Social Movements and Political Practice in Education
Apple, Michael W.
Theory and Research in Education, v5 n2 p161-171 2007
In this article I respond to the analyses of "Educating the 'Right' Way" and "The State and the Politics of Knowledge" that were given by Stephen Ball, Russell Fox and Antonio Novoa. I situate the development of the kinds of argument that these books make, in the larger corpus of my work and in the growth of neoliberal, neoconservative, authoritarian populist religious movements, and the new managerial emphases that have become so powerful internationally in education. I then discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the thoughtful points made by Ball, Fox and Novoa.
