"Philosophy of Education: An Anthology is a major contribution to philosophy of education. There are now quite a few large volumes on the subject. All have their virtues, but none of them lend themselves easily to introductory and mid-level courses in philosophy of education. This new anthology, edited with wisdom, judgment and deep knowledge of the field by Randall Curren, is perfect for this purpose. In virtue of its excellent content, range, accessibility, and flexibility, it will quickly become the standard anthology for the field." Harvey Siegel, University of Miami
