Education and power by Michael W Apple( Book )

74 editions published between 1982 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this text Michael Apple first articulated his theory on educational institutions and the reproduction of and resistance to unequal power relations, and provided a thorough examination of the ways in which race-gender-class dynamics are embedded in, and reflected through, curricular issues. While many of the theories set forward in this book are now taken for granted by the left in education, they were nothing short of revolutionary when first proposed. In this newly reissued classic edition, Apple suggests that we need to take seriously the complicated and contradictory economic, political and cultural structures that provide for some of the most important limits on, and possibilities for, critical education. He re-examines his earlier arguments and reflects on what has happened over the intervening years. Education and Power is a vital example of the call to challenge the taken for granted assumptions that underpin so much of what happens in education
Official knowledge : democratic education in a conservative age by Michael W Apple( Book )

42 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This third edition of Official Knowledge, the classic text from one of the worlds most distinguished education scholars, encourages educators once again to critically examine the relationship among knowledge, power, and education. Rather than simply asking whether students have mastered a particular subject matter or done well on ubiquitous tests, Michael W. Apple instead challenges readers to probe the deeper questions of whose knowledge the curriculum represents and how it came official? The award-winning Official Knowledge offers a powerful examination of the rightist resurgence in education and the challenges it presents to concerned educators. Updates and features of the 3rd edition include: a new and detailed preface that situates it within the current debates within education; updates throughout all chapters, with a special focus on Chapter 2, Why the Right is Winning, to document how the Right has changed our commonsense about what counts as a good school, good curricula, good teaching, to such an extent that even the Obama Administrations policies for educational reform incorporate much of the neoliberal agenda; a new section on the current controversies over curriculum and textbooks, focusing on the very conservative changes in textbook policies and content in Texas and Arizona; and the addition of an autobiographical chapter so that the arguments of the book make sense in terms of the concrete struggles over education over a lifetime of work"--Provided by publisher

This book presents controversial aspects of evaluation and aims at broadening perspectives and insights in the evaluation field. Chapter 1 criticizes modes of evaluation and the basic rationality behind them and focuses on assumptions that have problematic consequences. Chapter 2 introduces concepts of evaluation and examines methods of grading students, judging teacher effectiveness, and determining the worth of new educational programs. Chapter 3 examines logical issues arising from the nature of evaluation and focuses on the place of value judgments in evaluation. Chapter 4 focuses on three questions relating to the products of naturalistic studies. Chapter 5 addresses the following issues: a) the use of regression analysis to discover how and why educational programs are successful or unsuccessful, b) the strengths and weaknesses of various evaluative research designs, c) the effects of statistical and measurement error on conclusions drawn from a study, and d) future trends in evaluation. Chapter 6 discusses three central issues in the field of secondary education. Chapter 7 emphasizes the following themes: a) learning should be examined while it is taking place; b) the milieu in which learning occurs should be analyzed; and c) standardized test outcomes are not the sole criterion on which the success or failure of an educational enterprise should be judged. Chapter 8 presents five substantive theses concerning the roots of the testing and evaluation movement. (Pd)

Power, knowledge, pedagogy : the meaning of democratic education in unsettling times by Dennis Carlson( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume explore the educational implications of unsettling shifts in contemporary culture associated with postmodernism. These shifts include the fragmentation of established power blocs, the emergence of a politics of identity, growing inequalities between the haves and the have-nots in a new global economy, and the rise in influence of popular culture in defining who we are. In the academy, postmodernism has been associated with the emergence of new theoretical perspectives that are unsetting the way we think about education. These shifts, the authors suggest, are deeply contradictory and may lead in divergent political directionssome of them quite dangerous. Power/Knowledge/Pedagogy examines these issues with regard to four broad domains of educational inquiry: state educational policy and curriculum reform, student identity formation, the curriculum as a text, and critical pedagogy

Can education change society? by Michael W Apple( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite the vast differences between the Right and the Left over the role of education in the production of inequality one common element both sides share is a sense that education can and should do something about society, to either restore what is being lost or radically alter what is there now. The question was perhaps put most succinctly by the radical educator George Counts in 1932 when he asked "Dare the School Build a New Social Order?", challenging entire generations of educators to participate in, actually to lead, the reconstruction of society. Over 70 years later, celebrated educator, author and activist Michael Apple revisits Counts' now iconic works, compares them to the equally powerful voices of minoritized people, and again asks the seemingly simply question of whether education truly has the power to change society. In this groundbreaking work, Apple pushes educators toward a more substantial understanding of what schools do and what we can do to challenge the relations of dominance and subordination in the larger society. This touchstone volume is both provocative and honest about the ideological and economic conditions that groups in society are facing and is certain to become another classic in the canon of Apple's work and the literature on education more generally
