President Obama has on a number of occasions rejected policies that have been tried anddo not work. Legislation such as No Child Left Behind and policies such as Race to theTop are neither effective nor based on sound research. Educational policy-making isnow, more than ever, the preserve of politicians, advocacy foundations, and lobbyistsparading as corporate leaders. Teachers have little voice; their role is merely to be heldresponsible for policies foisted upon them.In Transforming Schools: Alternative Perspectives on School Reform, our aim is toprovide alternative perspectives to the dead-end educational policies by which ourgovernments have become consumed. We turn the spotlight on a select range of topicsthat have become the focus of concern and we consider the implications for school improvement. These topics includeschool reform in general, the achievement gap, literacy, standardized assessment, social justice and ecojustice, aestheticand moral education, and general education.

Charting Reform, Achieving Equity in a Diverse Nation

6227 руб.
This book examines what equity means in a nation where the schools are becoming more diverse. Theauthors consider how well our educational reform policies, often framed in the language of equity andopportunity, measure up to the challenges of achieving equity in a diverse nation. While there is growingawareness of the increasing racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic diversity of the nation, there is littlerecognition of how these trends affect the schools, particularly in formerly homogeneous communities. Atthe same time, inequalities in student achievement between different racial, ethnic, and socioeconomicgroups persist, even as educational policy has intensified the focus on the achievement gap. These twochallenges make definitions of equity and opportunity as urban problems obsolete and call for a criticalexamination of educational policy and reform from an equity perspective. Central themes include the criticalexamination of how equity is conceived under the law and in policy, the experiences of minority students insuburban schools, and the impact of current reform policies and strategies for achieving greater educationalopportunities for all students.This book is designed for graduate and undergraduate courses in educational policy and policy analysis, for policymakers interested in a criticalexamination of current reform policies and options, and educational leaders and administrators struggling with the implementation of reformmandates. From a policy perspective, it inclu...

Within Citizenship for the Learning Society, the governance of the learning citizen is mapped in relation to European educational and cultural policy. Prevalent notions of voice and narrative – in policy and in educational research – are analysed in relation to Europe’s history. The text is concerned with the way in which ‘European citizenship’ is understood in current policy, the way in which the term ‘citizenship’ operates, and how learning is central to this Analysis combines educational philosophy and theory with anthropological, sociological, and classic philosophical literature Draws on both Continental European (Foucault, Deleuze, Heidegger, Levinas) and American (Cavell, Emerson, Thoreau) philosophy Material is organised in two parts: Part One discusses the discourses and practices of citizenship in the European learning society, in both educational and cultural policy and educational research, from the perspective of governmentality; Part Two provides analysis of particular aspects of this discourse

The book examines the capacity of the EU to shape the process of policy-making at the national level. It studies the impact of the Open Method of Coordination (the European Employment Strategy) on the childcare policy outcomes and discourses of the Netherlands. The applied analytical strategy - composed of the theory of discursive institutionalism coupled with the method of policy frame analysis - provides a thorough account of the evolution of the Dutch childcare policy and of the timing of the changes it underwent. Next to an analysis of the aggregate discursive dynamics of the policy field, the book provides also an insight into the framing activities of the individual policy actors (political parties and the Dutch social partners). Thus, it comprehensively reconstructs the political play in this sector of Dutch policy-making for the last fifty years. The unique contribution of the book is in the presentation of an accessible and rigorous research method to examine the domestic influence of international organizations via systematic tracing of the framing processes and discursive shifts at the international as well as at the national level of governance.

The thesis explores the meanings of inclusion within the post-compulsory education policy subsystem of the national education policy system.

Caribbean economies have been faced with mounting challenges arising from the increasing pace of economic globalization. The financial crisis of 2007 further exacerbated economic instability due to high foreign debt, lack of competitiveness, declining productivity, and high unemployment and underemployment. This in turn has precipitated increasing social and environmental problems, including poverty, inequality, crime and violence, and environmental degradation, all of which require new perspectives and policy approaches for transformative change and sustainable development. In this two volume multidisciplinary edited book The Modern Caribbean Economy, Volume I provides scholars and practitioners with alternative theoretical perspectives and concrete policy recommendations, while Volume II discusses economic, industrial, and social problems facing the Caribbean along with pragmatic proposals to successfully deal with these, while building local resilience and enhancing institutional strength in the region.

The intersection ofcapital and currency emerges similarly and differently within the American compulsory-based system of K-12 andthe choice-based system of higher education. More specifically, Contemporary Perspectives on Capital inEducational Contexts disentangles the broader challenges and opportunities of the institution of education and theindividuals who comprise. Emerging insights from the analyses provide an informed basis for ascertaining the rules of engagement and means of negotiationfor the respective constituencies. With that said, this volume essentially responds to three important questions: 1) What are the tenets of capital and currencyin public schools and higher education?; 2 ) How do institutions and individuals navigate those tenets?; and 3) What general and specific implications do capitalhold for the educational pipeline and beyond?

