Very important reading for any teacher, especially those who teach in urban, aka "diverse", schools.

This book is pretty dense-- a structuralist conception of the influence of the economy and society on education, and he uses a neo-Marxist lens to interpret how knowledge is selected by dominant groups (mostly based on economic and cultural capital) and that, as in any system, the losers are "naturally" selected.

This is the type of book a curriculum work should be. It is filled with challenging theories and ideas that push the limits of educators who have filled their minds with the cliche understandings of the current system. This has the potential to change the way one teaches and understands, but some are critical of this work because of Apple's extreme leftist point of view. Skip this book if you are not open-minded.

Recommends it for: anyone interested in education

the people who need this book, probably won't "get it." and those who do "get it" probably don't need it.

'fraid that might be true about apple, too.

on first reading, i don't get a bunch of it...

the horror.

Apple is passionate and steadfast in his aim of equality and equity within the educational sphere. If you ever hear him speak, this becomes obvious. This work acts as a fulcrum for his other book.

I so enjoyed this read. It is engaging, thought provoking, and critically important to anyone concerned with genuine equity.
