  • Product Description
 

In Public Education and the Politics of Social Justice, educator Marilynne Waithman details a retrospective case-study directed toward educational leaders, practitioners, and policy writers. The case-study explores topics that influence students’ learning and academic achievement within the public education system in general and inner-city schools in particular. The topics include the application of integrated social- justice principles, adoption of school-choice policies, and the development of full-service year- round schooling. The study reports on the negative consequences of the implementation of school-choice and open-boundary policies on an inner-city school and explores the structural and discursive strategies implemented to address these outcomes. This book is an excellent example of scholar-practitioner research. It provides the reader with practical strategies for application in inner-city and community schools. It concludes with recommendations to address the author’s concerns around the relationship between social-justice principles and education in general and the unforeseen consequences of open-boundary and school- choice policies in particular. A worthwhile read!
