About the Author:

Thomas J. Fiala, Arkansas State University, USA

Review:

"This timely book goes beyond the tired debates about the Common Core State Standards and asks instead: How did we get here, with self-appointed "reformers" casting public schools as the enemy, and unproven market models for education as the answer? This comprehensively documented treatment of that question proves that Deborah Duncan Owens is a voice to be reckoned with in education policy debates." - Christopher Lubienski, Professor of Education Policy, University of Illinois, USA; Sir Walter Murdoch Visiting Adjunct Professor, Murdoch University, Australia; and author of The Public School Advantage: Why Public Schools Outperform Private Schools (2014)

"Deborah Owens offers a detailed probe of the corporate-political alliances that cross party lines to push radical ventures traveling as education reform. She provides a needed history of what is really behind the Common Core, the curriculum and testing it requires, and why anyone who supports the survival of local public schools should care." - Susan Ohanian, Fellow, National Education Policy Center

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 288 pages. How did a movement so contentious as the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) become public education policy throughout the United States Deborah Duncan Owens provides an insightful historical analysis of the CCSS, beginning with conservative criticism of public schools in the 1930s and culminating in a convergence of the interests of the right, the left, and corporate America in systemically reforming education based on free market principles. Through an in-depth tour of education policies and movements over thirty-five years, Owens clearly identifies the advocates, politicians, authors, and thinkers who paved the way for the dominant way of thinking about public education in the United States today. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137482679
