This new edition brings McLaren's popular, classic textbook into a new era of Common Core Standards and online education. The book is rewned for its clear, provocative classroom narratives and its coverage of political, ecomic, and social factors that are undervalued in other educational textbooks. An international committee of experts ranked Life in Schools among the top twelve education books in the world.
Peter McLaren is world-renowned in the fields of education and social justice. He is Professor of Urban Schooling at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
