- "Navigating the Common Good in Teacher Education Policy examines the changing relationships between the State and the common (or public) good. Using teacher education policy as the frame of analysis, the authors examine history, cultural context, and lived experiences in 12 countries and the European Union in order to explicate which notions of justice, social inclusion and exclusion, and citizenship emerge. By situating teacher education policy within a larger philosophical framework regarding the relationship between the state and conceptions of the "common good," this book analyzes the ideological and political desires of the state--how the state understands the common good, the future of national identity, and to what end schooling is imagined"--Contents: Imagining the good teacher: the nation, teaching, and the common good / Nikola Hobbel -- Teacher education policies in the United States: tensions between local and national actors for control of the common good / Barbara L.
