While alternative schools persist today, many now embrace a range of…

Rodgers Gibson, Morgan – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
Neoliberalism is often understood as being both an epoch of capitalism and a zealous ideological commitment to the primacy of private property and free markets.

Tomicic, Ana – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
While universities now lie between two philosophical poles -- idealism and utilitarianism -- the Humboldtian ideal primarily serves to give a humanist glaze to a technocratic discourse. Regardless of its autonomy on paper, the University does not control its finances. This guise of autonomy has set a double authoritarian heteronomy of the…

Tóth, Tamás; Mészáros, György; Marton, András – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
From the perspective of the world-systems theory and post-colonial studies, the 1989 transition in Hungary was a part of the re-integration of former Soviet countries into an inferior position in the world system. The political-economic transition was in no sense a revolution, but a replacement of dictatorial/totalitarian state capitalism with…
