Can give you some idea of the vision you are trying to transmit amidst all those examination results - Management in Education

The powerful ideas ... in the First Edition have gained ... urgency from the realities of the political policies for education which the intervening years have witnessed in both the USA and the UK. ..... the books main theme - the narrowness of the concept of education encapsulated in those policies - gains added force from the growing predominance of technicist approaches to curriculum planning - Professor A V Kelly, Goldsmiths College, University of London

Cognition and Curriculum became a seminal book which was essential reading for students of education over the last decade. Now, as the back-to-basics curriculum and standardized modes of evaluation - whose very foundations Elliot W Eisner was questioning a decade ago - are again finding favour with politicians, Eisner has revised his classic work. The result is Cognition and Curriculum Reconsidered, a substantially revised edition that adds two new chapters, including a critique of the reform efforts of the intervening years.
