Short Description for Educating the "Right" Way Describes the powerful conservative backlash against what is seen by many as the failing of modern schools. While it is positive to see education at the centre of public debate, this book argues that not all the forces of conservatism have any business telling educators how schools should be run and what our children should be taught.

Full description for Educating the "Right" Way
In this book Apple explores the 'conservative restoration' - the rightward turn of a broad-based coalition that is making successful inroads in determining American and international educational policy. It takes a pragmatic look at what critical educators can do to build alternative coalitions and policies that are more democratic. Apple urges this group to extricate itself from its reliance on the language of possibility in order to employ pragmatic analyses that address the material realities of social power.
