Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The most effective way that you, as an educator, can influence policy makers' visions for your schools is to understand the political, social, and historical implications behind educational policy. The newest book in the Literacy Studies Series supports this point with a fascinating glimpse into how President Clinton's America Reads Challenge has not met its expectations. This case study demonstrates how the clashing values behind the goals, organization, and implementation of literacy education policy resulted in an initiative that served some, but not all, U.S. children. Author Edmondson calls for educators to not buy into the policies of individuals or groups far removed from the classroom. Ultimately, it is your political knowledge and participation that can do much to effect change in the schools.
