"¡No Lucro!"?…?from Protest Catch Cry to Presidential Policy: Is This the Beginning of the End of the Chilean Neoliberal Model of Education?
Journal of Educational Administration and History, v47 n2 p193-208 2015
This paper surveys the delivery of school education in Chile over the last half-century. It focuses on evidence provided by recent academic studies on the impact of neoliberal education policies introduced by the military regime in the 1980s, and continued by successive democratic governments. It offers insights into recent popular critiques of the neoliberal model, as reported in the Chilean press, and reflected by significant popular support for student protest movements demanding the end of for-profit schools, and the revitalisation of the public school system--encapsulated in the protesters' catch cry of "¡No lucro!" It considers possible consequences of the adoption, as policy, of that catch cry, by the recently elected Bachelet government.
