Editorial Reviews

Review

"In this critique and call to arms, Spring (Queens College, City Univ. of New York) contrasts schools in an ‘educational security state’ with ‘progressive education, [concluding] that the industrial-consumer paradigm for schooling has triumphed over education that searches for human happiness, is environmentally sensitive, empowers people as actors in the reconstruction of society, and uses the traditional knowledge of indigenous people….Recommended." – CHOICE, September 2006, Vol. 44, No. 01

"... it is a 'good read,' like a mystery novel that makes you want to jump to the last chapter to see where the author is leading... we are grateful to Joel Spring for writing it." - Sherry McCarthy & Glenn Hookstra, PsycCRITIQUES
