A Voice from Mount Parnassus: The Autobiography of William E. Drake, 1903-1989. Second Edition.
Willers, Jack Conrad, Ed.
This narrative chronicles the life of the nationally-known but controversial teacher educator, historian, and philosopher of education William E. Drake. Drake was the author of "American Education in Transition"; "The Intellectual Foundations of Modern Education"; and numerous articles and monographs. He taught for 50 years at Pennsylvania State University, the University of Missouri, and the University of Texas at Austin. In Drake's own words, issues facing teacher preparation and the nation as a whole are addressed. The retired teacher educator raises provocative questions about the fundamental purposes of education and citizenship in a democracy. (EH)
