In Schools for Sale, author Ernest House debunks the myth that economic productivity should shape educational policy and practice. House conclusively illustrates that the attempts by the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton administrations to reshape the school to make “productive workers” ignore how schools work and students learn, and in the end are doomed to failure. Politically driven proposals for vouchers and privatization to increased calls for accountability and standards gain headlines and capture the attention of the public, but they routinely ignore the need to involve teachers and schools in the debate over the future of our schools.

;Based on his years of work as a professor of educational policy analysis, House develops an appraisal framework which evaluates reforms and enables readers to test the relative merits and viability of popular reform ideas. This book provides a signal service to politicians, policy makers, and the general public interested in creating a sustainable future for our nation’s students and schools.

About the Author:

Ernest R. House is Professor of Education at the University of Colorado at Boulder

Review:

“His analysis is insightful and his conclusions are provocative. Whatever your views on school improvement, they will be informed and challenged by this clear examination of what works, what doesn’t, and why.”
Thomas J. Sergiovanni, Trinity University



“In Schools for Sale, Ernest House has given us an honest and insightful appraisal of the realities and possibilities of lasting school reform. His criticisms are sharp and his own proposals deserve to be taken very seriously.”
Michael W. Apple, University of Wisconsin-Madison



“Some feel that the free market can be trusted to place a fair value on the efforts of teachers; others doubt it. House explains why the market is an untrustworthy instrument of change in this area, and where we should turn instead to reform our nation’s schools.”
Gene V. Glass, Arizona State University
