Review:

This volume offers us a powerful look at what our current education system is doing to us instead of for us. If you have any doubt that education has become a business designed to first serve corporate interests, then political interests, and rarely individual and community interests, Education as Enforcement is a real education for you.
–Gloria Ladson-Billings, University of Wisconsin, Madison

For those of us who have worried that the high-standards, high-stakes reform movement really seeks to mold children into standardized, docile, obedient widget makers taking orders from global corporations, Education as Enforcement provides the realization of our worst nightmare. The chapters range from the abstract and conceptual to concrete examples in the schools of Boston, Chicago, and Philadelphia to descriptions of how video games train children as soldiers. About the most comforting words in the book are only that the totalitarian trend we are enduring is not inevitable.
–Gerald W. Bracey, George Mason University and High/Scope Educational Research Foundation
