Series Editor: Joel Spring

The series welcomes volumes with multicultural perspectives, diverse interpretations, and a range of political points of view from conservative to critical.

Local, state, national, and international educational systems

Elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities

Public institutions of education such as museums, libraries, and foundations

Computer systems and software as instruments of public education

The popular media as forms of public education

Content areas within the academic study of education, such as curriculum and instruction, psychology, and educational technology
