MORGANTOWN, WV -

Sam F. Stack Jr., a professor in West Virginia University's College of Eduation and Human Services, has been awarded the latest American Educational Studies Association Critics Choice Book Award for his work "Teachers, Leaders, and Schools: Essays by John Dewey." 

Stack co-authored the book with Douglas J. Simpson, a professor at the Texas Tech University College of Education. Their work is a selection of essays written by the noted 20th century philosopher whose influence is still seen in education today.

Dewey was known for undertaking educational issues and how they prepare, or fail to prepare, students to participate in a democratic society. By reviving his essays, Stack and Simpson seek to renew dialogue on the purpose of American education.

Established in 1968, the American Educational Studies Association is an international society. Most members are college and university professors focused on teaching and researching the foundations of education.
