About this item

Most states’ educational responsibilities—assessment of constituents, curriculum development, and instructional protocols—are increasingly being outsourced to private enterprises in an effort to reduce state budgets. These enterprises have been given wide access to state resources such as public data from state sanctioned testing results, field-testing rights to public schools, and financial assistance.

This booktakes a critical view of the monoculture that has developed in education with the increase of federal funding and privatization of services for public education, and examines the shift from public interest and control to private and corporate shareholder hegemony. The contributions herein challenge the model that has set growing premiums on accountability and performance measures, and outline one that emphasizes transparency and balance among constituents in public education. The first book that connects the standards movement and the privatization of education, this book will be of interest to researchers and educators in Educational Policy, as well as Sociology.
