The comparative politics of education: teachers unions and education systems across the world Terry Moe.

"Public education is critically important to the human capital, social well-being, and economic prosperity of nations. It is also an intensely political realm of public policy that is heavily shaped by power and special interests. Yet political scientists rarely study education, and education researchers rarely study politics. This volume attempts to change that by promoting the development of a coherent, thriving field on the comparative politics of education. As an opening wedge, the authors carry out an 11-nation comparative study of the political role of teachers unions, showing that as education systems everywhere became institutionalized, teachers unions pursued their interests by becoming well-organized, politically active, highly influential - and during the modern era, the main opponents of neoliberal reform. Across diverse nations, the commonalities are striking. The challenge going forward is to expand on this study's scope, theory, and evidence to bring education into the heart of comparative politics"--

Education and technology : key issues and debates
Selwyn, Neil, author
New York, NY : Bloomsbury Academic, an imprint of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2017
1. What Do We Mean by 'Education' and 'Technology'? -- 2. Making Sense of Technology and Education Change -- 3. A Short History of Education and Technology -- 4. Technology and Learning -- 5. Technology and Teachers -- 6. Technology and Education Institutions -- 7. Technology and the Individualization of Education -- 8. Education and Technology: Where Now?

"Will technology replace the school and university? Will technology replace the teacher? What do we really know about technology and learning? Does technology make education more individualized? What does the future hold for technology and education? What can be learnt from the history of technology use in education? In a thoroughly revised edition of this successful book, Neil Selwyn takes a critical look at some of the major current debates and controversies concerning digital technologies and education. Focusing on the social as well as the technical aspects of these issues, Selwyn addresses fundamental but often unvoiced questions about education and technology. Over the course of eight chapters, the book gives careful thought to the people, practices, processes and structures behind the rapidly increasing use of technologies in education, with an emphasis on the implications of digital technologies for individuals and institutions. The book focuses attention on the connections between recent technology developments and broader changes in education practice, education policy and education theory over the past 10 years. It also challenges us to reflect on future directions and controversies for education in the (post)digital age. Expanded study questions, annotated further reading and a new glossary of key terms are included to support readers. An updated companion website links to case study examples, two bonus chapters and much more for students and lecturers."--

The work and lives of teachers : a global perspective
Cohen, Rosetta Marantz, author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Machine generated contents note: Teaching on Earth: introduction; 1. Finland: autonomy and respect Annukka Suonio; 2. Taiwan: tradition and change Feng-juan Kuo; 3. Greece: a week of austerity Vasiliki Michailidou; 4. Azerbaijan: teaching in the shadow of war Gulnaz Haciyeva; 5. France: defending rigor Laurence Manfrini; 6. Chile: revolution and resignation Mauricio Ramirez; 7. America: diversity and a passion for leadership Bonnie Fineman; 8. The teacher in comparative perspective; 9. Teachers in their own words.

"The Work and Lives of Teachers offers a simple but original argument: that the cultural attitudes toward the teaching profession measurably influence how students perform. Cohen uses both ethnographic portraits and personal accounts from thirteen teachers - from Finland, Taiwan, Greece, Azerbaijan, France, Chile, South Africa, Siberia, Brazil, Romania, Philippines, Norway and the United States - to explore the meaning and value of teaching worldwide. This study includes the ways in which teachers in these countries are educated, recruited, compensated, and perceived by parents, students, administrators, and the culture at large. Teachers' voices, so rarely heard in international educational studies, are front and center here, highlighting the daily work in the classroom and the pleasures and struggles of engaging in the teaching profession in 2016. The lesson, briefly stated, is that societies are only as good as the people who teach in them"--

The rise of the research university : a sourcebook
edited by Louis Menand, Paul Reitter, and Chad Wellmon
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2017
The modern research university is a global institution with a rich history that stretches into an ivy-laden past, but for as much as we think we know about that past, most of the writings that have recorded it are scattered across many archives and, in many cases, have yet to be translated into English. With this book, Paul Reitter, Chad Wellmon, and Louis Menand bring a wealth of these important texts together, assembling a fascinating collection of primary sources many translated into English for the first time that outline what would become the university as we know it. The editors focus on the development of American universities such as Cornell, Johns Hopkins, Harvard, and the Universities of Chicago, California, and Michigan. Looking to Germany, they translate a number of seminal sources that formulate the shape and purpose of the university and place them next to hard-to-find English-language texts that took the German university as their inspiration, one that they creatively adapted, often against stiff resistance. Enriching these texts with short but insightful essays that contextualize their importance, the editors offer an accessible portrait of the early research university, one that provides invaluable insights not only into the historical development of higher learning but also its role in modern society.

