To Market, to Market to Buy a...Middle-Class Life? Insecurity, Anxiety, and Neoliberal Education in Michigan
Lyon-Callo, Vincent
Learning and Teaching: The International Journal of Higher Education in the Social Sciences, v3 n3 p63-90 Win 2010
Corporatisation of universities and restructurings of K-12 schooling in the United States occurred during a period of broad economic, social and political restructurings, which have transformed the lives of middle-class Americans. Community and individual level investments in education are frequently represented as antidotes to increased insecurities confronting these subjects. This paper draws upon my interactions within both the school system and the university in which I work to explore how such practices continue to make sense to students, parents, and policy makers despite the lack of evidence demonstrating that such strategies overcome declining economic security and to suggest possibilities for alternative practices to produce collective mobilisations against inequality.
