Terry M. Moe and John E. Chubb’s landmark bestseller, Politics, Markets and America’s Schools, was an early argument for local control of schools. Now, in their thought-provoking new book, Liberating Learning: Technology, Politics, and the Future of American Education, Drs. Moe and Chubb maintain that technology can transform K-12 education in America. They argue that its salutary effects are being blocked by entrenched interests, including teachers’ unions and other bureaucracies with a stake in keeping things as they are. They contend that, although it may take decades, change is already coming, and the power of the big interests won’t last.
