Official Knowledge: Democratic Education in a Conservative Age Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

A powerful examination of the rightist resurgence in education and the challenges it presents to concerned educators, Official Knowledge analyzes the effects of conservative beliefs and strategies on educational policy and practice. Now revised and updated to reflect the very latest developments in the realm of education and policy, Apple looks specifically at the conservative agenda's incursion into education through curriculum, textbook adoption policies and the efforts of the private and business sectors to centralize their interests within schools. At the same time, however, he points out areas of hope for the future, showing how students and teachers have continued the struggle and are now successfully engaged in building more democratic education policies and practices. Finally, Apple writes in personal terms about his own teaching techniques and work with students both of which challenge some of the ideological and educational policies and practices of the Right.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 204-214) and index.
