Angela F. Foshay Collection
Dr. Angela F. Foshay is professor Emeritus at Teachers College, Columbia University. He is known for his attempts at making educators, especially those in secondary education, see their ultimate objective as teaching meaning and understanding.
Foshay received his B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1934 and his Ed.D. from Teachers College in 1949. From 1949 to 1952, Foshay joined the faculty ranks of Teachers College, first as Assistant and then as Associate Professor of Education. He left the College for five years to take the post of Professor of Education and Director of the Bureau of Educational Research, at Ohio State University, in Columbus.
He returned to TC in 1957 to become the Executive Officer of the Horace Mann-Lincoln Institute of Experimentation and Associate Dean for Research and Field Services. As the Executive Officer, Foshay headed a school that was an integral part of Teachers College and associated with a group of public schools. Its aim was to test and put into practice the results of experimentation and represent "a cross section of the population of a typical American community."
In the late 1960s, Professor Foshay was a member of a team of five American researchers involved in a massive international study of secondary school achievement in mathematics. The study was sponsored by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO
