Acclaimed as the ''best overview in the field'' by the Teaching Philosophy and predicted to ''become the standard textbook in philosophy of education'' by Educational Theory, this now-classic text includes an entirely new chapter on problems of school reform, examining issues of equality, accountability, standards, and testing.
