About this book

This book presents a critical analysis of the anti-democratic and pro-authoritarian ideologies that exist in rural communities in the United States. The author book also explores and recontextualizes existing research in rural education within this anti-democratic framework, as well as theorizing the consequences of this ideology as it takes place in the rural United States, specifically in regards to the physical and ideological shaping of rural communities to meet the needs of capitalist accumulation. Finally, it discusses the ways rural youth can reclaim the public sphere within their communities through critical education.

Reviews

 
“Cervone offers a timely critical analysis of rural education that will provoke important conversations about the devastating effect of neoliberalism on rural communities and the role education must play in building new relationships across rural, urban, and suburban communities. A must-read for anyone interested in working toward a more inclusive democratic society.” (Jacqueline Edmondson, Chancellor and Chief Academic Officer, Penn State University, USA)

 “This book is a timely investigation of how rural identity politics and market interests coalesce as the corporate bandwagon hitches up schooling outside the cities. Cervone shows how rural schools are an emerging market opportunity, and how much of the ideological groundwork needed to destroy public institutions in rural America has already been accomplished, ironically by the liberal establishment.” (Michael Corbett, Professor of Rural and Regional Education, University of Tasmania, Australia)
