InPolitical Agendas for Education: From the Religious Right to the Green Party, Third Edition,Joel Spring brings up-to-date his description and analysis of the current educational agendas of major political players and organizations. The focus of this edition is the 2004 presidential campaign and the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Spring discusses the ideological perspective of each major political group and how its ideology is represented in No Child Left Behind: *The religious agenda of Republicans who identify themselves as compassionate conservatives; *The free market ideology of Republicans who consider themselves neoconservative Republicans; *The thinking of the New Democrats, who claim a major responsibility for passage of the No Child Left Behind Act and support its accountability requirements; and *The educational agendas and criticisms of No Child Left Behind offered by Ralph Nader's 2004 presidential campaign organization, the Green Party, the Rainbow Coalition, and the National Organization of Women. Political Agendas for Education: From the Religious Right to the Green Party, Third Editionis an essential text for courses dealing with the politics of education, foundations of education, educational leadership, and curriculum studies, and a must-read volume for educational scholars, professionals, policymakers, and all those concerned with the politics of education in the U.S. and its consequences for schools and society.
