Fowler, Frances C.


Written by a leading name in the area of educational policy, the third edition of this comprehensive text once again encourages future educational leaders to be proactive rather than reactive, and equips them with an understanding of educational policy and the important political theories upon which it is based. Coverage not only addresses theory, analysis, development, and implementation of educational policy, but also explores the reasons for change in educational policy, ways to track its evolution, and techniques for influencing its ultimate destination. Finally, it wraps up with a look at the history of educational policy that helps put everything that has come before into an understandable context. Economic information (ch. 3) has been updatedincorporating the economic changes resulting both from the expected downturn of the business cycle and from the impact of the war in Iraq. Up-to-date news stories for analysis and case studies have been provided.All stories for analysis have been updated and relate not only to the major concepts of the chapter while addressing current issues such as charter schools, bilingual education, high-stakes testing, and the implementation of theNo Child Left Behind Act. Implementation chapter has been expanded and updated-presenting the new research on implementers as learners as well as new research on the challenges of scaling programs up from one or a few sites to many. Education Policy in the United States: Retrospective and Prospective (Ch. 12) has been significantly revisedto includea lengthy discussion of theNo Child Left Behind Actas well as suggestions about how education leaders can exercise their influence to shape the law.
