Education for Y'All: Global Neoliberalism and the Case for a Politics of Scale in Sustainability Education Policy
McKenzie, Marcia
Policy Futures in Education, v10 n2 p165-177 2012
This article addresses the effects of neoliberalism as it operates through global and local educational policy, and in particular in relation to the United Nations' Education for Sustainable Development initiatives. It examines how a politics of scale is necessary in enabling critique and in rearticulating forms of education policy-making and practice that prioritize interscaler local "good sense" over neoliberal global "common sense". The article closes with examples of interscaler data from a participatory research project on youth orientations to place and sustainability that aims to use practice to generatively examine sustainability education policy. (Contains 8 figures.)
