Eighteen experts, including Albert Shanker, Ernest L. Boyer, Thomas Kean, and John Menge, examine the issues surrounding educational choice in public school systems and the voucher system for private schools. They discuss when choice should be considered, methods of implementation, and the extent to which government should be involved. Descriptions and evaluations of choice programs that have been implemented are presented. The book includes contributions from both supporters and opponents of choice presented within an academic framework to enhance examination, debate, and analysis. Since 37 states have adopted legislation that provides some kind of choice in the public education system, the issues involved will be important to school boards, educational administrators, public policy makers, parents, and taxpayers.

Throughout much of the industrialised world in the 1980s and 1990s governments divested themselves of responsibility for providing services for their citizens and espoused the ideology of the market. In education the term ‘quasi-market’ has been used to describe the situation where the market forces introduced into schooling differ in some fundamental respects from classical free markets. This book brings together specially written accounts of developments in the quasi-market in nine countries. The authors were asked to focus on their own particular country and to review policy developments in school choice over the previous five to ten years. In addition they were asked to assess the research evidence on the workings of the quasi-market of schools and, in particular, the effects of such changes on children of different genders and from differing social class and ethnic backgrounds. The result is a series of thought-provoking articles that add greatly to our understanding of the pressures that led to quasi-markets in education, and of how particular countries have responded to such changes and to the potentially inequitable effects of such moves.

American Education And Corporations

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.

Sponsored by the American Educational Research Association In this completely revised edition of the Handbook of Research on Educational Administration, distinguished scholars draw from recent and classic studies to offer cross-disciplinary views of the most important research in K-12 education. They address the challenges that school leaders and policymakers face, the pressures that bear on their work, and the issues that they must address in order to create successful schools and districts. This comprehensive reference shows how organizational and leadership theory and practice have not only influenced, but responded to systemic changes in education--ranging from theories of learning to changing student demographics. The contributors are among the most respected researchers and thinkers in the field of educational leadership and administration. In twenty-four chapters, they examine the individual, organizational, and institutional dimensions of leadership--especially as they relate to changing views of teaching and learning, new forms of school organization and governance, and shifting trAnds in the social and community climate. The authors also pay particular attention to the changing roles and responsibilities of school administrators and the vital task of preparing new professionals for the field. Their explorations set the agAnda for future research and policy development. The Handbook of Research on Educational Administration is a vital reference for scholars, researchers, administrators, and graduate students who want to learn the fundamentals and latest findings in educational administration.
