauthammer fiercely denounced the findings of the National Standards for History which, subsequently, became a major battleground in the nation's ongoing struggle to define its historical identity. To help us understand what happened, Linda Symcox traces the genealogy of the National History Standards Project from its origins as a neo-conservative reform movement to the drafting of the Standards, through the 18 months of controversy and the debate that ensued, and the aftermath. Broad in scope, this case study includes debates on social history, world history, multiculturalism, established canons, national identity, cultural history, and "liberal education." Symcox brilliantly illuminates the larger issue of how educational policy is made and contested in the United States, revealing how a debate about our children's education actually became a struggle between competing political forces.
