This comprehensive handbook organizes the latest research and theory on the most important topics within the field of politics of education. Building on theories of school governance, control, and political behavior, this volume helps leaders understand issues in resource allocation, program availability, and how to increase student achievement. Well-known scholars in the fields of school leadership, politics, policy, law, finance, and reform examine the macro-level structural and institutional backdrop to our educational system, the micro-level political behaviors and cultural influences operating within schools, and the ideological and philosophical positions that frame discussions of educational equity and excellence. Detailed discussions of key topics touch upon important themes in educational politics, including the goals of the U.S. political system toward equity and opportunity, the means and resources for reaching these goals, and the political behaviors and compromises that seek to mitigate ideological differences and conflicts of interest. Chapter authors also provide suggestions for improving the political behaviors of key educational groups and individuals with the hope that an understanding of political goals, governance processes, and policy outcomes may contribute to ongoing school reform.
