Molnar's study shows how marketing and marketing logic increasingly shape school practice and policy. He traces the rise of commercial activity in American schools since the landmark A Nation at Risk report, whose policy trajectory created new opportunities for inroads by private corporations into public schools. Molnar (education, Arizona State U., Tempe) tracks trends from the marketing of unhealthy foods to the expansion of the for-profit education management industry, and outlines their detrimental effects on the historic mission of public education in America.
