Providing a critical understanding of the political and social forces shaping educational politics in the United States, this concise text describes and analyzes how policy is made for American schools and its effect on all of our lives and thinking. Joel Spring argues that the politics of Education is driven by a complex interrelationship between politicians, private foundations and think tanks, teachers’ unions, special-interest groups, educational politicians, school administrators, boards of education, courts, and the knowledge industry. The text uses many current examples to illustrate conflicts over educational policies.
