Curriculum Windows Redux: What Curriculum Theorists Can Teach Us about Schools and Society Today is an effort by students of curriculum studies, along with their professor, to interpret and understand curriculum texts and theorists in contemporary terms.

The authors explore how key books/authors from the curriculum field illuminate new possibilities forward for us as scholar educators today: How might the theories, practices, and ideas wrapped up in these curriculum texts still resonate with us, allow us to see backward in time and forward in time – all at the same time? How might these figurative windows of insight, thought, ideas, fantasy, and fancy make us think differently about curriculum, teaching, learning, students, education, leadership, and schools? Further, how might they help us see more clearly, even perhaps put us on a path to correct the mistakes and missteps of intervening decades and of today?

The authors complete the Curriculum Windows series with this 7th book, Redux, providing a scholarly view of 33 books that should have been treated in the first 6 books based on the decades of the 1950s-2000s. The book's Foreword is by renowned curriculum theorist William H. Schubert.
