Reviews:

“An extraordinary emancipatory work: bravely negotiating the globalized toxic ruins of neo-liberalism. This is a liberatory project that embraces building a more just and democratic social world, transforming the ashes of oppressive pedagogical practices into a universe of critical and creative revolutionary possibility.”–Karen Anijar, Professor Emeritus, Arizona State University

“This volume provides both a much-needed political and economic critique of the dominant neoliberal reforms in the economy and education, and a theoretical and pedagogical path towards a democratic society and schools. I commend the contributors for their intellectual and political courage.”–David Hursh, University of Rochester, and author of High-Stakes Testing and the Decline of Teaching and Learning
