Personalisation and the Education Commodity: A Meta-Ethnographic Analysis
Beach, Dennis
Ethnography and Education, v12 n2 p148-164 2017
This article is based on a meta-ethnography of research about schools, school experiences and learning following the recent (post-market) introduction of personalisation policies in Swedish schools. It pays particular attention to issues of equity. Tensions between personalisation, privatisation and equity are discussed and it is noted that personalisation policies seem to have been unable to evade the pressures of commodification or overcome the difficulties of social reproduction in education.
