Learning from the Neo-Liberal Movement: Towards a Global Justice Education Movement
Saltman, Kenneth J.
Journal of Educational Administration and History, v47 n3 p315-326 2015
This commentary suggests that a countermovement for educational and social justice must learn from the dominant global neo-liberal movement and its successes in creating institutions and knowledge-making processes and networks. Local struggles for educational justice are important, but they need to be linked to a broader educational justice movement. Such a movement itself has to be seen as part of a struggle for genuine democracy.
