Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is the most carefully researched and edited text of this nature on the market. It comprehensively covers the range of issues that should be addressed in foundations/introduction to education courses, provides excellent teaching tools and available resources, and offers excellent teaching and learning activities throughout."

"[This] is an extremely well researched and informative textbook. The information is presented to the students in a clear manner. . . . The range of the topics covered in this Foundations of Education textbook is extensive."

"Ornstein and Levine have compiled a comprehensive survey of material important to building a knowledge base for professional practice. It is based on sound scholarship and offers students the opportunity to learn and to think critically about information necessary to meet the standards and guidelines set forth by numerous accrediting and governmental agencies. My overall opinion of this textbook is that it is the best one available to meet the needs of my students and program. . . . It presents the information without editorial (or authorial) comment and I appreciate that stance."
