New or Used: $65.05
In recent years, challenges to what gets read, taught and learned in public schools have arisen. In this provocative collection, the editors present a major case study of a school district tackling the issue of academic freedom, as well as first-hand accounts by teachers and administrators who have directly dealt with censorship issues. Along with the contributors, they offer educators practical strategies to consider when censorship issues arise in their districts and classrooms and food for thought regarding what is involved when there are fundamental clashes of value over the nature of schooling and the purposes of education in a community.

Reviews

"At last, a book which gives us the voices of front line dues payers, the teachers who have fought the exhausting, heroic struggles for academic freedom in their classrooms. At the same time, the book takes us on a rare, up-close excursion into the heartland of the complicated forces pushing at the K-12 classroom door at the turn of the century." - Miles A. Myers, Executive Director of EDschool.com and former Executive Director, National Council of Teachers of English; "Not since the 1950's attack on educators during the McCarthy era have there been such constraints on the rights of teachers at every level to choose materials and develop curriculum as there are today. The voices in this research narrative illuminate opportunities for professional educators to become articulate about censorship issues and ways to protect academic freedom: the right to teach and the right to learn in a democracy." - Yetta M. Goodman, Regents Professor of Education, University of Arizona
