Summary

Culture and Pedagogy compares primary and secondary elementary schooling in England, France, India, Russia, and the United States. It reveals how teaching, learning, and pedagogic discourse are shaped not just by the decisions of the teacher but also by school values and organization, by local pressures, national policy, and the balance of political control, by the tensions and ambiguities of the democratic ideal, and by culture and history.

In 2002 Culture and Pedagogy won the Outstanding Book Award of the American Educational Research Association.
