Shaping Education Policy is a comprehensive overview of education politics and policy during the most turbulent and rapidly changing period in American history. Respected scholars review the history of education policy to explain the political powers and processes that shape education today. Chapters cover major themes that have influenced education, including the civil rights movement, federal involvement, the accountability movement, family choice, and development of nationalization and globalization. Sponsored by the Politics of Education Association, this edited collection examines the tumultuous shifts in education policy over the last six decades and projects the likely future of public education. This book is a necessary resource for understanding the evolution, current status, and possibilities of educational policy and politics.

"Why has a once-dynamic educational system turned stagnant, or worse? Have school systems become overly centralized, professionalized, legalized and bureaucratized? Did the school reforms of the past half century have consequences their advocates never anticipated? Answers to such questions and more are explored in this superb collection of essays."
-- From the Foreword by Paul Peterson, Henry Lee Shattuck Professor of Government and Director of the Program on Education Policy and Governance, Harvard University
"With precision and clarity, the authors explain how the myth of apolitical public education exploded and how local control of schools was replaced by contentious politics and disjointed reform. Every would-be educational reformer should study this book for its historical illumination and as an antidote to hubris. Incomplete change and unintended consequences are universal lessons of political interventions over the last six decades. This book tells that story well."
--Charles Taylor Kerchner, Research Professor, School of Educational Studies, Claremont Graduate University
"Shaping Education Policy provides a comprehensive overview of where new policy initiatives and governance structures come from. Perhaps more importantly, it raises questions about what we might expect of their implementation."―Teachers College Record
