Show Me the Money! Neoliberalism at Work in Education
Ball, Stephen J.
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v54 n1 p23-28 2012
Neoliberalism is often addressed by commentators and critics as a set of ideas or a doctrine. This article considers neoliberalism as a set of financial practices and exchanges--as about money and profit--and goes on to suggest that as practitioners, researchers, activists we need to understand and engage with that logic and its mechanisms. Examples are given of the role of money in all aspects of education policy and education reform.
