Making Workers
Pluto Press (UK) | September 20, 2017 | 208 pages

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.
