How Education Researchers Have Colluded in the Rise of Neoliberalism: What Should the Role of Academics Be in These Trumpian Times?
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v30 n10 p1006-1012 2017
The Trump administration represents less a break from the Bush and Obama administration education reforms than an expansion of those reforms. I argue that academics have been complicit in these reforms through the depolitization and privatization of their scholarship and their adherence to a technological framework of knowledge production, dissemination, and utilization. I call for education professionals in universities and schools to build alliances to co-generate knowledge, find ways to place it at the service of the common good and advocate for more equitable "public" schools.
