Pedagogy and Popular Culture #01: American Education and Corporations: The Free Market Goes to School

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This work argues that private businesses use public schools as worker training sites, resulting in a devalued teaching force, students as uncritical consumers, and schools as economic markets. Boyles analyzes school-business partnerships, revealing false philanthropy and the ulterior motives behind fast-food reading campaigns and supermarket "sales for schools" promotions. This important book criticizes the practice of privatization itself, revealing it to be a conservative gambit to secure class differences, and not a simple extension of free market business influence into the public sector.

Book News Annotation:

Analyzes school-business partnerships and points out false philanthropy and the ulterior motives behind fast-food reading campaigns and supermarket Sales for Schools promotions. Criticizes privatization in general, describing it as a gambit to secure class differences rather than a simple extension of the free-market into the public sectOR (booknews.com) Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
