Overview

Current Issues and Trends in Education synthesizes political, theoretical, social, and practical topics in a 21st Century context and promotes multicultural education, technology, and gender issues. This text is accessible enough to be used in an introductory education class and yet sophisticated enough to serve as a graduate textbook.

Its four parts cover 1) “Political, Economic, and Historical Issues and Trends,” 2) “Evolving Notions of Human Development and Learning,” 3) “Changing Views of Instruction,” and 4) “Issues in Accommodating Differences.”
