Have a little faith : religion, democracy, and the American public school
Justice, Benjamin, 1971- author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2016
Religion and education: a democratic perspective -- The founding fathers, religion, and education -- Religion and the origins of public education -- Religion and public education in the era of progress -- Religion and public education since 1960 -- Finding faith in democracy: three cases.

It isn't just in recent arguments over the teaching of intelligent design or reciting the pledge of allegiance that religion and education have butted heads: since their beginnings nearly two centuries ago, public schools have been embroiled in heated controversies over religion's place in the education system of a pluralistic nation. In this book, Benjamin Justice and Colin Macleod take up this rich and significant history of conflict with renewed clarity and astonishing breadth. Moving from the American Revolution to the present from the common schools of the nineteenth century to the charter schools of the twenty-first they offer one of the most comprehensive assessments of religion and education in America that has ever been published. From Bible readings and school prayer to teaching evolution and cultivating religious tolerance, Justice and Macleod consider the key issues and colorful characters that have shaped the way American schools have attempted to negotiate religious pluralism in a politically legitimate fashion.

Black males and racism : improving the schooling and life chances of African Americans
Fitzgerald, Terence D., author
London : Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2016
The state of our education -- Ideological road mapping : the foundations of oppression -- The role of denial and the controlling image -- The historical role of social control in education -- The new mechanisms of social control in education -- Perception of the black male and its consequences in education -- Gender and discrimination in education -- Fighting for their future : constructing a counternarrative -- Conclusions.

Behind the twenty-first-century curtain of "colorblind" public sentiment lies an often-ignored reality shared by many African American males--racism continues to thrive and often drastically affects their lives. Fitzgerald draws on his extensive interviews of black males to reveal the experiences of racism that continue in public schools and in American higher education. Using empirical data and the methods of sociological research, Fitzgerald analyzes how the persistent effects of white supremacy in education have threatened the psychological and economic welfare of black males. The effects often last well into adulthood. Unraveling the subtle and overt mechanisms of institutional social control leads Fitzgerald to proposals to reduce structural racism and improve the lives of African American youth -- page 4 of cover.

"Keep the damned women out" : the struggle for coeducation
Malkiel, Nancy Weiss, author
Princeton : Princeton University Press, [2016]
Setting the stage: the turbulent 1960s -- The Ivy League : Harvard, Yale, and Princeton -- The seven sisters : Vassar, Smith, and Wellesley -- Revisiting the Ivies : Dartmouth -- The United Kingdom : Cambridge and Oxford -- Taking stock.

"As the tumultuous decade of the 1960s ended, a number of very traditional, very conservative, highly prestigious colleges and universities in the United States and the United Kingdom decided to go coed, seemingly all at once, in a remarkably brief span of time. Coeducation met with fierce resistance. As one alumnus put it in a letter to his alma mater, "Keep the damned women out." Focusing on the complexities of institutional decision making, this book tells the story of this momentous era in higher education--revealing how coeducation was achieved not by organized efforts of women activists, but through strategic decisions made by powerful men. In America, Ivy League schools like Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Dartmouth began to admit women; in Britain, several of the men's colleges at Cambridge and Oxford did the same. What prompted such fundamental change? How was coeducation accomplished in the face of such strong opposition? How well was it implemented? Nancy Weiss Malkiel explains that elite institutions embarked on coeducation not as a moral imperative but as a self-interest means of maintaining a first-rate applicant pool. She explores the challenges of planning for the academic and non-academic lives of newly admitted women, and shows how, with the exception of Mary Ingraham Bunting at Radcliffe, every decision maker leading the charge for coeducation was male. Drawing on unprecedented archival research, [this book] is a breathtaking work of scholarship that is certain to be the definitive book on the subject."--Book jacket.

Blueprint for counter education : expanded reprint
Maurice Stein and Larry Miller ; designed by Marshall Henrichs ; editor for the revised edition, Eugenia Bell
New York, NY : Inventory Press, LLC, 2016
"Blueprint for counter education is one of the defining (but neglected) works of radical pedagogy of the Vietnam War era. Originally published in 1970 and integrated into the design of the Critical Studies curriculum at CalArts, the book was accompanied by large graphic posters that could serve as a portable learning environment for a new process-based model of education, and a bibliography and checklist that map patterns and relationships between radical thought and artistic practices--from the avant-gardes to postmodernism--with Marcuse and McLuhan serving as points of anchorage. -- Accompanying this new facsimile edition of the book, posters, and slipcase is a 64-page booklet featuring a conversation with the original Blueprint authors Maurice Stein, Larry Miller, and designer Marshall Henrichs, as well as essays from Jeffrey Schnapp, Paul Cronin, and notes on the design by Adam Michaels of Project Projects"--Publisher's website.
