Resisting Neoliberal Schooling: Dismantling the Rubricization and Corporatization of Higher Education, edited by award-winning author and professor Anthony J. Nocella II, is the first book that critiques the use of rubrics in assessment and evaluation within education and the effects of the rubric as a tool for social and intellectual control. This powerful theoretical intervention goes beyond the most dangerous academic repressive theory, standardization, and critically interrogates the next step in academic control, rubricization. Nocella, a public intellectual on the school-to-prison pipeline and academic repression, gathers together brilliant scholars from around the world to write on the mass normalization, assimilation, homogenization, and commodification of knowledge learning, creation, and analysis. The most important theme of this book is the challenging, resisting, and explaining of neoliberalism in education. This thought-provoking and engaging anthology has writings by Clifton Sanders, Roderic Land, Ashley Cox, Lauralea Edwards, Anthony J. Nocella II, David Robles, Emily Thompson, Elisa Stone, Lea Lani Kinikini, Elizabeth Vasileva, Will Boisseau, Adalberto Aguirre, Jr., Rubén Martinez, Richard Van Heertum, Victor M. Mendoza, Laura Schleifer, Riley Clare Valentine, Steve Gennaro, Doug Kellner, Frank A. Fear, Caroline K. Kaltefleiter, David Bokovoy, Anthony J. Nocella, and Paul R. Carr.
