Schools, vouchers, and the American public by Terry M Moe( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book Terry Moe takes a penetrating look at the school voucher movement and its growing challenge to the traditional system of American education. Schools, vouchers, and the American public examines the democratic foundations of the voucher issue, what they mean for the kinds of political coalitions that are likely to form and the kinds of proposals that are likely to win-and what all this implies for the role that vouchers will play in the future of American education. Based on an extensive, nationally representative survey, this book is an effort to not only comprehend where the American people stand on the voucher issue, but to get beneath the surface to find out why people think what they do, and how their underlying values, beliefs, and interests can affect the course of political events. The results show that while Americans like public schools, they are also quite open to vouchers, which have special appeal to those who are socially less advantaged, members of minority groups, and residents from low-performing districts. The voucher movement gains its greatest support, the analysis suggests, when it moves away from the free market toward limited, regulated approaches that begin with the neediest children

Liberating learning : technology, politics, and the future of American education by Terry M Moe( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Praise for Liberating Learning"Moe and Chubb have delivered a truly stunning book, rich with the prospect of how technology is already revolutionizing learning in communities from Midland, Pennsylvania to Gurgaon, India. At the same time, this is a sobering telling of the realpolitik of education, a battle in which the status quo is well defended. But most of all, this book is a call to action, a call to unleash the power of technological innovation to create an education system worthy of our aspirations and our childrens' dreams."--Ted Mitchell, CEO of the New Schools Venture Fund"As long as we continue to educate students without regard for the way the real world works, we will continue to limit their choices. In Liberating Learning, Terry Moe and John Chubb push us to ask the questions we should be asking, to have the hard conversations about how far technology can go to advance student achievement in this country."--Michelle Rhee, Chancellor of Education for the Washington, D.C. schools"A brilliant analysis of how technology is destined to transform America's schools for the better: not simply by generating new ways of learning, but also-and surprisingly-by unleashing forces that weaken its political opponents and open up the political process to educational change. A provocative, entirely novel vision of the future of American education."--Rick Hanushek, the Paul and Jean Hanna Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University "Terry Moe and John Chubb, two long-time, astute observers of educational reform, see technology as the way to reverse decades of failed efforts. Technology will facilitate significantly more individualized student learning-and perhaps most importantly, technology will make it harder and harder for the entrenched adult interests to block the reforms that are right for our kids. This is a provocative, informative and, ultimately, optimistic read, something we badly need in public education." -Joel Klein, Chancellor of the New York City schools
A lesson in school reform from Great Britain by John E Chubb( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an analysis of school reform in Great Britain, this book shows how the landmark Education Reform Act of 1988 (era) imposed a radically new framework on British education. This framework is built on the same types of reforms that American activists have been proposing for years: school-based management (sbm), choice, and accountability. Methodology is based on field observation, with attention to schools in the disadvantaged neighborhoods of London and Birmingham, and interviews with teachers, headmasters, elected officials, administrators, interest group leaders, and academics. Based on the assertion that meaningful autonomy is not possible within the current educational system, a framework for a governmental choice system that is not a free market approach is developed. Because sbm and accountability are not threatening to the system, they constitute the preferred approaches to educational reform in Britain and the United States. However, choice alone offers radical systemic change. Following an analysis of the three choice provisions of the ERA--open enrollment, city technology colleges, and opting out--suggestions are offered for improving the British system. Reasons are offered for why the Conservative and Republican parties in Great Britain and the United States, respectively, are the most likely to successfully transform their educational systems.

Relic : how our constitution undermines effective government, and why we need a more powerful presidency by William G Howell( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Our government is failing us. Can we simply blame polarization, the deregulation of campaign finance, or some other nefarious force? What if the roots go much deeper, to our nation's start? In Relic, the political scientists William Howell and Terry Moe boldly argue that nothing less than the U.S. Constitution is the cause of government dysfunction. The framers came from a simple, small, agrarian society, and set forth a government comprised of separate powers, one of which, Congress, was expected to respond to the parochial concerns of citizens across the land. By design, the national government they created was incapable of taking broad and meaningful action. But a hundred years after the nation's founding, the United States was transformed into a complex, large, and industrial society. The key, they argue, is to expand the powers of the president. Presidents take a longer view of things out of concern for their legacies, and are able to act without hesitation. To back up this controversial remedy, Howell and Moe offer an incisive understanding of the Progressive Movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, one of the most powerful movements in American history. The Progressives shone a bright light on the mismatch between our constitutional government and the demands of modernity, and they succeeded in changing our government, sidelining Congress and installing a presidentially-led system that was more able to tackle the nation's vast social problems. Howell and Moe argue that we need a second Progressive Movement dedicated to effective government, above all to reforms that promote strong presidential leadership. For it is through the presidency that the American government can address the problems that threaten the very stability of our society"--

Politics, markets, and the organization of schools by John E Chubb( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 1990 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on the results of an "Administrator and Teacher Survey" (ats) administered to approximately 500 of the schools included in the "High School and Beyond" (hsb) longitudinal study (which showed that private schools produce significantly greater gains in achievement than public schools), the present study is a detailed comparative description of public and private schools--their relationships with parents and outside authorities, their leadership, their organizational structure, their interpersonal relationships, and their educational environments and practices. The general explanation explored in this paper is that the school environment exerts important and systematic influences over the development of the organizational characteristics necessary for success. The paper begins with a general perspective that emphasizes the school as an organization, followed by a general comparison of public and private school structure and purpose. The following sections compare (1) the relation of public and private schools to their immediate outside authorities, (2) the parental environment, (3) the role of public and private principals, (3) the structure of the school, (4) school personnel, and (5) staff relations. The conclusion suggests that the difference in performance between public and private schools ultimately derives from the greater political constraints of the public school environment, as this is reflected in the role of the principal and in staff relations. Notes and tables are included, along with an appendix describing the derivation of the data from the ats, and a bibliography. (Te)
The comparative politics of education : teachers unions and education systems around the world( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Public education is critically important to the human capital, social well-being, and economic prosperity of nations. It is also an intensely political realm of public policy that is heavily shaped by power and special interests. Yet political scientists rarely study education, and education researchers rarely study politics. This volume attempts to change that by promoting the development of a coherent, thriving field on the comparative politics of education. As an opening wedge, the authors carry out an 11-nation comparative study of the political role of teachers unions, showing that as education systems everywhere became institutionalized, teachers unions pursued their interests by becoming well-organized, politically active, highly influential - and during the modern era, the main opponents of neoliberal reform. Across diverse nations, the commonalities are striking. The challenge going forward is to expand on this study's scope, theory, and evidence to bring education into the heart of comparative politics"--
