The Swedish education system has undergone an extensive transformation and a new policy context characterised by external control, marketing and managerial accountability is now in place.

Nordin, Andreas – Education Inquiry, 2014
Around the mid-2000s a crisis discourse emerged in educational policy-making in the EU and in Sweden.

Brunila, Kristiina – Education Inquiry, 2014
The article focuses on how neoliberalism and therapisation are shaping perceptions of the problems faced by young people, particularly those considered 'at risk', and how young people as a consequence are identified.

Wright, Cecile – Education Inquiry, 2013
This article is a contribution to the ongoing issue and debate concerning the performance of black children in British schools.

Grimaldi, Emiliano; Serpieri, Roberto – Education Inquiry, 2013
Philanthropies and private foundations are increasingly acting as key nodes of the policy assemblages through which neoliberal and neomanagerialist policies are entering the field of education in Italy.

Sweden has commonly been regarded as a striking example of a social democratic welfare-state regime (Esping-Andersen 1996), characterized by strong state governance and active involvement in welfare matters. In the last two decades, however, the Swedish public sector and education system have been radically and extensively transformed in a…

Gulson, Kalervo N.; Webb, P. Taylor – Education Inquiry, 2013
In this paper we contend neo-liberal education policy which supports the creation of schooling choices in public education systems is reshaping, conflating and branding ethnicity. We make these points in reference to school choice in Toronto, Canada, and the establishment of an Africentric ethno-centric school. We argue that one of the registers…

The current era of neoliberal capitalism has witnessed the domination of public education by business interests which openly promote the spirit of competition among schools, educators and students through a policy of high stakes accountability for immediately measurable educational outcomes. In the USA, this policy proposes to make teacher…

Ozga, Jenny – Education Inquiry, 2011
New public management and the neo-liberal principles that sustain it have driven performance agendas in government across Europe and beyond. This has produced a loss of the traditional role of education in creating a coherent and persuasive collective myth of belonging, identity or purpose. This chapter discusses current developments in the policy…
