The Marketization of Education: Public Schools for Private Ends.
Bartlett, Lesley; Frederick, Marla; Gulbrandsen, Thaddeus; Murillo, Enrique
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v33 n1 p5-29 Mar 2002
Suggests that the 1980s neoliberal renaissance marketized education, with negative social consequences. Examines the emergence and promotion of a national-level discourse that positioned schools in the service of the economy. Ethnographic research shows how local growth elite utilized this discourse to further their own race and class interests, thus excluding poorer African American parents and students.
