Building the Federal Schoolhouse

Localism and the American Education State

Douglas S. Reed

  • Pioneers the idea of the 'education state': the notion that federal reform efforts have created a hybrid structure that blends local, state and federal actors into a new state entity that is mutually responsible for the education of children in the U.S.
  • Explores the notion that local political regimes are the limiting condition of the efficacy of federal-level U.S. reform
  • Builds on the historical primacy of localism in U.S. education and examines how the capacity and responsibility of 'operational localism' in the U.S. has played a central role in the construction of the education state
