Description

For undergraduate or graduate courses that study the relationship between social context and educational issues.

This thought-provoking text examines education as a cultural phenomenon and explores the implications of this perspective on schooling, multicultural education, educational development, and the process of teaching and learning. The authors combine the concepts of anthropology, education, schooling, teaching, and learning into an insightful introduction to the study of the cultural basis of education.
