The Politics of Education provides an introduction to both the political dimensions of schooling and the politics of recent educational reform debates. The book offers both undergraduates and starting graduate students in education an understanding of numerous dimensions of the contested field of education, addressing questions of political economy and class, cultural politics, race, gender, globalization, neoliberalism, and biopolitics. Discussions work through contemporary reform debates that include some of the most widely discussed reform topics such as school privatization, standardized testing, common core curriculum, discipline, and technology. The book covers contemporary educational debates and seriously considers views across the political spectrum from the vantage point of critical education, emphasizing schooling for broader social equality and justice.

Review:

Teachers need this book because Kenneth Saltman shatters the deep conviction that their work has nothing to do with politics. I needed this book for my first fifteen years as a teacher. --Susan Ohanian, teacher, educational activist, and author of Why Is Corporate America Bashing Our Schools?

The book is a timely contribution. It offers clear introductions to a wide range of strands in critical theory useful for the study of the politics of education...It offers an excellent springboard to prepare students to think critically about their teaching practice and engagement in the politics of education. ----Teachers College Record
