Hidden Privatisation in Public Education

Written by on . Published in Learning our lesson

This study was published on Issuu by Education International:

“Many innovative proposals are put forward by our unions to reform and improve education. The debate should not be about whether education reforms are needed, but rather about the kind of reforms, and the conditions for success. A central issue, as this report so clearly shows, concerns the very ethos of education. One of the striking features that emerges is that hidden privatization has many facets. It takes many forms. And these different facets can be inter-related and mutually reinforcing, strengthening trends that are changing the face of education as we know it. Hidden privatization and/or commercialization of public education has enormous implications for the way we think about education, for the values that underpin education.”
