Distrust and Educational Change: Overcoming Barriers to Just and Lasting Reform

Author: Katherine Schultz
Abstract: Through a set of illustrative stories, Schultz analyzes the role of distrust in the failure of educational change and transformation. By creating a taxonomy that includes three kinds of distrust—relational, structural, and contextual—she suggests ways to analyze, understand, and discuss the impact of distrust on schools, districts, and large-scale educational processes. She concludes by offering concrete recommendations for addressing distrust in classrooms, schools, and districts; discusses the roles played by teachers, principals, parents, and students in building trust; and points to schools and programs where distrust has been acknowledged and repaired successfully. By creating spaces that honor human dignity, Schultz argues, it is possible to replace a culture of systemic distrust built over time.

Dr. David Murray: Superintendent of Education in the Empire of Japan, 1873-1879

Author: Benjamin Duke
Abstract: This is the first biography in English of an uncommon American, Dr. David Murray, a professor of mathematics at Rutgers College, who was appointed by the Japanese government as Superintendent of Education in the Empire of Japan in 1873. The founding of the Gakusei—the first public school system launched in Japan—marks the beginning of modern education in Japan, accommodating all children of elementary school age. Murray’s unwavering commitment to its success renders him an educational pioneer in Japan in the modern world. 

Benjamin Duke has compiled this comprehensive biography of David Murray to showcase Murray’s work, both in assisting around 100 samurai students in their studies at Rutgers, and in his unprecedented role in early Japanese-American relations. This fascinating story uncovers a little-known link between Rutgers University and Japan, and it is the only book to conclude that Rutgers made a greater contribution to the development of modern education in the early Meiji Era than any other non-Japanese college or university in the world

Educação e tecnologias: Abordagens críticas

Author: Giselle Martins dos Santos Ferreira et al.
Abstract:

O e-Book bilíngue (Português/Inglês) Educação e Tecnologia: abordagens críticas (Education and Technology: critical approaches)congrega textos que questionam a hipotética neutralidade da tecnologia e promovem a desnaturalização de sua presença em contextos educacionais. Os capítulos que o compõem abordam questões de poder e consideram especificidades contextuais e históricas, escapando da usual euforia em torno das tecnologias digitais e da perspectiva “solucionista” que tende a obscurecer a diferença e a diversidade. Publicada em 2017, esta coletânea de 12 textos escritos por autores de diversos países, incluindo pesquisadores internacionalmente renomados, se mantém uma fonte relevante e atual para pesquisadores na área. Complementarmente aos textos, o livro inclui 24 imagens gentilmente cedidas pelo artista polonês Pawel Kuczynzki, conhecido por suas sutis, porém profundas, críticas a aspectos da contemporaneidade relacionados à expansão das tecnologias digitais.

Educações, culturas e hackers: Escritos e reflexões

Author: Nelson de Luca Pretto
Abstract:

Educações, Culturas e Hackers: escritos é reflexões é composto de duas partes, sendo que na primeira – Escritos – o autor faz um reflexão sobre a perspectiva plural que deve acompanhar a educação e a cultura, propondo, ao fim, a ideia de uma educação (ou educações) com um jeito hacker de ser. Para o autor, importante considerar que “os hackers são aqueles que fazem apaixonadamente e de forma aberta e colaborativa aquilo que gostam e, dessa, forma, é isso mesmo que deve ser um professor e a educação, sempre pensada na perspectiva plural.”

Na segunda parte – Reflexões -, estão organizados pequenos artigos publicados em jornais de Salvador e de fora da Bahia, em blogues e revistas eletrônicas, além de outros textos originais, escritos para o livro e, com isso, dão uma ideia de unidade no pensamento do líder do grupo de Pesquisa Educação, Comunicação e Tecnologias (GEC) da Faculdade de Educação da Universidade Federal da Bahia (UFBA).

Educating Teachers and Tomorrow's Students Through Service-Learning Pedagogy

Editor: Virginia M. Jagla
Editor: Kathleen C. Tice
Abstract: Service-learning is a powerful method of teaching and learning that has been used effectively for more than two decades. This volume contributes further to the Advances in Service-Learning Research series that focuses upon service-learning in teacher education. Research and theory indicate that knowledge of service-learning pedagogy and how to implement it in teacher candidates' future classrooms can enhance field experiences of teacher education and the civic mission of schools. However, research also reminds us that that the practice of service-learning is nuanced and complex. No two service-learning experiences are alike, yet universal characteristics across service-learning experiences define its essence and distinction.

