The Commodification of Education
Karpov, A. O.
Russian Education and Society, v55 n5 p75-90 May 2013
This critique of the interpretation of education exclusively in terms of the system of commodity relations explores the general cultural role of education and its "producing" function from the standpoint of the growth of the culture of knowledge. It looks at the position taken by foreign specialists that sheds light on the negative consequences of the "commodification" of education.
