Schools in the Marketplace: Analysis of School Supply Responses in the Chilean Education Market
Zancajo, Adrián
Educational Policy, v34 n1 p43-64 Jan 2020
This article presents the findings of research focused on schools' responses to competitive environments. Using the Chilean education market as a case study, the article analyzes not only the responses developed by schools in different domains in the face of competitive incentives but also their diversity, as well as motivations, rationalities, and objectives behind these responses. The findings also show how different mediating factors at the school and local levels are essential to any understanding of the capacity of market-oriented policies to alter the behavior of schools and obtain the expected results in terms of equity.
