Benson, Jeremy – Policy Futures in Education, 2020
In the United States, charter school proliferation remains a top priority for neoliberal education reformers and their private sector allies.

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. In practice, it has tended towards mobilising state power in the interests of capital, remaking societies and individuals in this process. Perhaps inevitably, education systems, the world…

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…

The National Socialist regime was, generally speaking, not interested in an outright levelling of social differentiation patterns, as they were present within the German society around 1933. On the contrary: old hierarchies were to be fought and new ones were to be established--both according to the Nazi administration's social ideology and,…

Shchurko, Tatsiana – Policy Futures in Education, 2018
After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Belarus began to develop a national system of education trying to balance the prioritization of Soviet legacy, strong state control, and processes of democratization.

This article examines how these business groups, including the "billionaire boys club" and their mega…

Malott, Curry – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
No significant scholarship in educational studies has focused on Lefebvre's engagement with socialist state theory and his position against Stalin. As a result, when Lefebvre's thoughts on the state and on actually existing socialism are mentioned, they are engaged completely uncritically. This essay addresses this crucial gap. Toward these ends,…
