From the Paper:"The Educational Imagination
The Educational Imagination, On the Design and Evaluation of School Programs, Third Edition by Elliot W. Eisner (1994) begins with the point that American students fail to meet minimal standards of academic achievement; this leads to the search for understanding education, learning, teaching, and schools. The author states that motivation for educational reform at the turn of the century and today's motivations come from the same source which is a discontent with existing practices and a desire for solutions (pp. 1, 12). Next the author discusses the concept of curriculum, which is what schools teach; for some this includes not only courses but everything the child experiences in school. However defined, curriculum must occur (pp. 25-32)."
