Modernism in School Reform: Promoting Private over Public Good
Nordgren, R. D.
Educational Leadership and Administration: Teaching and Program Development, v27 p21-33 Mar 2016
School reform in the past several decades has taken a "modernist" bent in that it has focused on quantitatively based accountability systems modeled after business (Ravitch, 2013; Tienken & Orlich, 2013). The author uses a model devised by a Finnish scholar to demonstrate that 1) these reforms are indeed modernist, and 2) the private good is being promoted over the public good, and 3) that privatization and standardized tests are the primary tactics used to force schools to comply with this vision for schooling.
