In the Market for Ideas: How Reforms in the Political Economy of Educational Research in the US and UK Promote Market Managerialism
St. Clair, Ralf; Belzer, Alisa
Comparative Education, v43 n4 p471-488 Nov 2007
Transformations in educational research structures in the United States and UK over the past decade are examined, and it is argued that these changes are manifestations of wider forces. Rather than internal developments in the field, they are better understood as serving the changing interests of the state in an era of increasingly globalized capital. The argument that the imposed changes improve the quality of educational research is shown to be inconclusive. It is suggested that these structural transformations can be seen as an attempt to promote market managerialism in educational research for political ends.
