This article focuses on neoliberal governing by the European Union of cross-sectoral youth policies directed at young people 'at risk'. The aim is to show how the alliance of discourses of employability and precariousness in these policies has emerged and how these discourses operate in policy. In the article, we analyse European Council and…

The election of the first indigenous president in Bolivia, Evo Morales (leader of the Movimiento al Socialismo, MAS), and of Rafael Correa in Ecuador (leader of Alianza País, AP) were important turning points in the social and economic history of these two countries.

Cole, Rose M.; Heinecke, Walter F. – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Contemporary college student activism has been particularly visible and effective in the past few years at US institutions of higher education and is projected only to grow in future years.

Slater, Graham B. – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
This article explores the realm of educational politics and the organization of opposition to neoliberal school reform in the United States of America.

Bourassa, Gregory N. – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
This essay expands on the concept of educational life and builds on an autonomist Marxist framework that better allows us to understand neoliberalism's parasitic operations.

d'Agnese, Vasco – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Over the past decades, a neoliberal shift in educational policies has affected educational purposes and schooling practices worldwide and has reframed all of the features of education.

This article explores the Opt Out Florida (OOF) movement, a predominantly woman-led group seeking to dismantle neoliberal education policy by coaching children to boycott high-stakes standardized tests.

Klees, Steven J. – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Education within capitalism too often reproduces social and economic inequalities. Schools are depicted as failing and teachers are blamed. In this paper, I examine the discourses underlying this situation and the role of foundations in the US and the World Bank in developing countries in maintaining it. I look at the neoliberal remedy of…

Teasley, Cathryn – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Whereas universal public access to early childhood education and care has long occupied a prominent place in feminist demands to end patriarchy, not only has such access gone largely unmet in most countries, save some noteworthy exceptions, but privatized childcare and early education has only gained momentum through neoliberalism, a process that…

Maton, Rhiannon M.; Nichols, T. Philip – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
Starting in the late 1960s, alternative schools were established in many public school districts across North America. These programs tended to embrace humanizing ideals and sought to center self-expression, creativity, and non-hierarchical values in school governance models. While alternative schools persist today, many now embrace a range of…
