Les Etablissements scolaires et la recherche en education: problèmes méthodologiques et épistémologiques (Eds.) Hugon & Viaud

Emilie Souyri


Marie-Anne Hugon and Marie-Laure Viaud’s Les Etablissements scolaires et la recherche en éducation, problèmes méthodologiques et épistémologiques is a welcome addition to the epistemological and methodological discussion on alternative pedagogies in France. The approach is both theoretical and more pragmatic with a first part hinging on broader epistemological and methodological issues while the second part is dedicated to the specifics of evaluation. It gives interesting insights into the difficulty of studying French alternative schools that tend to shy away from researchers for many reasons
