Reviews

Informed by her own experiences in the classroom, Erickson shares her outrage over the disparities between the haves and the rest with a clear-eyed analysis. A counterweight to reformers whose anti-union, corporatization of education threatens the very tenets of our democratic society. Annette Fuentes, journalist and author of "Lockdown High" Megan Erickson knows the classroom is not a solvent for class society. But she remembers that it can be about something more than class reproduction. There may be no more trustworthy a guide to schooling in capitalist America than this book. Corey Robin, journalist and author of "The Reactionary Mind" and "The History of a Political Idea " Cogently written and with a far-ranging, sharp analysis. Anyone who wants to understand the relationship between educational inequality and the privatization of public education should read this book! Wayne Au, editor of "Rethinking Schools" and author of "Unequal By Design" Megan Erickson deftly skewers neoliberal myths about education and child-rearing in this must-read book, which will be richly informative even to readers who are already critical of the status quo. Erickson is one of the most indispensable thinkers on this subject. Liza Featherstone, journalist and author of "Selling Women Short" and "Students Against Sweatshops" "The author's extensive research makes for a compelling case and a must-read book." H. J. Bultinck, Northeastern Illinois University "Class War is intentionally concise, getting straight to the point in four chapters that, though exhaustively sourced, make for a quick and accessible read. The book delves deep into the ideological underpinnings of the education system, delivering a critique that's relevant far beyond the school walls." - Sarah Grey, Socialism and Democracy
