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.

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…

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…

Duarte, Bryan J. – Policy Futures in Education, 2019
The current neoliberal policy regime that has dictated school reform policies such as standardized testing and performance accountability challenges the professional values of teachers.

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.
