AUTHOR

Apple, Michael W.

SUMMARY

As American schools undergo a dramatic shift to the right, Michael W. Apple, internationally acclaimed author and educator, uncovers the roots of this conservative swing and points the way to a more balanced approach. Why have the needs of private business become top priorities in the public classroom? How did school vouchers move from the conservatice fringe to the political mainstream? Why are scores on standardized tests falling, even as teachers are forced to cram more 'facts' into their curricula? Apple argues that the interests of some strange bedfellows - neo-liberals, neo-conservatives, authoritarian populists, and the professional middle class, have converged to threaten the egalitarian ideals on which American public education was built. He dissects how this coalition has pushed educational policies toward a combination of weak state practices (markets, school choice) and strong state practices (state-mandated curricula and testing). A former classroom teacher himself, Apple offers concrete, common sense solutions that show what critical educators and parents can do to interrupt these trends and develop a more democratic educational system, suited to the needs of all American children.Apple, Michael W. is the author of 'Educating the "Right" Way Markets, Standards, God, and Inequality' with ISBN 9780415924627 and ISBN 0415924626.
