The Politics of Public Education

Helen M. Gunter

Policy Press

This chapter provides an overview of the book's main themes. This book presents a new conceptualisation, so-called Knowledgeable Polities, and identifies and deploys the Education Policy Knowledgeable Polity as the methodological means of examining the dynamics of the state, people, practices, ideologies and networks. Such an approach allows the study to consider the conditions for rethinking politically ongoing ‘reforms’ of education. The book provides access to ideas, evidence, and practices vital for the re-politicisation of public services education. By engaging with Hannah Arendt as a ‘discussion partner’, it explores a range of ideas and arguments.

Keywords:   Hannah Arendt, knowledgeable polities, education policy, knowledgeable polity, public education, education reform, public services education