Editor: Festus E. Obiakor
Editor: Tachelle Banks
Editor: Jessica Graves
Editor: Anthony F. Rotatori
Abstract: To support excellence in ECE, it is critical how the knowledge about individual children and child development principles combined with the knowledge of effective early learning practices. Effective early childhood education involves an interdisciplinary collaborative process that is influenced by many factors. We present these aforementioned realities in Educating Young Children With and Without Exceptionalities: New Perspectives. In addition, we argue that general and special educators need to focus on applying new knowledge to better address critical issues that advance the field of educator preparation and improve educational outcomes for young children.

Education, Equity, and the States: How Variations in State Governance Make or Break Reform

Author: Sara E. Dahill-Brown
Abstract: Drawing on original research, Sara E. Dahill-Brown highlights three major factors that differ from state to state: the number of districts (fragmentation); the degree to which education governance is separated from other political issues (exceptionalism); and how much state legislation tends to impinge on local autonomy (local control). She examines the historical and political trends that have shaped differences among the states and how they affect the impact of education reforms. By identifying typical patterns in state governance, Dahill-Brown suggests ways to work with varying governance structures to lead to more successful and equitable outcomes.

Educational Inequality and School Finance: Why Money Matters for America’s Students

Author: Bruce D. Baker
Abstract: Baker explores school finance, the school and classroom resources derived from school funding, and how and why those resources matter. He provides a critical examination of popular assumptions that undergird the policy discourse around school funding—notably, that money doesn’t matter and that we are spending more and getting less—and shows how these misunderstandings contribute to our reluctance to increase investment in education at a time when the demands on our educational system are rising.

Epistemologia da práxis na formação de professores - Perspectiva Crítico-emancipadora

Author: Kátia Augusta Curado Pinheiro Cordeiro da Silva
Abstract:

A proposta deste livro está vinculada a um estudo bibliográfico, que busca construir conhecimentos que contribuam para uma proposta de formação de professores da Educação Básica, pensada a partir da epistemologia da práxis. Essas questões surgiram para se (re)pensar a formação de professores cuja referência é a atividade humana expressa na práxis e no trabalho. Considera-se que o professor necessita, pela natureza do seu trabalho, vivenciar uma formação de natureza científica, artística, ética e técnica, de elevado nível, que impõe, portanto, suas atividades de prática e teoria. O intuito é construir o sentido da práxis como ação de conhecer e transformar, sustentada pelo conhecimento da realidade e reflexão, que fortalece o sentido histórico da ação educativa a favor da emancipação. Assim, o objetivo central da obra é fundamentar a formação de professores - inicial e continuada - com base nos pressupostos de uma educação crítico-emancipadora, em que se entende a realidade como pseudoconcreta, dialética e contraditória com vistas e possibilidades da emancipação humana tendo a escola como um dos espaços educativos para viabilizar tal processo.

Estudos de Bebês e Diálogos com a Sociologia

Editor: Gabriela Guarnieri de Campos Tebet
Abstract: O livro Estudos de bebês e diálogos com a Sociologia, organizado pela Profa. Dra. Gabriela Tebet, docente credenciada no Programa de Pós-Graduação em Educação da Unicamp, reúne 33 capítulos de livros que abordam a temática sob diferentes perspectivas teóricas, metodológicas e do campo das experiências formativas, haja vista que os autores são docentes e pesquisadores vinculados a instituições brasileiras e de outros cinco diferentes países, além de estudantes de pós-graduação e de graduação da Unicamp e UFSCar. A obra foi submetida a Edital Público elaborado pelo Programa de Pós-Graduação em Educação da Unicamp (PPGE/Unicamp), sediado na Faculdade de Educação, e escolhida para sua publicação com financiamento parcial da verba PROAP/CAPES. Reúne textos de docentes do PPGE/Unicamp de três diferentes Linhas de Pesquisa: Educação e Ciências Sociais, Linguagem e Arte em Educação e Psicologia e Educação. E de três grupos de pesquisa da Faculdade de Educação. Expressa o trabalho desses colegas em redes de colaboração de pesquisa e formação com pesquisadores da Argentina, Escócia, França, Portugal e Reino Unido, bem como, no Brasil, com a UFPR, no Paraná; a UESC, na Bahia; a UNIFESP, da USP, e a UFSCar, em São Paulo; a UNIFAL, da UFLA, e da UFJF em Minas Gerais, e a UFF, no Rio de Janeiro. É um retrato em multiplicidades de um campo de estudos e pesquisas cujas densidades conceituais, dos processos de investigação acadêmica e dos percursos de formação na docência e na educação de forma mais ampliada, expandem significações já pensadas e que, muitas vezes, se enraízam em discursos e práticas que visibilizam a infância e os bebês como pontos de estabilidade, a fim de os analisar, interpretar e os figurar.  (Excerto da Apresentação, elaborada por Antônio Carlos Amorim - coordenador do PPGE - UNICAMP)

