The schoolhome : rethinking schools for changing families by Jane Roland Martin( Book )

A century ago, John Dewey remarked that when home changes radically, school must change as well. With home, family, and gender roles dramatically altered in recent years, we are faced with a difficult problem: in the lives of more and more American children, no one is home. The Schoolhome proposes a solution. Drawing selectively from reform movements of the past and relating them to the unique needs of today's parents and children, Jane Martin presents a philosophy of education that is responsive to America's changed and changing realities. As more and more parents enter the workforce, the historic role of the domestic sphere in the education and development of children is drastically reduced. Consequently, Martin advocates removing the barriers between the school and the home--making school a metaphorical "home," a safe and nuturant environment that provides children with the experience of affection and connection otherwise missing or inconsistent in their lives. In this proposition, the traditional schoolhouse where children are drilled in the three Rs is transformed into a "schoolhome" where learning is animated by an ethic of social awareness. At a time when many school reformers are calling for a return to basics and lobbying for skills education and quick-fix initiatives, Martin urges us to reconsider the distinctive legacies of Dewey and Montessori and to conceive of a school that integrates the values of the home with those of social responsibility. With cultural diversity and gender equality among its explicit goals, the schoolhome expands upon Dewey's edict to educate the "whole child," seeking instead to educate all children in the culture's whole heritage. Martin eloquently challenges reformers to reclaim the founding fathers' vision of the nation as a domestic realm, and to imagine a learning environment whose curriculum and classroom practice reflect not merely an economic but a moral investment in the future of our children. More than a summons to action, this remarkable book is a call to rethink the assumptions we bring to the educational enterprise, and so, to act wisely

Education reconfigured : culture, encounter, and change by Jane Roland Martin( Book )
13 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 322 libraries worldwide
As philosophers throughout the ages have asked: What is justice? What is truth? What is art? What is law? In Education Reconfigured, the internationally acclaimed philosopher of education, Jane Roland Martin, now asks: What is education? In answer, she puts forward a unified theory that casts education in a brand new light. Martin's "theory of education as encounter" places culture alongside the individual at the heart of the educational process, thus responding to the call John Dewey made over a century ago for an enlarged outlook on education. Look through her theory's lens and you can see that education takes place not only in school but at home, on the street, in the mall--everywhere and all the time. Look through that lens and you can see that education does not always spell improvement; rather, it can be for the better or the worse. Indeed, you can see that education is inevitably a maker and shaper of both individuals and cultures. Above all, Martin's new educational paradigm reveals that education is too important to be left solely to the professionals; that it is one of the great forces in human society and, as such, deserves the attention and demands the vigilance of every thoughtful person
Choice, chance, and curriculum by Jane Roland Martin( Book )
1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 110 libraries worldwide
This paper examines the argument that increased freedom of choice for students will rid education of undesirable coercion, compulsion, and conformity. Throughout her discussion, the author emphasizes that merely allowing a child to choose does not guarantee his capacity to choose. The capacity to choose presupposes not only the existence of alternatives but the recognition of alternatives, the author argues, and a rational choice must be based on knowledge or belief about the consequences of the available options. Where these conditions are not met, decisions must be made arbitrarily; chance prevails rather than choice. Although permitting students to decide educational questions by chance may eliminate compulsion and coercion from education, conformity is likely to flourish. To eliminate conformity, educational decisions must truly be made by choice. And in order to accomplish this, the author asserts, institution of the right to choose must be accompanied by the capacity to choose. (Jg)

2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Thayer-Bacon argues that factors such as race, gender, and social status have direct bearing on philosophical inquiry: by abstracting theorists from their personal and social contexts, the absolutism of traditional critical thinking philosophies come into question.
