Editorial Reviews

"Although discussion of the politics of the school curriculum is now much more common than it was twenty-five years ago, Michael Apple's "Ideology and Curriculum remains one of the most compelling and insightful accounts of how ideology actually works in and through the overt and hidden curricula of schooling and school reform."-Geoff Whitty, Director, Institute of Education, University of London "This third edition of "Ideology and Curriculum probes the complicated connections between and among 'legitimate' knowledge, teaching, and power, serving to place front and center issues related to schools as social organizations, as well as the practices of teachers, youth, and parents across social class, race, and ethnicity. This extraordinary new edition is a must-read for anyone interested in the way schools work."-Lois Weis, Professor, The University at Buffalo, State University of New York "Michael Apple's "Ideology and Curriculum has withstood the test of relevance and time. This new edition will serve as a clarion call to the new cadres of critical scholars who find contemporary scholarship on schooling wanting and the conservative direction of contemporary educational and public policy intolerable."-Cameron McCarthy, Research Professor and University Scholar, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
