A UW-Green Bay professor argues that linking education to economic well-being was not politically inevitable. Jon Shelton joins us on A Public Affair to discus his forth coming book The Education Myth: How Human Capital Trumped Social Democracy.
He talks with substitute host Nada Elmikashfi about the myth, American Democracy, and human capitol.
Jon Shelton is Associate Professor of Democracy and Justice Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. He is the author of Teacher Strike!Public Education and the Making of a New American Political Order, which was the winner of the International Standing Conference of the History of Education’s First Book Award in 2018.
