Overview

Essays by some of the world's leading educators provide a revolutionary portrait of new ideas and developments in education that can influence the possibility of social and political change. The authors take into account such diverse terrain as feminism, ecology, media, and individual liberty in their pursuit of new ideas that can inform the fundamental practice of education and promote a more humane civil society. The book consolidates recent thinking just as it reflects on emerging new lines of critical theory.

Six neo-Marxists present arguments exposing the inequalities and alienation present in Western capitalist educational institutions. Among the topics addressed are critiques of the glorification of a supposedly equalizing information society, and examination of community involvement in education, a discussion of how attacks upon postmodernism often disguise a more pernicious attack upon any kind of social politics, and an attack upon the "poisonous pedagogy" which bases its social content upon omission.
