This book examines the ways in which educational institutions such as media and schools shape Western views of Islam. The nature of these constructions tells readers as much, if not more, about Western self-images as they do about Islam. Quickly emerging is a Western perspective on the "other." Economic colonialism, the oil business, and direct interference in governments in a number of Muslim nations and the way this history is related in the formal structure of schools and the informal structure of the media, are central debates in this book of fascinating and important essays.

Author and veteran teacher Derek Stolp has come to the conclusion that learning mathematics is of no real consequence for the vast majority of our children. This stance flies in the face of the conventional wisdom held among political leaders, business people, teachers, and parents that mathematics is an essential subject for all children to study well into their high school years. In Mathematics Miseducation, Stolp argues that mathematics, as currently taught, does not justify inclusion in the curriculum and he suggests practical changes that can be implemented within a traditional school environment to resuscitate mathematics education. In this book, the author demonstrates that our beliefs about what children need and what motivates them to learn promote practices that are counterproductive, and that these practices ultimately corrupt students' own healthy motivations. Stolp contends that there is too much emphasis upon academics in our schools, and that other important dimensions of education, such as the social, emotional, and moral development of our children, are ignored. Includes: ·Progressive and practical alternatives to the traditional methods of teaching ·Research and examples citing ways of bringing the discipline to life In seamlessly weaving theory and practice, Derek Stolp provides a narrative that is accessible to any adult concerned about what our children are learning in mathematics.

2018 DIGITAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST FOR BEST SOCIAL IMPACT BOOK The student-athlete's life: practice, gym, weight room, film review, repeat. Simply put, sports come first. Academics is a distant second. As the revenues generated by big-time college sports continue to skyrocket, virtually all of the debate involves whether (and how much) student-athletes should be paid for play. Kenneth L. Shropshire and Collin D. Williams, Jr., argue that “student” has to come first in student-athlete: the focus should be on prioritizing a meaningful education. In The Miseducation of the Student Athlete: How to Fix College Sports, Shropshire and Williams draw on new research to reveal that it has become increasingly difficult for college athletes to balance school and sports, much less a social life, leading to serious economic, professional, and emotional consequences for young people. Given that fewer than 2% of all college men’s basketball and football players will play at the professional level, the other 98% of student-athletes must be prepared to find and perform well in jobs outside of their respective field of play. In this bold call to action, Shropshire and Williams explain how we got here and what can be done about it. They lay out The Student-Athlete Manifesto, a roadmap to increase the likelihood that student-athletes can succeed both on and off the field. They also offer a Meaningful Degree Model, which ensures education pays for everyone, along with stories of success that show it is possible to be both a student and an athlete. A critical read for student-athletes, sports leadership, policy makers, and anyone who loves college sports, The Miseducation of the Student Athlete has the potential to disrupt college sport and create lasting change.

A History of Ignorance-Making in America and Abroad

Ignorance, or the study of ignorance, is having a moment. Ignorance plays a powerful role in shaping public opinion, channeling our politics, and even directing scholarly research. The first collection of essays to grapple with the historical interplay between education and ignorance, Miseducation finds ignorance—and its social production through naïveté, passivity, and active agency—at the center of many pivotal historical developments. Ignorance allowed Americans to maintain the institution of slavery, Nazis to promote ideas of race that fomented genocide in the 1930s, and tobacco companies to downplay the dangers of cigarettes. Today, ignorance enables some to deny the fossil record and others to ignore climate science. A. J. Angulo brings together seventeen experts from across the scholarly spectrum to explore how intentional ignorance seeps into formal education. Each chapter identifies education as a critical site for advancing our still-limited understanding of what exactly ignorance is, where it comes from, and how it is diffused, maintained, and regulated in society. Miseducation also challenges the notion that schools are, ideally, unimpeachable sites of knowledge production, access, and equity. By investigating how laws, myths, national aspirations, and global relations have recast and, at times, distorted the key purposes of education, this pathbreaking book sheds light on the role of ignorance in shaping ideas, public opinion, and policy.
