Description

In more than forty books on subjects ranging from social justice to mathematics, morality to parenthood, Herb Kohl has earned a place as one of our foremost "educators who write." With Marian Wright Edelman, Mike Rose, Lisa Delpit, and Vivian Paley among his fans, Kohl is "one of only a handful of writers," as William Ayers says in his introduction, "to have had a serious impact on the practice of education over the past four decades." Now, for the first time, readers can find collected in one place key essays and excerpts spanning the whole of Kohl's career, including practical as well as theoretical writings. Selections come from Kohl's classic 36 Children, his National Book Award-winning The View from the Oak (co-authored with his wife Judy), and all his best known and beloved books. The Herb Kohl Reader is destined to become a major new resource for old fans and a new generation of teachers and parents.
