Education Under Siege
The Conservative, Liberal and Radical Debate over Schooling
Published October 8th 1987 by Routledge – 256 pages
Public spending on education is under attack. In this challenging book Aronowitz and Giroux examine the thinking behind that attack, in the USA and in other industrialized countries.
`Aronowitz & Giroux argue that criticism should be matched by a `discourse of possibilities'. Their book admirably exemplefies this approach. They develop a critique defying orodoxy and they offer school reforms which incorporate, rather than dismiss, existing professional practice…a powerful contribution to the emancipation of eductional theory and schooling.' - British Educational Research Journal
