              This book is about how our addiction to testing influences both society and ourselves as socially defined persons. The analysis focuses on tests of people, particularly tests in schools, intelligence tests, vocational interest tests, lie detection, integrity tests, and drug tests.... Diagnostic psychiatric tests and medical tests are included only tangentially. A good deal of the descriptive material will be familiar to readers from their personal experience as takers and/or givers of tests. But testing, as with much of ordinary life, has implications that we seldom pause to ponder and often do not even notice. My aim is to uncover in the everyday operation of testing a series of well-concealed and mostly unintended consequences that exercise far deeper and more pervasive influence in social life than is commonly recognized.This title is part of UC Press's Voices Revived program, which commemorates University of California Press's mission to seek out and cultivate the brightest minds and give them voice, reach, and impact.

              Critical Ethnography and Education: Theory, Method, and Social Justice
                

              Critical Ethnography and Education: Theory, Method, and Social Justice (Paperback)

              The important contribution of this international methodological and practical guide to doing critical ethnographic work in education settings is its original approach to addressing the theory/method interface in relation to current concerns of social justice and (in)equality in e...ducation, along with their ethical implications. It takes a broad view of education as including both educational institutions as well as community education and the learning that goes on in public spaces, families and other out-of-school contexts. Drawing throughout on existing critical ethnographic work as exemplars and including vignettes of the intersection of theory, method and educational practice(s), the book accomplishes two key aims: it provides an overarching thematic and historical overview of critical ethnography in education, and at the same time addresses contemporary issues of power and inequality, and their often complex intersectionality in education. The central premise is that connecting a theory-of-method and a method of theorizing that effectively interweaves social theory with and throughout the research process is essential to address the hard questions and challenges associated with key issues of social justice in education.

              Despite some achievements gained during the indigenous struggle for rights and recognition, many indigenous groups continue to fight against unjust social, political, environmental, and historical conditions. Ideas which engage with the lived experiences of communities themselves..., such as the human development and capability approach, are crucial if we are to understand the conditions in which the struggle for self-determination take place. Indigenous Peoples and the Capability Approach introduces readers to the human development and capability approach and explores how it might be used to help us to understand the values, needs, and aspirations of indigenous peoples. Split into three handy sections, the book explores the key concepts, methods and applications of the capability approach and indigenous perspectives to well-being and development. Using a range of examples and case studies from Maori, First Nations, Native American, Aboriginal, African, and Asian indigenous communities, the book provides a window into the lived experiences of some of the most marginalised and vulnerable groups in the world. The first book to bring indigenous perspectives into conversation with the capability approach, Indigenous Peoples and the Capability Approach will be essential reading for both students and policy makers with an interest in the well-being and development of indigenous communities.

              Traditions throughout the world and across history have tackled fundamental questions about the human condition. This one-of-a-kind guide shows how these different philosophies can be effectively studied together. Monika Kirloskar-Steinbach's and Leah Kalmanson's introduction mar...ks a break from conventional approaches. Instead of assuming philosophy has always operated with a single, easily identifiable conceptual framework across space and time, which we call-and have always called-philosophy, they attest to the plurality of concepts and methods adopted at different times and places. The book serves as a practical teaching guide to the theoretical and methodological diversification of philosophy as practiced in academia today. Complementing the Bloomsbury Introductions to World Philosophies series, it covers a variety of traditions featured in the book series, exploring how Anglo-American, Chinese, Indian, African, Islamic and Maori thinkers have all addressed fundamental questions such as: - How do we understand ourselves and our relations to others? - How do we understand our world? - How do we seek knowledge, share knowledge, and, importantly, intervene in the norms of received knowledge when needed? Featuring teaching notes, discussion questions, and a list of further reading, this is a book packed with the background, guidance, and tools required to teach different philosophies. Through it we come to see why making room for different conceptual frameworks improves our understanding of ourselves and the worlds we live in.
