The Great American Education-Industrial Complex examines the structure and nature of national networks and enterprises that seek to influence public education policy in accord with their own goals and objectives. In the past twenty years, significant changes have taken place in the way various interest groups seek to influence policies and practices in public education in the United States. No longer left to the experience and knowledge of educators, American education has become as much the domain of private organizations, corporate entities, and political agents who see it as a market for their ideas, technologies, and ultimately profits. Piccciano and Spring posit that educational technology is the vehicle whereby these separate movements, organizations, and individuals have become integrated in a powerful common entity, and detail how the educational-industrial complex has grown and strengthened its position of influence. This timely, carefully documented, well argued book brings together Piccianoas perspective and expertise in the field of technology and policy issues and Springas in the history and politics of education in a unique critical analysis of the education-industrial complex and its implications for the future.He is also a member ofthe faculty in the graduate program in Education Leadership at Hunter College, the doctoral certificate ... at the City University of New York Graduate Center, and CUNY Online BA Program in Communication and Culture.
