Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines the changing nature of schools and schooling with special emphasis on the ways in which policy influences university teacher preparation. Policy regime frameworks are ideological drivers that construct, delimit, and direct school change. The chapter traces influences that have shaped the current market-based system of education in the United States, addressing landmark cases such as Brown v. Board of Education, the report A Nation at Risk, and the ongoing standards and accountability movement. The chapter concludes by locating the role of teachers within the neoliberal pressures associated with contemporary education reform.

Keywords: music teacher professionalism, school change, neoliberalism and education, music teacher education, school quality
