Synopsis

In this timely interdisciplinary volume, William Watkins has brought together leading scholars and activists to address some of the most urgent issues facing public education. What is underneath and behind the language of choice, efficiency, and improvement in current neoliberal discourse? How will urban and poor populations be affected? Will privatization lead to increased stratification in our schools? How can public education not only be saved but re-imagined? In accessible language, renowned contributors explore and critique corporate school reform to both inform and serve as an organizing tool for teachers, parents, students, and citizens committed to genuine public education.



Book Features:







A comprehensive critique of how corporate power is disrupting universal public education.

An illumination of how corporate school reform threatens unions, racial progress, and democracy.

An illustration of how private wealth forges public policy.

A case study of the public school system in New Orleans.
