The Politics of Education.
Educational Foundations, v5 n1 spec iss Win 1991
This special theme issue of "Educational Foundations" contains five articles on the theme of "The Politics of Education." In Marie E. Wirsing's "Academic Freedom and Teaching Foundations of Education: A Personal Memoir," the history of academic freedom, including the constant struggles to preserve it and examples of significant infringement, are discussed. In "Education and Community-Building in the European Community: The Impact of 1992," D. G. Mulcahy examines how the European Community has shaped and begun to implement educational policy. Bruce S. Cooper and Grace Dondero describe the complexities and changes in schooling, religious life, and parental expectations in the United States over the past 25 years in "Survival, Change, and Demands on America's Private Schools: Trends and Policies." Paul Farber asks what part teachers play in the politics of education in "The Politics of Teacher Authority." In "Towards a Postmodern Politics: Knowledge and Teachers," William J. Bain and Mustafa Umit Kiziltan suggest that the modern politics of education has evolved out of concerns with access to knowledge (credentials) and that as a result the modern school is seen to hold the promise of preparation for material well-being and the development of a more fully human being.
