Educational Reforms in Greece (1959-1997) and Human Capital Theory
Georgiadis, Nikos M.
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v5 n2 Nov 2007
This article deals with the effects of Human Capital Theory on the theoretical frameworks, the rhetoric and the aims of the educational reforms that took place in Greece during the period 1959 to 1997. It also deals with the re-emergence of the theory in the 1990s within the new context, as an important element of the neo-liberal education policies that have been in practice during the last seventeen years, and comments on the implementation of this policy in Greece and its results up to now. (Contains 7 notes.)
