Today, many public schools, especially rural and inner-city areas, are so fraught with violence, so impersonal, and so poorly funded that they drive students away rather than inspire them to learn. Most people do not realize that the school system they knew when they were growing up is now in the process of being supplanted with alternative approaches to education. Nor do they understand the grave consequences for their children who face the demise of America's one system of public education for all. Author Elaine Johnson examines the state of education in the twenty-first century using science, rather than business as a more reliable and positive guide for education. The application of scientific principles of interrelatedness, self-organization, and differentiation to leadership and teaching, transforms schools into places that improve school performance. Chapters describe practical approaches to teaching math, science, and foreign languages. The Dismantling of Public Education analyzes: The influence on education of the business model calling for growth, Competition, Measurable targets, Accountability. This book also discusses the effects on young people of immense high schools, charter schools, and statewide standardized achievement tests.

Der vorliegende Band ist aus dem dreijährigen Forschungsprojekt "Interreligiöse Umweltethik" des Instituts fur Kommunikationsforschung heraus entstanden, das vom Schweizerischen Nationalfonds finanziert wurde und im Rahmen des Schwerpunktprogramms Umwelt lief Das Buch setzt sich aus drei Teilen zusammen: Im ersten Teil wird der Zusammenhang zwischen Natur und Kultur reflektiert. Ausgehend von der Tatsache, dass Umweltforschung schon längst nicht mehr ausschliessliche Fragestellung oder gar Eigentum der Naturwissenschaften ist, werden Natur und Kultur als soziales System aufgefasst. Umwelttfagen, ihre Thematisierung oder Ignorierung sind Ausdruck gesellschaftlicher Kommunikation, bzw. der Art, wie eine Gesellschaft organisiert ist. Dabei wird versucht, Prinzipien einer (geisteswissenschaftlichen) Kulturökologie als Beitrag zur aktuellen Umwelt-und Ökologiediskussion zu skizzieren. Zentral im ersten Teil dieses Bandes ist die Frage nach einer "ökologischen" Kultur. Damit ist nicht eine Kultur gemeint, die an ihre natürliche Umwelt "angepasst" ist oder wird, sondern die Organisation gesellschaftlicher Kommunikation, die in sich genügend Komplexität, aber auch Flexibilität aufweist, um die Informationen, welche die Naturwissenschaften ständig liefern, politisch, wirtschaftlich, rechtlich usw. umzusetzen.
