The Social Justice Implications of Privatisation in Education Governance Frameworks: A Relational Account
Robertson, Susan L.; Dale, Roger
Oxford Review of Education, v39 n4 p426-445 2013
This paper explores the social justice implications of two, "linked", governance developments which have been instrumental in reshaping many education systems throughout the world: the "privatising" and "globalising" of education (Klees, Stromquist, & Samoff, 2012). We argue that such education governance innovations demand an explicit engagement with social justice theories, both in themselves, and as offering an opportunity to address issues of social justice that go beyond the re/distribution of education inputs and outputs, important though these are, and which take account of the political and accountability issues raised by globalising of education governance activity. To do this we draw upon Iris Marion Young's concept of "the basic structure" and her "social connection model" of responsibility (Young, 2006a,b) to develop a relational account of justice in education governance frameworks.