Language at the speed of sight : how we read, why so many can't, and what can be done about it
Seidenberg, Mark S., author
New York : Basic Books, an imprint of Perseus Books, a division of PBG Publishing, LLC, a subsidiary of Hachette Book Group, Inc., [2017]
Reading, writing, and speech. The problem and the paradox ; Visible language ; Writing: it's all Mesopotamian cuneiform to me -- How we read. The eyes have it ; F u cn rd ths, u cn gt a gd jb n rdng rsch ; Becoming a reader ; Reading: the eternal triangle ; Dyslexia and its discontents ; Brain bases of reading -- The educational challenges. How well does America read? ; The two cultures of science and education ; Reading the future.

Over half of our children read at a basic level and few become highly proficient. Many American children and adults are not functionally literate, with serious consequences. Poor readers are more likely to drop out of the educational system and as adults are unable to fully participate in the workforce, adequately manage their own health care, or advance their children's education. In this book, cognitive scientist Mark Seidenberg reveals the underexplored science of reading, which spans cognitive science, neurobiology, and linguistics. As Seidenberg shows, the disconnect between science and education is a major factor in America's chronic underachievement. How we teach reading places many children at risk of failure, discriminates against poorer kids, and discourages even those who could have become more successful readers. Children aren't taught basic print skills because educators cling to the disproved theory that good readers guess the words in texts, a strategy that encourages skimming instead of close reading. Interventions for children with reading disabilities are delayed because parents are mistakenly told their kids will catch up if they work harder. Learning to read is more difficult for children who speak a minority dialect in the home, but that is not reflected in classroom practices. By building on science's insights, we can improve how our children read, and take real steps toward solving the inequality that illiteracy breeds. Both an expert look at our relationship with the written word and a rousing call to action, Language at the Speed of Sight is essential for parents, educators, policy makers, and all others who want to understand why so many fail to read, and how to change that.--Adapted from dust jacket.

Anti-colonial texts from Central American student movements 1929-1983
edited by Heather Vrana
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press [2017]
"Bridging a half-century of student protest from 1929 to 1983, this source reader contains more than sixty texts from Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, El Salvador and Costa Rica, including editorials, speeches, manifestos, letters and pamphlets. Available for the first time in English, these rich texts help scholars and popular audiences alike to rethink their preconceptions of student protest and revolution. The texts also illuminate key issues confronting social movements today: global capitalism, dispossession, privatisation, development and state violence"--Cover page 4.

The politics of African-American education : representation, partisanship, and educational equity
Meier, Kenneth J., 1950- author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2017
1. Representation, partisanship, and equality in education -- 2. Two myths: separate but equal and nonpartisan education -- 3. The politics of African-American school board representation: partisanship, structure, and resources -- 4. Race and the street level bureaucrats: with a little help from my friends -- 5. Partisanship, teacher representation, and access to education opportunities -- 6. Race, politics, and student learning -- 7. Can you beat the ovarian lottery?

"Based on the 1,800 largest school districts in the United States over a decade, The Politics of African-American Education documents the status of African-American education and the major role that partisanship plays. The book brings together the most comprehensive database on minority education to date that centers around three arguments. First, partisanship permeates African-American education; it affects who is elected to the school board, the racial composition of school administrators and teachers, and the access of African-American students to quality education. Second, African-American representation matters. The effectiveness of African-American representation, however, is enhanced in Democratic districts while representation in Republican districts has little influence. Third, political structures matter, but they are not determinative. Two different structures - election rules and the independent school district - create the rules of the game in US education politics and policy but do not limit others from using those rules to change the outcome"--
