When national security threats influence education policy and politics
from Education Week
How do new foreign policy threats and national security "shocks" contribute to big changes in education policy? And has the answer to that question changed in recent years? "An exploration of spillover effects: evidence from threat-induced education reform" by Joshua Bleiberg, a Ph. D. student at Vanderbilt University's Peabody College, is a new study that examines connections between events with major implications for national security, such as the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and subsequent activity in federal education policymaking such as passage of the No Child Left Behind Act, or and the passage of the original federal education law in 1965.
