"High levels of cynicism about politics, fuelled by a lack of understanding of the real dynamics of policy and the political process, are dangerous to democracy. So argues Benjamin Levin in Governing Education. With this book, Levin seeks to improve public understanding of the way government works, especially with regard to education policy." "Based on his experience as Manitoba's deputy minister of education from 1999 to 2002, Levin offers an insider's account of the events and conditions that governed Manitoba's education policy as a way of illustrating the larger dynamics of the political process. He demonstrates how the actions of governments are rooted in diverse political demands, and, looking at the current state of education and education policy in Canada, comments on its strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities." "Levin combines enlightened analysis with stories of real events told by participants, providing an in-depth exploration of government in action. This study will appeal to readers interested in education, political science, and public administration."--Jacket.
