The end of school reform

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2007 - Education - 83 pages
Education as a major social movement is coming to an end. The theoretical framework for this proposition derives from Thomas Kuhn's theory of paradigm shifts of major movements and Hegel's end of history thesis. The end of school reform thesis blends Arthur Danto's end of art, John Horgan's end of science, and Francis Fukuyama's end of history theses. Including interviews of education historians and policy professors, The End of School Reform maintains that educational innovation may still continue, but only on a piecemeal basis.
