This ground-breaking book analyzes contemporary education discourse in the light of curriculum politics and popular culture. The approach is lively, while at the same time insightful. The book is an academic page-turner. Provocative and groundbreaking, this book opens up a significant line of inquiry for mathematics education-an important contribution to the field. - Eugene F. Provenzo J. University of Miami.

Appelbaum's juxtaposition of popular culture, public debate and professional practice enables an examination of the production and mediation of "common sense" distinctions between school mathematics and the world outside of schools.

This groundbreaking book analyzes contemporary education discourse in the light of curriculum politics and popular culture, using sources ranging from academic scholarship to popular magazines, music video, film and television game shows.

Abstract: Recent educational discourse is analyzed, using sources drawn from academic literature in education, canonical literature of professional associations, newspapers and popular magazines, and works of mass culture, including television programs and films. Mathematics education is used as an 'extreme case', since mathematics is the discipline most easily accepted as separable from politics, ethics or the social construction of knowledge. The juxtaposition of popular culture, public discourse and professional practice enables an examination of the production and mediation (and hence the ideological function) of such inappropriate distinctions.

This groundbreaking book analyzes contemporary education discourse in the light of curriculum politics and popular culture, using sources ranging from academic scholarship to popular magazines, music video, film and television game shows. Mathematics is used as an “extreme case,” since it is a discipline so easily accepted as separable from politics, ethics or the social construction of knowledge. Appelbaum’s juxtaposition of popular culture, public debate and professional practice enables an examination of the production and mediation of “common sense” distinctions between school mathematics and the world outside of schools. Terrain ordinarily displaced or excluded by traditional education literature becomes the pendulum for a new conversation which merges research and practice while discarding pre-conceived categories of understandingThe book also serves as an entertaining introduction to emerging theories in cultural studies, progressively illustrating the uses of discourse analysis for comprehending ideology, the implications of power/knowledge links, professional practice as a technology of power, and curriculum as at once commodities and cultural resources. In this way, Appelbaum effectively reveals a direction for teachers, students and researchers to cooperatively form a community attentive to the politics of curriculum and popular culture.
