Summary
"This book reviews the political shift toward neo-liberal ideology and explores its tremendous impact on education. It explains with striking clarity the causes precipitating this major ideological shift and considers the potential threats neo-liberal ideology, with its focus on human capital preparation and instrumental learning, poses to public education in a democracy." "The authors map out in careful detail the theoretical foundations of democratic citizenship by asking the question: What does it mean to learn and live in a democracy and what responsibilities, capacities and knowledge does a citizen need to fulfill these requirements? The book explains with tremendous urgency how present forms of human capital and career education interfere with these democratic requirements." "The authors employ ideas from progressivism, liberal education and critical theory to support democratic learning. The book outlines in an accessible fashion a number of political, academic and intellectual strategies that educators might pursue to reclaim education for democratic citizenship."--Jacket
