The Politics of Public Education: Reform Ideas and Issues

Helen M. Gunter


At a time when public education and reform agendas are changing the way we approach education, this book critically examines the key issues facing the public with implications for education policy makers, professionals and researchers. Drawing on empirical evidence gathered over 20 years, the book confronts current issues about social justice and segregation. The book uses Arendtian ideas to help the reader to ‘think politically’ about education and how and why public services education can be reimagined for the future.

Keywords: public education, reform agenda, education, social justice, school segregation, public services education
