Critical Education Policy and Politics
This series focuses on current issues in education policy. Books explore the development of the new educational policies and practices that are changing the structure and functioning of educational institutions—primary, secondary, and higher—both in the United States and abroad. In the US, the involvement of the federal government in legislating education has brought a new era of testing and accountability while raising questions about the role of schools in promoting social inclusion and providing basic training for the new economy, specifically science, technology, and math-related professions. Critical Education Policy and Politics will take on hot topics such as: charter schools, testing, vouchers and tax deductions for education, teacher education and the teaching profession, and public v. private competition, among other important issues in today’s educational politics.
