Neoliberalism and Illusion: The Importance of Preparing Students to Live in the 21st Century
Fitzner, Jennifer
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v15 n2 p214-239 Oct 2017
While this paper discusses the history of neoliberalism with emphasis on the role of the United States, it also addresses the challenges neoliberalism poses for individuals. Additionally, the paper discusses the failure of school curriculum to prepare youth in the United States for growing economic uncertainty, as well as media's role in hindering their political and economic understanding. This essay recognizes the great need for critical media literacy's inclusion in the official curriculum as a source of disambiguation.
