Reversal Reversed? The New Consensus on Education and Training
Ainley, Patrick
London Review of Education, v13 n2 p179-185 Sep 2015
England for the foreseeable future is stuck with a one-track government that knows only the crisis measures with which Margaret Thatcher responded to the 1970s crisis of capital accumulation. Deregulation of all public services with privatization of provision on the contracting-out state model is seen as the solution to every problem and is a part of the motivation for those who seek to leave the overly regulated European Union. A small state in a free market is the narrow-minded ideal, but it reflects more than poverty of imagination in response to the global challenges that threaten to overwhelm humanity. In this article, the author shares his thoughts on the crisis of legitimacy in education.
