Sustaining the new economy : work, family, and community in the information age by Martin Carnoy( )

28 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 2,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sustaining the New Economy explores the growing tension between the requirements of employers for a flexible work force and the ability of parents and communities to nurture their children and provide for their health, welfare, and education. Global competition and the spread of information technology are forcing businesses to engage in rapid, world-wide production changes, customized marketing, and just-in-time delivery. They are reorganizing work around decentralized management, work differentiation, and short-term and part-time employment. Increasingly, workers must be able to move across firms and even across types of work, as jobs get redefined."--Jacket
The state and political theory by Martin Carnoy( )

35 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martin Carnoy clarifies the important contemporary debate on the social role of an increasingly complex State. He analyzes the most recent recasting of Marxist political theories in continental Europe, the Third World, and the United States; sets the new theories in a context of past thinking about the State; and argues for the existence of a major shift in Marxist views. Originally published in 1984. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton Un
All else equal : are public and private schools different? by Luis Benveniste( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[Authors conclude] that there's very little difference between public schools and their nearby private counterparts. Inner-city private schools, most of which are Catholic, suffer from the same problems neighboring public schools have, including large class sizes, unqualified teachers, outdated curricula, lack of parental involvement, and stressful family and community circumstances.--From publisher description
Education and social transition in the Third World by Martin Carnoy( )

13 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and held by 1,323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a comparative analysis of educational theory and practice, this analytic overview illuminates the larger economic and political changes occurring in five peripheral countries--China, Cuba, Tanzania, Mozambique, and Nicaragua--commonly viewed as in transition to socialism. Current political patterns and leadership in these countries have emerged in the context of predominantly agricultural, industrially underdeveloped economies. Each state has played a major role in social transformation, relying on the educational system to train, educate, and socialize its future citizens. Discussing the similarities and differences among these states, the authors show the primacy of politics and the interaction of material and ideological goals in the process of social transition, and how shifting policies reflect and are reflected in educational change. This collection first examines critical analyses of education in capitalist societies, both industrialized and peripheral, and explores the utility of those perspectives in the political and educational conditions of the countries under study. Together these essays offer the first systematic explanation of how and why education in socialist countries undergoing rapid change differs from education in developing capitalist countries. Contributions to the study were made by Mary Ann Burris, Anton Johnston, and Carlos Alberto Torres. Originally published in 1990. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These paperback editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905

University expansion in a changing global economy : triumph of the BRICs? by Martin Carnoy( )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 996 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of higher education in the world's four largest developing economies--Brazil, Russia, India, and China. Already important players globally, by mid-century, they are likely to be economic powerhouses. But whether they reach that level of development will depend in part on how successfully they create quality higher education that puts their labor forces at the cutting edge of the information society. Using an empirical, comparative approach, this book develops a broad picture of the higher education system in each country in the context of both global and local forces. The authors offer insights into how differing socioeconomic and historic patterns of change and political contexts influence developments in higher education. In asking why each state takes the approach that it does, this work situates a discussion of university expansion and quality in the context of governments' educational policies and reflects on the larger struggles over social goals and the distribution of national resources

Faded dreams : the politics and economics of race in America by Martin Carnoy( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faded Dreams paints a new picture of why racial inequality changes in America - one that challenges existing explanations by putting politics at center stage. The author argues that blacks began to catch up economically with whites mainly when government policy makers, under political pressure by blacks and backed by an important segment of the white community, pushed for greater economic equality. Similarly, the greatest obstacles to black gains in other periods have been government policies. Policy makers usually assumed away the race problem or used it against blacks and whites for political purposes, legitimating existing inequality and often making it worse. Through a systematic analysis of fifty years of data on income, education, and the kinds of jobs blacks and whites hold, Faded Dreams makes a powerful case that it takes active government to undo wage and job discrimination and to improve the education and living conditions of disadvantaged black youth

"Standard-based accountability" has become a consistent buzzword emanating from the mouths of hopeful politicians-liberal and conservative-for almost twenty years. But does accountability work?

Decentralization and school improvement : can we fulfill the promise? by Jane Hannaway( Book )

11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Do decentralization reforms hold real promise for American education? Is there a relationship between the structure of the system and its performance? What can we learn about decentralization from history? from other industries? from other public sectors? from other countries? And what risks does decentralization entail?" "In this book, eight distinguished contributors examine these and other questions related to the likely effects of decentralizing school governance on educational practice. Drawing on theoretical models, case studies, and comparative analyses of other sectors and countries, the authors argue that governance reforms are likely to have little impact on what actually happens in schools. They explain the cyclical and reactionary nature of decentralization debates and show how they are endemic to modern society. And they tell why decentralized structural arrangements alone are unlikely to establish conditions necessary for general improvement in educational practice." "Educational researchers, administrators, and policymakers will learn how linking decentralization reforms with higher performance demands, more directed technical demands, and clearer accountability systems can make important and lasting contributions to improving education. Sponsored by the Consortium for Policy Research in Education."--Jacket
