About this book

This text critically addresses, through college student voices, the American school reform movement in its rhetoric, policy, and practice. It demonstrates how university courses can be designed to treat students as engaged citizens and contextualizes students' voices in the private university and the public sphere.

Reviews

"This book is a hopeful enterprise, but not at all romantic, for it paints a picture of what teaching looks like - to use the authors' own words, in all its 'emergent, unfinished, unpolished' glory. The authors conclude by arguing that, above all else, our students need our honesty about education reform. And that is exactly what they offer their readers." - Suzanne Wilson, University Distinguished Professor and Chair of the Department of Teacher Education, Michigan State University, USA
