What do we really want from schools? Only everything, in all its contradictions. Most of all, we want access and opportunity for all children—but all possible advantages for our own. So argues historian David Labaree in this provocative look at the way “this archetype of dysfunction works so well at what we want it to do even as it evades what we explicitly ask it to do.”
One of the differences in conservative thought and liberal thought is what

In order for schooling to become relevant in the global age, the currently used curricula, teaching strategies, and school structures need to be discarded; and more important, the way we think about schools and schooling must change. In essence, a distinctly different model of schooling needs to be conceptualized and implemented across the U.S. In Making Schooling Relevant for the Global Age, Nordgren offers such a model based, in part, on schooling he observed in Sweden; one that is supported by pertinent social, economic, and educational research.
