Published at the start of the Harvard Educational Review's 75th anniversary year, it offers striking insights into educational history, psychology, policy, international education, and U.S. public education. These essays discuss how education scholars and practitioners have embraced, resisted, and sometimes provoked changes in this immensely important field." "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 in gaining a keen sense of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead."--BOOK JACKET.
