Critical Issues in Education

This book came in a timely manner and was in great condition. I would recommend using this seller.

Great buy

This book contains a wealth of information concerning the relevant issues of today's educational system. It presents different perspectives and allows the reader to develop their own idea on a particular subject. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to get a better grasp on some of the current organizational trends and issues in educational leadership and human services.

Great for any educator

Easy to read, concise, and thorough. A great resource for any educator at any level.

Subjective Evaluation

The arguments are, as stated in 1st review, slanted. They are supposed to be! The book uses a pro vs. con argument format and tries not to judge. Summary is limited to a mild discussion of the importance of the issue. I was required to use it in an education course and actually kept the book. I was looking for an updated version when I stumbled here, although in education as in all things it seems that the more things change the more they stay the same. I think that anyone, and I mean anyone, who intends to use public media to deliver opinions of any sort on education should be required to read the book.


Excellent multi perspective. Many experienced educational writers and sources consulted in this writing. Lots of supporting facts make it an excellent resource for teachers and administrators.
