Fifty Modern Thinkers on Education: From Piaget to the Present Day

By Joy A. Palmer | Go to book overview

Revealing. Also political and panoramic…a humanistic document for our positivistic educational times'. Greene declares earnestly to 'have read this book with enjoyment and considerable excitement'. Freire simply affirms that 'as Official Knowledge demonstrates, Michael Apple is among the most distinguished scholars in the world who are involved in this struggle to build a critical and democratic education'.


Notes

My grateful appreciation to Dr Xaé Reyes (University of Connecticut at Storrs) and Mr Neill Edwards for their generous gifts, to this author, of time and effort.
