SILENCE ON THE WOLVES: WHAT IS ABSENT IN NEW LABOUR’S FIVE YEAR STRATEGY FOR EDUCATION

My paper Silence on the Wolves: What is Absent in New Labour’s Five Year Strategy for Education – is now on Academia.

Although some of the content might seem dated, the business takeover of schools in England goes on apace. This is what the paper is really about; it is not just a narrow ‘education policy’ critique. Furthermore, there is some analysis of human capital theory, labour power and employers’ labour power needs in section 3 of the paper. Those interested in Marxist analyses of education will find the paper of interest over-and-above any education policy concerns.
