Theory and educational research : toward critical social explanation

Author: Jean Anyon
Publisher: New York : Routledge, 2009.
Series: Critical youth studies.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 1st edView all editions and formats
Summary:
Throughout US history, education policies, practices and politics have been described and tested to yield empirical data, often with little attempt to place findings in a larger theoretical infrastructure. This collection fills that void by taking the view that neither research nor theory alone is up to the task of social explanation.
