About this book

Making Sense of School Choice explains why school choice fails to deliver on its promise to meet the needs of culturally diverse populations, even in one of the world's most marketized education systems. Windle offers fresh insights into the transnational processes involved in producing educational inequalities.

Reviews

“This book received not one, but two of TASA’s book awards in 2016: the Raewyn Connell Prize for the best first book in Australian sociology and the Stephen Crook Memorial Prize for the best book in Australian sociology. The awards are well deserved. … for anyone with an interest in education, social inclusion and social justice, this book offers a profound and important critique of our current system.” (Christina Ho, Journal of Sociology, Vol. 53 (1), 2015)


"Few scholars can leverage the skills and insights that Windle brings to this brilliant analysis of school choice policies. In this provocative book, Windle shows how 'choice' can represent drastically different systems for different groups. In particular, Windle expertly utilizes multiple lenses of majority populations, ethnic-minority groups, exclusive schools, and "socially exposed" schools in dissecting school choice policies. This is a major contribution to our understanding of how choice works, and how it doesn't." - Christopher Lubienski, Professor of Education Policy and Director of the Forum on the Future of Public Education, University of Illinois, USA
