Isaac Leon Kandel (1881-1965) was a major figure in educational philosophy and comparative education in the twentieth century. As a professor of education at Columbia University's Teachers College, Kandel almost single-handedly developed the field of comparative education, and was an early critic of Progressive educational philosophy. As the definitive biography of one of the twentieth century's most brilliant writers on education, this book presents Kandel as a democratic traditionalist who tirelessly advocated the ideal of liberal education for all. This book tells the story of Kandel's life and the many obstacles that he faced because of his faith and political views. The philosophy of democratic schooling that Kandel embodies is crucial to the reconstruction of American education today. qPeerless Educator qwill be of interest not only to scholars of education, but also to practitioners who want to improve education in the twenty-first century.All of the work of his doctoral students, naturally enough, related to the field of comparative education. ... a Consideration of the Secondary Education of Girls in Japan, aquot; (Ph.D. diss., Teachers College, Columbia University, 1933); Amir Boktor, anbsp;...
