Beschreibung

This far reaching text, explores the relations between global wealth and poverty, American and European elites and Third World indigenous societies, and the role schools play in the destruction of cultures. It exams how the dark underside of capitalism, called neoliberalism, is using schools to destroy an American generation and why the No Child Left Behind Act is replacing the democracy of Roosevelt and Dewey with Victorian classism.

Pressestimmen

Segall maintains that the upper class "neoliberals" of America are working to satisfy their craving for wealth by establishing imperialist control of developing countries through globalization and creating a subservient and docile working class in America. Reference and Research Book News This work provides the average reader a look into the economic and political forces driving global education reform. Segall relates through situational narrative the dynamics of neoliberal and neconservative policy initiatives and how that political allience is ultimately threatening our social fabric. -- D. Kunneman, Ponca City, Oklahoma William Segall's brilliant analysis of neoliberal theories of education reform, including high-stakes testing, vouchers, tax credits, and corporate domination of public education, is chilling. This multidisciplinary, cross-cultural exploration of forces at work today sounds an alarm that should be of concern to teachers, teacher educators, and all who value public education. The work is highly informative, thoughtful, serious, and well-researched. -- Dale and Bonnie Johnson
