The End of Exceptionalism in American Education: The Changing Politics of School Reform
Henig, Jeffrey R.
Harvard Education Press
Over the past fifty years, the "special status" of education decision-making has been eroded. Once the province of local and state school boards, decisions about schools and schooling have begun to emerge in every level and branch of government. In "The End of Exceptionalism in American Education," Jeffrey R. Henig traces the roots of this tectonic shift in school governance. Carefully reasoned, astutely observed, and thoughtfully presented, this volume promises to become a classic work in our understanding of education policy--and an invaluable resource for those seeking to influence its future trajectory.
