Paul Diederich worked in five new organizations dedicated to transforming American schools: the Ohio State University lab school, the Eight Year Study, a Harvard institute to revamp English language instruction, the University of Chicago's Board of Examiners, and the Educational Testing Service. Throughout his career he wrote critiques of American high schools and set forth many proposals to make them more flexible without sacrificing academic excellence. This anthology resurrects 14 Diederich essays, eight of them never before published. The scope ranges from visions of social justice to the details of the daily schedule. Like his heroes Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson, he combined a passion for utopian speculation with a fascination for practical problems, a combination that is rare in the world of school reform today.

This book is titled Forgotten Heroes of American Education because it contains representative writings by significant educators who challenged mainstream thinking. The editors of this volume believe that the work of these thoughtful and important educators deserves to be remembered. They have been forgotten because in the great pedagogical battles of the twentieth century, they lost. Time and again, they battled with their Progressivist colleagues over the purpose and goals of elementary and secondary education. Because they lost the arguments, their role as leaders and thinkers was almost completely ignored by historians of education, who identified with the winners. We think this was a grand mistake. To honor the legacy of these eight educators, we have written this book and entitled it Forgotten Heroes of American Education.

Clinical Teacher Education focuses on how to build a schooluniversity partnership network for clinical teacher education in urban school systems serving culturally and linguistically diverse populations. The labor intensive nature of professional development school work has resulted in research institutions being slow to fully adopt a clinical teacher education Professional Development School (PDS) network approach across the entirety of their teacher preparation programs. Faculty have often been hesitant to commit to such models in light of the demands of institutional expectations of publish or perish. In this book, faculty, researchers, and administrators from academia and from public schools involved in a clinical teacher education PDS network discuss their commitment to collaborative clinical teacher preparation and development, and to inquiry in PDS initiatives in urban schools. Clinical Teacher Education serves as an indepth analysis of the strengths and challenges of establishing schooluniversity networks in metropolitan environments. Many experienced and noteworthy authors contributed to Clinical Teacher Education. The authors hold various administrative and faculty positions in both university and public school settings. In addition to editors Chara Bohan and Joyce Many, chapter authors include, Mary Ariail, Gwen Benson, Lin Black, Donna Breault, William Curlette, Kezia McNeal Curry, Julie Dangel, Mary Deming, Caitline Dooley, Joe Feinberg, Teresa Fisher, Lou Matthews, August Ogletree, Susan Ogletree, Laura Smith, Susan Swars, Dee Taylor and Brian Williams.

Teaching for Dissent looks at the implications of new forms of dissent for educational practice. The reappearance of dissent in political meetings and street protests opens new possibilities for improved democratic life and citizen participation. This book argues that this possibility will not be fulfilled if schools do not cultivate the skills necessary for our citizens to engage in political dissent. The authors look at how practices in schools, such as the testing regime and the 'hidden curriculum', suppress students' ability to voice ideas that stand in opposition to the status quo. Teaching for Dissent calls for a realignment of the curriculum and the practices of schooling with a guiding vision of democratic participation.
