TWO MORE REVIEWS OF ‘MARX AND EDUCATION’ BY JEAN ANYON – PATRICK AINLEY, AND ADAM SANCHEZ

Patrick Ainley reviews Jean Anyon’s ‘Marx and Education’ (Routledge, 2011) in the latest update to the Marx & Philosophy Society Review of Books. See: http://marxandphilosophy.org.uk/reviewofbooks/reviews/2011/366

Adam Sanchez also reviews ‘Marx and Education’ by Jean Anyon in the latest issue (No.78) of International Socialist Review. See Sanchez’s review, Radical education theory 101, at: http://www.isreview.org/issues/78/rev-marxeducation.shtml

In my view, both of these reviews rather skate over, or ignore, many of the glaring faults in Anyon’s book. However, I think as many people as possible should read it; in that way, it might become more apparent regarding what the real tasks are for Marxist educational theory.

The obsession with Samuel Bowles and Herbert Gintis’ Schooling in Capitalist America (1976) continues. Of course, it is a classic work of Marxist educational theory, and continues to be useful. However, I would like to think that Marxists have made some progress in their thinking on education since the seminal work of Bowles and Gintis. See Sarah Knopp’s review, What do schools produce? of the newly-republished classic at: http://www.isreview.org/issues/78/featrev-schooling.shtml
