Present and Past

Essays for Teachers in the History of Education


Clinton Allison and Clinton Allison

Present and Past provides a critical analysis of major public school issues. The narrative is organized around problems created in the public schools by a lack of social justice in the broader society. Rather than a chronological treatment of educational history, historical incidents and case studies are used to provide perspectives on crucial issues. The author's point of view is explicit, but throughout the text, he invites challenges to his interpretation by his readers.
