Curriculum Testing on the Persistent Fringes: Neoliberal Policy and the New Regime of Title I High School Reform
Sturges, Keith M.
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v46 n2 p129-146 Jun 2015
Neoliberal policies have opened the door to a steady stream of contract providers who assist struggling schools while producing market-ready reforms. This ethnographic example of Allport High School illustrates how constant aid, in combination with internal market expansion, destabilizes school structures, obscures curricula, and transfers local resources to compliance measures. I advance the term "persistent fringe" to describe schools like Allport that serve as proving grounds for educational reform prototypes.
