Product Description

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

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.
