Teaching Toward Democracy examines the contested space of schooling and school reform with a focus on the unique challenges and opportunities that teaching in a democratic society provides. Chapters are written in the spirit of notes, conversations and letters the nationally recognized team of authors wish they received in their journeys into teaching. Building on the conversational and accessible approach, this revised edition includes additional dialogues amongst the authors to further explore how they have individually and collectively reflected on the qualities of mind that teachers explore and work to develop as they become more effective educators. Inspiring and uplifting, Teaching Toward Democracy adds to the repertoire of skills teachers can access in their classrooms and encourages the confidence to locate themselves within the noble tradition of teaching as democratic work.

Teacher accountability has been a major strategy for “fixing” education for the last 2 decades. In this book, Cochran-Smith and her research team argue that it is time for teacher educators to reclaim accountability by adopting a new approach that features intelligent professional responsibility, challenges the structures and processes that reproduce inequity, and sustains multi-layered collaboration with diverse communities. The authors analyze and critique major accountability initiatives, including Department of Education regulations, CAEP accreditation procedures, NCTQ teacher preparation reviews, and edTPA, and expose the lack of evidence behind these policies, as well as the negative impact they are having on teacher education. However, the book does not conclude that accountability is the wrong direction for the next generation of teacher education. Instead, the authors offer a clear and achievable vision of accountability for teacher education based on a commitment to equity and democracy. “This book should be at the center of teacher education conversations everywhere.” —Gloria Ladson-Billings, professor emerita, University of Wisconsin-Madison “This is one of the most brilliant books in education, period.” —Kevin Kumashiro, education consultant “In these frightening days of uncertainty, chaos, and conflict, this timely volume dares to call for hope and collective action.” —A. Lin Goodwin, Teachers College, Columbia University “This very important book exposes the lack of evidence supporting dominant accountability policies in teacher education. It is a must-read for teacher educators and policymakers.” —Ken Zeichner, University of Washington

This Reader examines the ways in which learning is organized in a diverse range of lifelong learning environments. If we are to harness the full potential of this learning, the structures of organizations and providers will have to change. The book also examines the shift away from the perception of formal institutions as the sole providers of education and the increasing recognition of the learning opportunities which exist outside the walls of institutions. The book looks at what types of environment promote lifelong learning, how they can be organised to support meaningful learning and what the implications are for managers. Supporting Lifelong Learning Volume II: Organising Learning also looks at the implications of wider concepts of the learning city, learning region and the learning society in a fresh and accessible text with a uniquely international dimension.

Martin’s "theory of education as encounter" places culture alongside the individual at the heart of the educational process, thus responding to the call John Dewey made over a century ago for an enlarged outlook on education.
