about this item

As neoliberalist logic sinks deeper into our society with each passing year, its impact on the education system increases. In Making Workers, Katharyne Mitchell argues that education, in a context of shifting spaces, narratives, actors, and values, plays a critical role in the social and political formation of youth. She argues that education is undergoing an imperative shift towards individual choice—in schools, faculty, technology, and curricula—that if unchecked will only further entrench the position of the private sector. Through a vibrant analysis of the effects of neoliberalism on education systems in the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada, Mitchell presents us with an in-depth look at the possibilities and challenges for resistance