Ethical Decision-Making: Cases in Organization and Leadership

Editor: Patricia A. Mitchell
Abstract:

This text provides a unique collection of case studies across a wide range of organizations (higher education, K-12 education, military, state and local government administration, non-profit institutions, and agency management, etc.). These cases examine ethical decision-making and organizational and leadership behavioral concepts that are practiced in these organizations. The cases cover topics facing our workforce today and ask the reader to solve the dilemma. Through a discussion of these cases, students apply decision making and organizational and leadership strategies to analyze each case and therefore gain a better understanding of how to effectively lead and manage within their organizations. This text challenges students to think critically and analytically. Students are encouraged to reflect on options a practitioner could use to solve the problem. All of the cases end with an open scenario and a set of questions, allowing students to offer a wide range of opinions and participate in reflective and robust discussions.

Exploring the Mathematical Education of Teachers Using TEDS-M Data

Editor: Maria Teresa Tatto
Editor: Michael Rodriguez
Editor: Wendy Smith
Editor: Mark Reckase
Editor: Kiril Bankov
Abstract:

This book uses the publicly available TEDS-M data to answer such questions as: How does teacher education contribute to the learning outcomes of future teachers? Are there programs that are more successful than others in helping teachers learn to teach mathematics? How does the local and national policy environment contribute to teacher education outcomes? It invites readers to explore these questions across a large number of international settings.  The importance of preparing future mathematics teachers has become a priority across many nations. Across the globe nations have allocated resources and expertise to this endeavour. Yet in spite of the importance accorded to teacher education not much is known about different approaches to preparing knowledgeable teachers and whether these approaches do in fact achieve their purpose. The Mathematics Teacher Education and Development Study (TEDS-M) is the first, and to date the only, cross-national study using scientific and representative samples to provide empirical data on the knowledge that future mathematics teachers of primary and secondary school acquire in their teacher education programs.  The study addresses the central importance of teacher knowledge in learning to teach mathematics by examining variation in the nature and influence of teacher education programs within and across countries.

Factories for Learning: Making Race, Class and Inequality in the Neoliberal Academy

Author: Christy Kulz
Abstract: Over half of England's secondary schools are now academies. While their impact on achievement has been debated, the social and cultural outcomes prompted by this neoliberal educational model has received less scrutiny. This book draws on original research based at Dreamfields Academy, a celebrated flagship secondary school in a large English city, to show how the accelerated marketization and centralization of education is reproducing raced, classed and gendered inequalities. The book also examines the complex stories underlying Dreamfields' glossy veneer of success and shows how students, teachers and parents navigate the everyday demands of Dreamfields' results-driven conveyor belt. Hopes and dreams are effectively harnessed and mobilized to enact insidious forms of social control, as education develops new sites and discourses of surveillance.

Failure Up Close: What Happens, Why It Happens, and What We Can Learn from It

Editor: Jay P. Greene
Editor: Michael Q. McShane
Abstract: For many reasons, failure in education reform is rarely admitted. Even though it is incredibly hard work to try and improve the enormous and diverse American education system, because there are political consequences of admitting that a particular effort did not live up to its promises and pressure from philanthropic funders to show success, unsuccessful efforts are often swept under the rug or papered over with public relations efforts that avoid wrestling with the tough realities of educational improvement. This doesn’t help anyone. As any educator will tell you, failure is an essential part of learning. Insofar as education reform needs to be a learning movement itself, it has to be able to admit where it has failed and learn from it. Failure Up-Close engages a select group of scholars from across the ideological spectrum to examine particular education reform efforts of recent years that have not succeeded and offer lessons for school and system improvement that can be learned from them. Rather than view failure as negative, this volume looks at failure as an opportunity to learn and grow. In fact, the editors endeavored to find authors that would analyze reforms for which they had some fundamental sympathy. The goal is not to bash particular efforts or castigate their supporters but rather to help those supporters understand how to do what they do better, and ultimately, do better for children.
