    I found myself challenged by much of what was presented in this book, and I discussed the ideas presented with several people. Very thought-provoking.

    The problem with writing a textbook about the politics of education is that it is easy to have and show a bias. The author of this text has a very obvious bias, making it difficult reading even when I completely agreed with him on a philosophical level.

    A good review of how government, corporate entities, and the global economy impact our educational systems at all levels and in all capacities.
