About this book

We live in an era where our view of school is reduced by a superficial public conversation. In this context, the complexity of the educational process and the debate over the purpose of schooling is lost. This book brings together leading scholars of education to analyze these issues and engage the public in different ways of looking at school.

Reviews

“This is a fascinating and useful book, and I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to review it. … I wish I could say this book should be read by everyone interested in sociology and psychoanalysis, because I admire the spirit and intelligence that went into it. But I can say honestly and wholeheartedly, that those who work on any topic covered by the chapters contained in this book would be making a grave mistake not to consult it.” (Kenneth Eisold, Contemporary Psychoanalysis, March, 2016)



'Written with great clarity, passion and hope, the authors in this collection serve up a chilling examination of a disintegrating educational system. Dominated by hidden corporate-class agendas, obsolete paradigms, and self-serving ideologies, our schools defeat not only our children, but our nation and ultimately, our world.' - Dr. Donna Gaines, author of Teenage Wasteland: Suburbia's Dead End Kids

'Steinberg and Kincheloe's scholarship examines the intellectual and moral climate of the times and the root in contemporary society of tendencies that are distressing and ominous.' - Noam Chomsky, Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy, MIT

'Shirley Steinberg and Joe Kincheloe have changed the landscape of education in the United States. They have done this through their numerous groundbreaking publication series, through their international collaborations with progressive educators around the world, but most of all through their own brilliant and iconoclastic work.' - Peter McLaren, Professor, University of California, Los Angeles, and author of Capitalists and Conquerors

'Steinberg and Kincheloe provide readers with the very best of critical pedagogy and cultural studies.' - Norman K. Denzin, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

'Steinberg and Kincheloe's work sparkles with the critical and creative energy of scholars and educators whose primary concern is with education that serves students on their own grounds, and helps our society realize the riches of diversity.' - Kenneth J. Gergen, Mustin Professor of Psychology, Swarthmore College

'Steinberg and Kincheloe are must reading for all of those whose ethics demand that they become agents of change in the difficult and constant struggle toward social justice and democracy.' - Donaldo Macedo, Distinguished Professor of Liberal Arts and Education,University of Massachusetts, Boston
