Engaging with Steven J. Klees' "A Quarter Century of Neoliberal Thinking in Education: Misleading Analyses and Failed Policies"
Vinokur, Annie
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v6 n4 p363-365 2008
In his article titled "A Quarter Century of Neoliberal Thinking in Education: Misleading Analyses and Failed Policies," Steven J. Klees gives readers a remarkably thorough and extensive critical assessment of the "Great Experiment" in education. He also shows readers that, in the USA as well as in the less developed countries, both the misleading analysis and failed policies he describes are widely acknowledged as such, even by their proponents. So the question is: why is this "experiment" now spreading rapidly around the world? The author's hypothesis is that it has not failed--if people take as the criteria of success not its advertised objectives, but its underlying intents. The latter can be inferred from both the economic changes of the last quarter century and the concomitant development of the neoliberal ideology. In this article, the author expounds on this hypothesis. (Contains 1 note.)
