Summary

Urban education is changing everyday in powerful ways. The old paradigms describing urban education are being eclipsed by new realities such as global neoliberal forces, a new articulation of race and class, and a politics of fear. These factors and more set the stage for Pauline Lipman's insightful analysis of the powerful relationship between education policy and the neoliberal economic and political processes that are reshaping cities in the United States and around the globe.Using Chicago as a case study of the interconnectedness between neoliberal urban policies on housing, economic development, and education, Lipman explores the larger implications on equity, justice, and the restructuring of the city. The book draws on scholarship in critical geography, urban sociology and anthropology, education policy, and critical analyses of race to offer a significant contribution to current arguments about urban schooling and how we think about the relations between neoliberal education reforms and the transformation of cities. By examining why and how these relationships resonate with people's lived experience, Lipman pushes the analysis one step further in hopes of constructing an urban education based on true social justice.
