Between Capitalism and Democracy: Educational Policy and the Crisis of the Welfare State

Synopsis

Shapiro seeks to provide an understanding of the crisis in education in the 1980s and beyond by exploring the interconnection between educational policy and the structure of economic, political and cultural life in the United States, as well as in other developed capitalist societies. In arguing that educational policy is the effect of the continuing and contradictory political and ideological struggles, he presents the dialectical nature of the process through which educational policy and practices emerge. In doing so, he suggests the possibilities of radical intervention in public education during a period of conservative restoration.
