Advancing a powerful critique of neoliberalized education in many of the rich countries of the world (USA, Canada, Finland, Greece, Israel, Japan, England and Wales, and others), the chapters in this book, written by an international array of acclaimed and emerging radical educators and policy analysts, critically examine and evaluate:What neoliberal changes have taken place (e.g., privatization, vouchers, charter schools, weakening of democratic control of schools, setting up markets in schools and retreating from the comprehensive school principle, commercialization of education, new public managerialism in education)?What are the impacts of these changes on access and equal opportunities, on democracy and critical thinking, and on the rights, pay and conditions of teachers and ancillary/support staff?
