EDUCATION, STATE AND MARKET: ANATOMY OF NEOLIBERAL IMPACT

A new book edited by Ravi Kumar

Aakar Books

See: http://aakarbooks.com/content/education-state-and-market-anatomy-neoliberal-impact-0

 

 

Praise for the volume:

‘The book presents a set of papers that illuminate in profound ways how the wide-angle historical frames provided by Marxist analysis facilitate our understanding of the details embedded in national and more local educational contexts. Neoliberalism attacks human dignity. The consequences of social, economic, and educational policies that exacerbate inequality, magnify exploitation, and undermine personal and social freedoms are clearly analyzed by each of the contributors. The circumstances are dire and readers will most certainly be outraged as they learn how neoliberal policies and practices reduce the process of education to a commodity and teachers and learners to elements in formula for the relentless production of profit. This volume presents a clear and compelling analysis of how neoliberal thought and practice has transformed education at the policy level in India and in the process distorted the official aims of education as well as social relations among teachers and learners. Most importantly, however, these chapters provide insights into how we might channel our rage against neoliberal capitalist mechanisms into the creation of new visions of resistance to educational practices that privilege profits over people.’

E. Wayne Ross, University of British Columbia

 

‘Editor Ravi Kumar has assembled the finest scholarship to investigate key questions in regard to the relationship of the development of modern capitalism, its connections to empire, the role of the state, and the resulting impact on education. The essays within go to the core: what is valued as “knowledge” now? Who shall schools serve? Indeed: Why have school? The critical reader will find new questions, and profound answers.’

Rich Gibson, Professor Emeritus, San Diego State University, USA

WHAT IS THE FUTURE FOR PRIMARY EDUCATION?

LONDON PRIMARY SCHOOLS CONFERENCE

Date: Saturday 1st December 2012

Venue: Reay School, Hackford Road,

Lambeth, London SW9 0EN (near Oval Tube)

Time: 10.00am – 3.00pm. Lunch provided

Speakers:

Steve Reed, Leader of Lambeth Council

Sue Palmer, ECA (Early Childhood Action) and author of Toxic Childhood and 21st Century Boys

Katie Mitchell OBE, Associate Director of National Theatre

John Coe, National Association of Primary Education (NAPE)

Judy Ellerby, NUT principal officer for Primary Schools

Jess Edwards, Primary School music teacher

More speakers to be confirmedMalevolent Pixie

Key debates and workshops to include:

How do we solve the shortage of school places in London schools? London’s children need 90,000 additional primary school places by 2015/16.

Will the new Primary curriculum take us back to the 1950s? The Coalition government is proposing wide ranging reform to the curriculum including phonics testing and other rote learning approaches.

How do we get a more creative curriculum? Teachers and parents know that what really inspires our children is a creative curriculum that builds their cultural and emotional level.

How will cuts in breakfast clubs and other support services affect our children? Cuts in essential services such as EMA grants and cuts to benefits see our most vulnerable children suffer.

Will the ‘free market’ in education deliver higher standards? The Coalition government claims academies and free schools are the answer to raising standards and tackling social inequality.

Do we still need a ‘middle tier’? The role of Local Authorities in education is also under intense pressure. Austerity cuts and the emergence of private providers are changing the nature of local democratic accountability.

Organised by Lambeth Teachers’ Association in association with others

Education Crisis

WIDENING PARTICIPATION: PROFESSIONAL PRACTICES AND IDENTITIES

SRHE Access and Widening Participation Network

Wednesday, 14 November 2012

Registration 12.30

Programme 1.00 – 4.00pm

SRHE, 73 Collier St, LondonN1 9BE

Widening Participation: Professional Practices and Identities

Little attention has been paid to the production of new professional identities and practices in higher education as part of the widening participation (WP) policy agenda. Jones and Thomas argue that WP practitioners tend to work on the periphery of universities, in separate centres and outside of academic faculties and departments (Jones and Thomas 2005). Burke (2012) argues that questions of identity matter in terms of power relations within institutions and the constructions of (lack of) authority that might facilitate or impede processes of change and transformation. This seminar draws on research to explore the spaces in which those with specific responsibility for WP work, and the implications of the roles, practices and identities of WP professionals for WP in higher education.

Working in a Third Space

Dr Celia Whitchurch, Senior Lecturer, Institute of Education, University of London

Widening participation professionals find themselves working in spaces that involve partnership with multiple stakeholders including, for instance, students, parents, schools, tertiary providers, employers, and regional and national agencies. Their roles can encompass broadly based projects such as student life, community partnership and institutional research. They therefore develop an appreciation of wide-ranging agendas relating to patterns of recruitment, learning support, outreach, welfare and employability.  In this sense they can be seen as working in what Whitchurch has termed a Third Space between academic and professional spheres of activity  (Whitchurch 2008, 2012). This has implications for understandings of, for instance, organisational relationships, sources of legitimacy, and career development. The session will draw on two studies funded by the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education to consider the challenges that arise for both individuals and institutions from these extended roles and identities, and ways in which such challenges might be addressed.

Stratification, marketisation and social inequalities: Institutional approaches to widening participation in higher education

Pauline Whelan (Centre for Social and Educational Research across the Life Course, LeedsMetropolitanUniversity)

In this talk, I contextualise institutional approaches to widening participation within an increasingly stratified and marketised English higher education system.  I present a series of visualisations of widening participation ‘performance’ data from all higher education institutions in England for the period 2002-2010, focusing on how institutional widening participation ‘performances’ have varied across mission groups and by institutional type.  While quantitative differences in institutional widening participation ‘performances’ tell revealing stories about institutional diversity, they also illuminate the problems of existing datasets and modes of accountability.  Turning from critical statistics to critical discourse analysis, I present an analysis of official widening participation documentation from 18 universities in England and discuss how institutions have variously adopted and rejected elements of national widening participation discourses, policies and philosophies.  Insights from the quantitative and qualitative analyses are used to conceptualise the variation in institutional approaches to widening participation and to consider the implications for social inequalities in higher education.

UNIVERSITIES AND THE STATE

SRHE Higher Educational Policy Network

Monday 19th March, 4-6.30pm, Room GC1-08

London Metropolitan University, Holloway Road, London N7

Changing Expectations of Universities and the Role of the State: A Historical and Contemporary Analysis

This seminar will explore changing expectations of universities through two different but complementary papers. Questions of the relationship between universities and society as well as issues of governance, purpose, participation and equality are raised.

Andrew M Boggs, University of Oxford    

Changing Concepts of ‘The University’ and Oxford’s Governance Debates, 1850s-2000s

This paper offers a historical exploration of changing ideas of the university and wider higher education policy debates through an analysis of the Universityof Oxford’s governance structures over a 150 year period. It offers a narrative of wider changes in the relationship between the university and society over this period.

 

Professor Penny Jane Burke, Roehampton University

Examining the im/possibilities of widening participation

This paper moves the focus on to the present where the relationship between universities and the state is undergoing a new period of change and uncertainty. The paper explores possibilities for maintaining a commitment to social justice, equality and widening participation in a policy context characterised by increased marketisation and competitiveness.

Tea and coffee will be available at 4pm and the event will start at 4.15. After each paper there will be time for questions and discussion, followed by an opportunity to discuss issues raised in both papers over a glass of wine or juice.

Event booking details

To reserve a place at this seminar please register at www.eventdotorg.co.uk/events.asp or telephone +44 (0) 207 4472525.  SRHE events are open to all and free to SRHE members as part of their membership package.
