Student Partnership, Trust and Authority in Universities
White, Morgan
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v50 n2 p163-173 2018
Marketisation is rife in higher education. Asymmetries between consumers and producers in markets result in inefficiencies. To address imbalances, policy-makers pushing higher education towards a market model have a tendency to increase the market power of the student by increasing information or amplifying voice. One such policy in England is called "students as partners." However, I argue here that student partnership can easily undermine relations of authority and trust between students and academic teachers.
