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.

I look at the neoliberal remedy 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.

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…

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,…

Boxley, Simon – Policy Futures in Education, 2017
In Peter McLaren's words "We need a philosophically grounded alternative to capitalism", but what does such a philosophical grounding look like? Need it be shared? The philosophical basis for practice was not shared by Lenin and Bogdanov, for example, and yet both retained the ability to work together in the Bolshevik party. There's a…
