Schooling, Childhood, and Bureaucracy uses sociological explanations to describe how the school system in the United States developed, and why reform is a constant. The American public school system is elemental to the reproduction of society's ideals. Such ideals in turn affect how relationships between teachers, parents, children, schools, and the state develop. Most notably, this results in chronic demands for reform when the high ideals for individual children in terms of "school success," defined as test scores, student behavior, equity, and so forth, are inevitably never quite achieved. The reasons why are embedded in a tension between bureaucracy, and the love individual parents have for individual children. In exploring the relationship between bureaucratic schooling and the individual child, this book describes the persistence of educational inequality, child development, and the nature of bureaucracy. The conclusions point out how education bureaucracies frame both schooling and childhood as they relentlessly seek to create ever more perfect children.

This inspiring story of a post-Katrina classroom “reminds us all that heroes hold small hands on field trips, clean paint brushes, and sing morning songs” (Phillip Done, author of 32 Third Graders and One Class Bunny: Life Lessons from Teaching). As floodwaters from Hurricane Katrina surged at their heels, those fleeing New Orleans had their minds more on safety than on whether their children would be missing school. But when a group of evacuee parents who settled in New Iberia, Louisiana, realized they would not be returning home quickly, they set about reconstructing their families’ lives. And so they turned to beloved New Orleans schoolteacher Paul Reynaud, whose fierce determination and unwavering spirit transformed an abandoned office into a one-room schoolhouse. This is the story of Sugarcane Academy: twenty-five students, their devoted parents, an inspiring teacher, and the boundless power of learning. “This wonderful memoir manages to do what a flood of news-reporting could not: see the tragedy of Katrina through the eyes of children. The story of the Sugarcane Academy, an improvised one-room school in a sugarcane parish in south Louisiana, will be one of the lasting books of our tragedy.” —Andrei Codrescu, author of New Orleans, Mon Amour: Twenty Years of Writings from the City
