Download (111Kb) | Preview
The book Battling Corruption in America’s Public Schools by Segal (2004) is well written, easy to read, very interesting and provocative, and offers to the reader a wealth of detailed information of corrupt cases in the system of public schooling as well as an overview of corrupt practices overall. The major contribution of the book is in its description of corruption and unsuccessful actions to prevent it as well as prescriptions that in the author’s opinion may help fight corruption. This makes the book groundbreaking research in the field of educational corruption, and corruption in public secondary education in particular. However, the book cannot be viewed as a revolutionary work. It is explained first of all by the absence of theoretical and methodological contributions to the interdisciplinary field of corruption, as well as by the lack of sophisticated theoretical lenses and frameworks applied in researching the topic. It is obvious that deeper theoretical developments are needed.
