About the Author

William F. Pinar is Professor and Canada Research Chair at the University of British Columbia. In 2015 he was awarded the Ted Aoki Award for distinguished service by the Canadian Association for Curriculum Studies. He is the former President of the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies.


A curriculum specialist, Pinar maintains the primacy of the curriculum and its obligation to question what knowledge is worthy of being taught; judging from his study of Grant, it would be less of the STEM subjects and more of theology, philosophy, and art. Nowhere is there an argument to be found in favour of balance and an engagement with rapidly developing technologies for which youth must be prepared-and, yes, to earn a living as well as to contemplate in their cubicles and to wish that their days might be "[b]ound each to each by natural piety." We leave William sitting on the rock, renouncing the idols of the marketplace and academy.

-- Angelika Maeser Lemieux
