Faculty Book: Anthony Picciano and Joel Spring

Anthony G. Picciano and Joel Spring

The Great American Education-Industrial Complex: Ideology, Technology, and Profit
(Routledge, 2012)

Over 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. Picciano 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. Picciano and Spring serve on the doctoral faculty in urban education.
