Drawing on an international range of contexts and settings, this book provides innovative examples of how neoliberalism in education can be challenged and changed at the local, national, and transnational levels in order to foster a more democratic culture. Neoliberalism has been widely criticized because of its role in prioritizing ‘free markets’ as the optimum way of solving problems and organizing society. In the field of education, this leads to an emphasis on the knowledge economy to the detriment of wider social and ethical goals in ways that reduce both persons and education to solely economic actors.
