Description

Just in time for the 2008 elections, ""The Seduction of Common Sense"" offers a powerful examination of current education policy initiatives as framed by the rhetoric of the political Right and the political Left. Critical of both sides, Kumashiro first provides a searching look at the Right and shows why it has succeeded so well in winning the debate about the purposes and possibilities of education. Here he brilliantly illuminates how the Right uses particular ""frames"" - appeals to conservative notions of the traditional family, free enterprise, goodness, and fear - to shape the public's common sense ideas about schooling and build support for its attacks on public education and social justice reforms.
