Throughout the world, members of the education research community have
long decried the lack of attention to research and scholarship that is evident in most
education policies promulgated by state, provincial, and national legislatures. The
Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 2001 (ESEA 2001), which was
recently signed into law in the United States, is an interesting case to consider in
Toward an R&D Program in Reading Comprehension. "One of the most vexing problems facing middle and secondary school teachers today is that many students come into their classrooms without the requisite knowledge, skills, or disposition to read and comprehend the materials placed before them. In an effort to inform the U.S.

Transcriber's Note: I have tried to make this the most accurate text possible but I am sure that there are still mistakes. I would like to dedicate this etext to my mother who was a elementary school teacher for more years than I can remember. Thanks. David Reed

A humanist educational model can be defined as a system in which human
values, dignity, reason and fulfilment in harmony with nature predominates. By
contrast, the present system is based on utilitarian values to transform
knowledge into commodities. Within this context we see the dehumanization of
our children, young people and students.
I assume that the function of higher education is to reify ruling class values
into the social consciousness of students, and to train students to serve the
The last decade has seen significant reform in the South African mathematics curriculum and the mathematics education research community has also grown markedly. Drawing on the proceedings from nearly a decade of the South African Association for Research in Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (SAARMSTE) conferences, this book reflects on the theoretical and ideological work that has contributed to the growth of mathematics education research in South Africa.
In calling this little book 'The Curse of Education,' I trust that I shall not be misunderstood to disparage culture. The term 'education' is used, for want of a better word, to express the conventional mode of teaching and bringing up children, and of educating youth in this and other civilized countries. It is with education systems, with the universal method of cramming the mind with facts, and particularly with the manufacture of uniformity and mediocrity by subjecting every individual to a common process, regardless of his natural bent, that I have chiefly to find fault. ...
In recent years, the National Science Foundation (NSF) has been work
ing to develop closer links between the funding of scientific research
and increasing public understanding of science. Its efforts to improve
public understanding of science have focused on schools, colleges, and universities
but have included support for museums, aquariums, and other
programs. Those efforts are designed to prepare future scientists and educators,
as well as to inform the public about how science affects society....
In 1996, the National Research Council, the working
arm of the National Academy of Sciences and its sister
institutions (henceforth, the National Academies), established
a committee composed of educators, researchers,
and policy experts to examine whether it might be
feasible to mount a strategic program of education research that
could make a strong contribution to improving education in the
United States. Their answer, somewhat to the surprise of the
committee members, turned out to be a unanimous and enthusiastic
The present volume, as well as the companion volume of Readings, arose out of a practical situation.
Twenty-two years ago, on entering Stanford University as a Professor of Education and being given the history of the subject to teach, I found it necessary, almost from the first, to begin the construction of a
Syllabus of Lectures which would permit of my teaching the subject more as a phase of the history of the rise
and progress of our Western civilization than would any existing text. Through such a study it is possible to
give, better than by any other means, that vision of world...
Technology Education has gone through a lot of changes in the past decades. It has
developed from a craft oriented school subject to a learning area in which the
meaning of technology as an important part of our contemporary culture is
explored, both by the learning of theoretical concepts and through practical
activities. This development has been accompanied by educational research. The
output of research studies is published mostly as articles in scholarly Technology
Education and Science Education journals. There is a need, however, for more than
and Kay Stables is one of those booksthat need no recommendation for
those who know the field. Their workis internationally known for its
quality. Their names are the first to pop up when one organises a conference
on technology education and seeks for keynote presenters in a conference
section on assessment. For people in technology education the combination
of Kimbell and Stables is almost synonymous with Goldsmiths College. Any
College can hardly wish itself betterambassadors to establish a reputation
for the institute than these two colleagues.
(BQ) Part 2 book "Teaching anatomy - A practical guide" presents the following contents: In the gross anatomy laboratory, teaching tools, assessment, curriculum design, teaching anatomy to students in different academic programs, educational research.
Most social science students are required to take at least one course in
research methods. Why is such a course required in nearly every
programme? It’s because research methods are the tools we use to juxtapose
theories with data. We hope theories offer insights into the world, but we
have to check the theories against data to ensure that they really do
describe the world.
Research purpose: The thesis clarifies fundamental theoretical matters and the real situation of the education and training to the development of hight-quality human resources; recommends a number of directions and solutions to bring into full play the role of education and training in the development of hight-quality human resources in Vietnam at present.
The term distance learning has different meanings to different people and populations.
By presenting international perspectives of distance learning, this book embraces all
those meanings and populations without giving preference to any. In todayʹs global
world where distance providers can address local learning needs, it is important for
distance learning practitioners and researchers as well as higher education
administrators and faculty to have a broad view of how distance learning is
conceptualized, planned and delivered....
