  • Written by experts, Gives a modern approach, Comprehensive in Scope
Mother-Scholar presents another way of knowing. The book illuminates the narratives of prominent mother-scholars in the discipline of education who are determined to (re)imagine a different educational space not only for their own children, but for all children. Today’s schools are male-centered institutions in which standardized testing, rational mind, and emotionless space prevent children from realizing their full potential as creative, intelligent and soulful beings. Mother-scholars in the discipline of education assert that when motherhood and intellect confront and inform each other, a new thinking emerges to capture the possibility of humanizing education beyond the private relationships between mothers and children.
