Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines how federal and state governments have assumed ever-greater control over the education process since the 1960s.

State and national policymakers are increasingly important in shaping the nature, scope, and direction of education initiatives, resulting in the erosion of local control. The Rising State weaves together leading national experts’ perspectives that focus on equity, comparative differences in state educational policies, agenda setting, and the nationalization of education policy. The contributors provide policymakers, teachers, administrators, parents, and the general public with an opportunity and means to understand the success and failure of the growth of state power and centralization of control of education in the United States and offer forecasts for future developments.

Bonnie C. Fusarelli is Assistant Professor of Education at North Carolina State University. Bruce S. Cooper is Professor of Education Leadership and Policy at Fordham University and the author and editor of many books, including Better Policies, Better Schools: Theories and Applications, coedited with Lance D. Fusarelli and E. Vance Randall.
