From the back cover: "American schools are undergoing a dramatic shift to the right, as internationally acclaimed educator Michael Apple argues eloquently in Educating the 'Right' Way. Apple uncovers the roots of this conservative swing and sheds light on the dramatic changes they are causing in our schools. He also dissects the plans of this coalition and shows how these Rightist reforms pose a threat to the democracy of public education."

A shorter version of Professor Apple’s chapter on home schooling was published as Away with All Teachers: The Cultural Politics of Home Schooling (2000), International Studies in the Sociology of Education, 10 (1).
