In Education Past and Present: Reflections on Research, Policy, and Practice, leading scholars comment on developments in the field of education over the past seventy-five years. Conceived as a commemoration of the Harvard Educational Review's 75th anniversary, this book offers new insights into educational history, psychology, policy, international education, and U.S. public education. Together, these essays analyze how education scholars and practitioners have embraced, resisted, and sometimes provoked changes in the way society has approached key issues in this immensely important field. The essays--from authors including Ellen Condliffe Lagemann, Kevin Kumashiro, Sonia Nieto, Jean Anyon, and Gary Orfield--address critical issues that have persisted for decades: the disconnect between educational psychologists and practitioners; the extent to which equity has been advanced through desegregation, bilingual education, and multicultural education; how history and the humanities might inform the practice of educational research; and how international education has shifted in concert with the expansion of service providers such as nongovernmental organizations. Featuring some of the foremost scholars in the field, Education Past and Present offers a concise, multidisciplinary assessment of the last seventy-five years of developments in education. The book will prove indispensable for those interested in assessing educational progress to date and gaining a keen sense of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
