The first volume to focus on the intersections of militarization, corporations, and education, Education as Enforcement exposed the many ways schooling has become the means through which the expansion of global corporate power are enforced. Since publication of the first edition, these trends have increased to disturbing levels as a result of the extensive militarization of civil society, the implosion of the neoconservative movement, and the financial meltdown that radically called into question the basic assumptions undergirding neoliberal ideology. An understanding of the enforcement of these corporate economic imperatives remains imperative to a critical discussion of related militarized trends in schools, whether through accountability and standards, school security, or other discipline based reforms.

Education as Enforcement elaborates upon the central arguments of the first edition and updates readers on how recent events have reinforced their continued original relevance. In addition to substantive updates to several original chapters, this second edition includes a new foreword by Henry Giroux, a new introduction, and four new chapters that reveal the most contemporary expressions of the militarization and corporatization of education. New topics covered in this collection include zero-tolerance, foreign and second language instruction in the post-9/11 context, the rise of single-sex classrooms, and the intersection of the militarization and corporatization of schools under the Obama administration.

Review

"American schooling narrows life choices to a stark dilemma---resist, or become a thug for capital. If you hold out hope for an education in joy and democracy, read this eye-opening book: read it, teach it, give it away, and then shout it from the mountaintops."

--Marc Bousquet, Associate Professor, Santa Clara University

"Kenneth J. Saltman and David A. Gabbard's revised and expanded edition of Education as Enforcement provides a set of powerful critiques of the continued militarization and corporatization of schools. The studies document serious crises in education in the United States and the need for urgent reform."

--Douglas Kellner, Professor and George F. Kneller Philosophy of Education Chair, University of California, Los Angeles

5.0 out of 5 stars The emperor is no longer seen as fully dressed July 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Until we all realize that the schools have largely become vehicles for replicating the status-quo, for producing people who will follow orders and buy products, and maybe even increase prison populations, we will continue our cultural spiral downhill. This book and its very credible authors explain why we should be concerned.
