Book Description

Originally published in 1998, American Education and Corporations, provides a detailed study of the effects of commercialisation on the public school system. The book provides a powerful indictment of corporate culture and its influence on American public schooling, within a clear theoretical framework. The book looks at the threat of corporate culture to public education and advocates an understanding of the democratic importance of schooling as a public good.
