Editorial Reviews

Review

«I have been reading Henry A. Giroux for decades and in this book he has never been better nor clearer at illuminating the forces that are impairing our democracy and helping to destroy our public schools. ‘Education and the Crisis of Public Values’ is a marvelously insightful examination of the forces that have changed our nation’s teachers from citizens whom we admired, into objects of humiliation, a profession to be shamed and blamed for problems created by our businesses and the politicians who they influence. This trend must be reversed or we lose a necessary part of what makes our democracy possible.» (David Berliner)<BR> «Henry A. Giroux is a one-of-a-kind gift to civic life, a scholar of immense learning and deep commitment to social justice. For the last three decades, he has written and spoken tirelessly in defense of the public good embedded in public education. This age has been unkind to all amenities in the public sphere and in this toxic time no one has been a stronger champion for education, students and teachers than Henry. His new book collects his sharpest critiques against privatization and his most articulate defense of public needs. In these pages, we have the intelligence we need to defend civil society against its corporate assailants.» (Ira Shor, City University of NY Graduate Center)<BR> «Fresh, original, and articulate, Henry A. Giroux’s newest masterpiece is ‘Education and the Crisis of Public Values’. In the context of the increasing corporatization of public education, where academics are defined not as critical intellectuals but as state workers, Giroux calls for substantive and meaningful reform - reform that values engaged citizenship, civic courage, and a genuine embracing of freedom and justice. This book is an impassioned plea for our future. We all would do well to heed his call.» (Gary A. Olson, Provost and Vice President Idaho State University)<BR> «Teachers and students have for long been on the receiving end of attacks by the state and corporate power. They should take heart from and draw strength from this book by Henry A. Giroux, one of critical pedagogy's most powerful advocates. He is the scourge of those who endorse the commodification of education and partake of the war on children and youth. He is also a great source of inspiration to those who continue to regard education as a public good and an important feature of a substantive democracy.» (Peter Mayo, University of Malta)

This book is a quick read but a MUST READ for any educator that is currently wondering what's happening to the American education system and the attack on the public school sector. Giroux's observations are articulate and to the point and the reality is, his assessment is quite accurate!

This book was in perfect condition when I received it. However, it took forever to get to me. By the time I got it, I didn't need it. I had to go out and buy it at a bookstore because I needed it for one of my classes. I was so busy with class and work that I forgot to return it. Now I have 2 copies. Hooray.
