Abstract:

This book is an eye-opening examination of the real world consequences of
the political pressures and influences on teachers today. In particular, it
looks at how the political actions of the conservative right disempower and
control teachers, school districts, parents, and children through an
atmosphere of fear used as a strategy to ensure that schools follow the
conservative political agenda supporting and imposing mandates such as
increased accountability, high stakes testing, and direct intense
direct-instruction phonics programs. The editors and contributors envision
the volume as a voice for an alternative to compliance with unreasonable
mandates-and thus as a message of hope.

"Marketing Fear in America's Public Schools: The Real War on Literacy" is
important reading for teachers; teacher educators; education students;
school administrators and other education professionals; researchers
concerned with literacy, critical theory, pedagogy, and educational policy;
and parents and community activists concerned with the politics of
schooling and school reform. It is will serve well as a text in a range of
courses across the field of education.
