Reviews

"Knowledge and the Future of the Curriculum, packs in a collection of 'powerful' analyses from seminal scholars working in diverse areas of research and international contexts, and who share a common vision for what a future-oriented curriculum must look like if it is to be both socially just and truly progressive ... The book will be of particular interest to graduate schools of education seeking rigorous programs of study, especially considering the rich theoretical framework presented and the application of the framework to various debates occurring in the field as well as to various research programs." - International Studies in Sociology of Education
