This text locates a rising culture of militarism found not only in popular culture, civil society and US foreign policy but also in educational policy and practices. Considering the rise of school security apparatus, accountability and standardsMoreThis text locates a rising culture of militarism found not only in popular culture, civil society and US foreign policy but also in educational policy and practices.

Considering the rise of school security apparatus, accountability and standards movements, privatization and commercialization, this book highlights the intersections between militarization and corporatization. This volume brings together scholars in education to explore and challenge the ways that the imperatives of corporate globalization are educating citizens through curriculum, policy and popular culture in the virtues of authoritarianism, while turning some schools into boardrooms and others into barracks and prisons.

With the shadow of the No Child Left Behind Act descending, the text points to the need for citizens to become more actively involved in leading schools, teachers and children out of this educational Dark Age.
