The Beat of a Different Drummer: Essays on Educational Renewal in Honor of John I. Goodlad is a collection of essays by friends, colleagues, and scholars who have been profoundly influenced by Goodlad's seminal thinking and half century of research and scholarship on educational change and school improvement. With diversity in styles and topics, these writers contribute to this festschrift by focusing on one or more key ideas in Goodlad's work, while extending and complementing them in the context of their own research and scholarship. Although the primary purpose of this volume is to celebrate the work of one of America's preeminent educators, readers will find a series of provocative essays that will help to keep alive the essential conversation about the problems of, and hopes for, educational renewal in our democratic society.
