Overview

For more than three decades Michael Apple has sought to uncover and articulate the connections among knowledge, teaching and power in education. Beginning with Ideology and Curriculum (1979), Apple moved to understand the relationship between and among the economy, political and cultural power in society on the one hand "and the ways in which education is thought about, organized and evaluated" on the other. This edited collection invites several of the world's leading education scholars to reflect on the relationships between education and power and the continued impact of Apple's scholarship. Like Apple's work itself, the essays will span a range of disciplines and inequalities; emancipatory educational practices; and the linkage between the economy and race, class and gender formation in relation to schools.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Though the book does not explicitly deal with the teaching of religion per se, instructors of Religious Studies or Theology will find the book an excellent jumping off point for discussions on the meaning of "education" and the purpose of "curriculum" in either discipline."—Michael Nichols, Teaching Theology & Religion (2009)
