Summary

In this fully updated edition of his bestselling book, Stephen J. Ball guides us through a flood of government initiatives and policies concerning education over the past twenty years, showing how these policy interventions have changed the landscape and meaning of education, turned children into learners and parents into consumers, and played their part in the reformation of contemporary governance. Analyzing current policies and ideas around education from a sociological approach, he addresses issues of class, choice, globalization, race, and citizenship. The book will interest student-teachers, other students of politics and social policy courses, and the general reader who wants to go beyond simplistic analyses of newspapers.