Research on the spatial aspects of economic activity has flourished over the past decade due to the emergence of new theory, new data, and an intense interest on the part of policymakers, especially in Europe but increasingly in North America and elsewhere as well. However, these efforts--collectively known as the "new economic geography"--have devoted little attention to the policy implications of the new theory. Economic Geography and Public Policy fills the gap by illustrating many new policy insights economic geography models can offer to the realm of theoretical policy analysis. Focusing primarily on trade policy, tax policy, and regional policy, Richard Baldwin and coauthors show how these models can be used to make sense of real-world situations. The book not only provides much fresh analysis but also synthesizes insights from the existing literature. The authors begin by presenting and analyzing the widest range of new economic geography models to date. From there they proceed to examine previously unaddressed welfare and policy issues including, in separate sections, trade policy (unilateral, reciprocal, and preferential), tax policy (agglomeration with taxes and public goods, tax competition and agglomeration), and regional policy (infrastructure policies and the political economy of regional subsidies). A well-organized, engaging narrative that progresses smoothly from fundamentals to more complex material, Economic Geography and Public Policy is essential ...

Conducting “policy relevant” research remains elusive yet important since evidence-based policymaking results in better public policy decisions. But how can this be done? What are some promising practices to help make academic scholarship more policy relevant? This monograph provides strategies that—when addressed—should improve the chances of a study becoming relevant to policy audiences. It provides: practical examples, theoretical perspectives, discussions of key stakeholders, and promising research strategies for framing work in policy relevant ways. By being more intentional about the policy relevance of our work and connecting research with emerging policy debates, we can increase the likelihood that future policy solutions will be evidence-based and informed by the most recent and rigorous research in our field. This the 2nd issue of the 41st volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education issue, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

6214 руб.
Dystopia and Education: Insights into Theory, Praxis, and Policy in an age of Utopia Gone Wrong providesan as-of-yet unexplored critical perspective for examining contemporary educational theory, praxis, andpolicy with particular reference to the current state of dehumanizing and often oppressive policy andpractices that have come to demarcate the era of NCLB and RTT. The authors in this collection employdystopian themes found in literature, film, visual art, and video games as the lens for that critical inquiry. Assuch Dystopia and Education: Insights into Theory, Praxis, and Policy is an essential contribution to thephilosophical/critical tradition in educational scholarship. It is especially valuable because the inquiryundertaken is from a new perspective-one that will extend the critical tradition into a yet unexplored arena.Given the educational climate established by NCLB and RTT, this collection is especially important to the ongoing critical analysis of such policymandates. There is also a significantly important timeliness to this book given NCLB's utopian expectation of universal academic proficiency amongAmerican schoolchildren by the year 2014: as educators race to achieve such a noble yet naïve goal, this collection of essays examines the educationalenvironment that has been enacted to achieve such ends, and describes our current state as a utopia-gone wrong.

4827 руб.
This two-volume text represents a common sense approach to basic macroeconomics. Economics, far from being the dismal science, offers us valuable lessons that can be applied to our everyday experiences. At its heart, economics is the science of choice and a study of economic principles allows us to achieve a more informed understanding of how we make our choices; whether these choices occur in our everyday life, our work environment, or at the national or international level. Volume two, Policies and Perspectives, delivers clear statements of essential economic principles, supported by real-world examples and uncluttered by extraneous material; the goal is to provide a concise readable primer that covers the substance of macroeconomic theory and policy. The text uses a single unifying tool-aggregate demand and aggregate supply analysis-to probe differing perspectives on macroeconomic policies. The text looks at fiscal policy and short-run stabilization; the financial sector and monetary policy; the international sector; and the sources of economic growth.

Does research influence public policy and decision-making and, if so, how? This book is the most recent to address this question, investigating the effects of research in the field of international development. It starts from a sophisticated understanding about how research influences public policy and decision-making. It shows how research can contribute to better governance in at least three ways: by encouraging open inquiry and debate, by empowering people with the knowledge to hold governments accountable, and by enlarging the array of policy options and solutions available to the policy process. Knowledge to Policy: Making the Most of Development Research examines the consequences of 23 research projects funded by Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC). Key findings and case studies from Asia, Africa, and Latin America are presented in a reader-friendly, journalistic style, giving the reader a deeper grasp and understanding of approaches, contexts, relationships and events. The book will be useful to academics, researchers and students of political science, public administration, development studies, and international affairs; professionals in donor and development organizations worldwide; policy- and decision-makers in government (local and national levels) and international arenas (particularly trade and finance); and development agencies and civil society (non-governmental) organizations concerned with integrating the voice of citizens into poli...

Education is a main issue in all countries. Policy makers, educators, families, students and, in amore general way, societies expect schools to provide a high quality education.

As senior researchers ineducation, we address some of the most complex and demanding research questions: How doeslearning affect identity? How does participation to educational settings, scenarios and situationsimpact the way we are or became?
