Joel Spring

Political Agendas for Education: From Change We Can Believe In to Putting America First, 4th ed.
(Routledge, 2010)

Spring brings up to date his description and analysis of the current educational agendas of major political players and organizations with this fourth edition of a book first published in 1997. The focus is on the Republican and Democratic parties in the 2008 national election and post-2008 election era. Spring discusses the ideological perspective of both groups and how Democrats came to support No Child Left Behind as a solution to civil rights issues. This is an essential text for courses dealing with the politics of education, and for educational scholars, professionals, policymakers, and all those concerned with the politics of education in the United States and its consequences for schools and society. Joel Spring (Prof., Queens) is on the doctoral faculty in urban education.
