Serving the Public Interest through Educational Evaluation

This is a pre-publication version of a chapter that analyzes the nature of educational evaluation in a global, neo-liberalist world. The chapter includes some advice to evaluators on how to take back evaluation to serve democratic values, that is, the inclusion of all stakeholders (especially those most often shut out) and open deliberation about what it means for education and schooling to be good or bad.

This chapter will appear in Ryan & Cousins’ edited International Handbook of Educational Evaluation to be published by Sage.
