Library of Education

The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Westphalia Press’s Library of Education has many historical works illustrating the development of schooling and universities. How schools and colleges have evolved and about the struggles as subject areas joining the pantheon of learning is often overlooked in curriculum and policy studies. Students and teachers are unaware, as are administrators, of how course topics have been created, changed, and even died. The result is a resistance to necessary evolution, based on the idea that “things have always been that way.” By illustrating the changes, these works strengthen the case for re-examination of how education is meeting current challenges. These titles are, among other things, friends to the administrator who wishes to justify policy innovation.
 

教育图书馆

威斯特伐利亚出版社(Westphalia Press)的教育图书馆(Library of Education)有许多描述学校教育和大学发展的历史著作。在课程和政策研究中,学校和学院的发展史以及作为学科领域加入学习荟萃的奋斗过程往往被忽视。学生、教师以及管理员都不知道课程主题是如何创建、更改甚至消亡的。结果则出现了对必要发展的抵制,后者基于“事情向来如此”的观点。通过阐明这些变革,这些著作加强了对“教育如何应对当前挑战”的重新审视。除了其他事物外,这些著作也是那些希望维护政策创新的管理者的益友。
