Who Will Educate the Educators? Critical Pedagogy in the Age of Globalization
Education Faculty Books and Book Chapters

"The globalization of capital and its profane partnership with neoliberal politics pose unique and urgent challenges to today's progressive educators. The central questions that were raised by George Counts in the 1930s and by Henry Giroux in the 1980s need to be raised again: Dare schools build a new social order? What purpose do schools serve and in whose interest? … The time could not be more ripe for exploring how the business of schooling is linked to the 'businessification' and the environmental destruction of the wider society, for unraveling how the idea of citizenship has been sutured to a fascist aesthetics, and for demanding how education can be transformed in the interests of social justice."
