Education Policy and Family Values: A Critical Analysis of Initiatives from the Right
Kumashiro, Kevin K.
Multicultural Perspectives, v11 n2 p72-79 2009
This article analyzes current education policy initiatives from the political Right in the United States, focusing on initiatives at the federal level (standards and testing), the state level (funding), the local level (alternative certification), and the campus level (censorship). Each initiative has received wide bipartisan and public support, largely due to the ways that they have been framed, particularly around family values. Implications for future research and practice conclude the article.
