In this fully updated edition of The Education Debate, Stephen J. Ball guides us through a flood of government initiatives and policies concerning education over the past twenty years, showing how these policy interventions have changed the landscape and meaning of education, turned children into learners and parents into consumers, and played their part in the reformation of contemporary governance. Analyzing current policies and ideas around education from a sociological approach, he addresses issues of class, choice, globalization, race, and citizenship. The book will interest student teachers, other students of politics and social policy courses, and the general reader who wants to go beyond the simplistic analyses of newspapers.

Stephen J. Ball is Karl Mannheim Professor of the Sociology of Education at the Institute of Education at the University of London.Review :
“The Education Debate is one of the clearest and most insightful analyses of education policy I have ever read. In this new edition, Stephen Ball once again documents why his work is essential for our understanding of educational politics and processes. The book can serve as a model for how one can write about these complex issues.” (Michael W. Apple, University of Wisconsin–Madison)
"The Education Debate is a tour de force not only for its authority and penetration but also . . . its accessibility."
(Higher Education Review)
"Insightful and wholly accessible and contributes to broader debates about education policy, initiatives, and economic imperatives found across public services." (Critical Social Policy)
"His introduction to key concepts should be required reading both for those engaged in policy making processes and those seeking to influence change in education."
"Stephen Ball provides the intellectual resources for understanding how education policy is produced, what it seeks to do and what its effects are. Theoretically and empirically adroit, it is essential reading for all those needing to understand education policy and politics." (Bob Lingard, University of Edinburgh)
