Education theory

Education theory is the theory or the philosophy of the purpose, application and interpretation of education and learning. Its history begins with classical Greek educationalists and rhetoric and includes, since the 18th century, pedagogy and andragogy. In the 20th century, "theory" has become an umbrella term for a variety of scholarly approaches to teaching, assessment and education law, most of which are informed by various strands of educational philosophy.
