Sustaining the new economy work, family, and community in the information age by Martin Carnoy( )
22 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and Spanish and held by 1,720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Sustaining the New Economy explores the growing tension between the requirements of employers for a flexible work force and the ability of parents and communities to nurture their children and provide for their health, welfare, and education. Global competition and the spread of information technology are forcing businesses to engage in rapid, world-wide production changes, customized marketing, and just-in-time delivery. They are reorganizing work around decentralized management, work differentiation, and short-term and part-time employment. Increasingly, workers must be able to move across firms and even across types of work, as jobs get redefined."--Jacket

All else equal : are public and private schools different? by Luis Benveniste( Book )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[Authors conclude] that there's very little difference between public schools and their nearby private counterparts. Inner-city private schools, most of which are Catholic, suffer from the same problems neighboring public schools have, including large class sizes, unqualified teachers, outdated curricula, lack of parental involvement, and stressful family and community circumstances.--From publisher description
Faded dreams : the politics and economics of race in America by Martin Carnoy( Book )
14 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 796 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Faded Dreams paints a new picture of why racial inequality changes in America - one that challenges existing explanations by putting politics at center stage. The author argues that blacks began to catch up economically with whites mainly when government policy makers, under political pressure by blacks and backed by an important segment of the white community, pushed for greater economic equality. Similarly, the greatest obstacles to black gains in other periods have been government policies. Policy makers usually assumed away the race problem or used it against blacks and whites for political purposes, legitimating existing inequality and often making it worse. Through a systematic analysis of fifty years of data on income, education, and the kinds of jobs blacks and whites hold, Faded Dreams makes a powerful case that it takes active government to undo wage and job discrimination and to improve the education and living conditions of disadvantaged black youth

Through a comparative analysis of educational theory and practice, this analytic overview illuminates the larger economic and political changes occurring in five peripheral countries--China, Cuba, Tanzania, Mozambique, and Nicaragua--commonly viewed as in transition to socialism. Current political patterns and leadership in these countries have emerged in the context of predominantly agricultural, industrially underdeveloped economies. Each state has played a major role in social transformation, relying on the educational system to train, educate, and socialize its future citizens. Discussi
University expansion in a changing global economy triumph of the BRICs? by Martin Carnoy( )

This is a study of higher education expansion and its changing quality in the world's four largest developing economies - Brazil, Russia, India, and China - known as the BRIC countries. These four economies are already important players globally, but by mid-century, they are likely to be economic powerhouses. The purpose of this book is to understand the large, rapid transformation of universities in these economies as a way to judge the potential each of these economies has for future development
Decentralization and school improvement : can we fulfill the promise? by New Brunswick, NJ Consortium for Policy Research in Education( Book )
6 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Do decentralization reforms hold real promise for American education? Is there a relationship between the structure of the system and its performance? What can we learn about decentralization from history? from other industries? from other public sectors? from other countries? And what risks does decentralization entail?" "In this book, eight distinguished contributors examine these and other questions related to the likely effects of decentralizing school governance on educational practice. Drawing on theoretical models, case studies, and comparative analyses of other sectors and countries, the authors argue that governance reforms are likely to have little impact on what actually happens in schools. They explain the cyclical and reactionary nature of decentralization debates and show how they are endemic to modern society. And they tell why decentralized structural arrangements alone are unlikely to establish conditions necessary for general improvement in educational practice." "Educational researchers, administrators, and policymakers will learn how linking decentralization reforms with higher performance demands, more directed technical demands, and clearer accountability systems can make important and lasting contributions to improving education. Sponsored by the Consortium for Policy Research in Education."--Jacket
