Item description for Curriculum and Ideology: Irish Experiences, International Perspectives by Ciaran...
Through this fine collection of thoughtful analyses by international and Irish experts in education...a body of work that respects and celebrates Ireland's efforts to be more caring, democratic and creative in its educational goals than its English speaking neighbours, and to be less centralized and more prepared to consider multiple interests and influences in doing so...This splendid book provides an essential window into the complex world of educational change. Rigorous, thoughtful, yet always accessible, Curriculum and Ideology is surely a must-read.""-Andy Hargreaves, Boston College. ""This volume takes a `global' perspective, situating the Irish reforms in the context of a global reform movement. Sugrue and collaborators make a critical contribution by surfacing elements that shape Irish education in fundamental ways, but are seldom part of the dialogue. The assembled papers...make a valuable addition to both the Irish and international education reform communities.""-Milbrey McLaughlin, Stanford University
