Education Policy, Space and the City : Markets and the (In)visibility of Race, Hardback Book

Education Policy, Space and the City : Markets and the (In)visibility of Race Hardback

Description

Drawing on three case studies of K-12 public schooling in London, Sydney and Vancouver, this book examines the geographies of neoliberal education policy in the inner city.

Gulson uses an innovative and critical spatial approach to explore how the processes and practices of neoliberal education policy, specifically those relating to education markets and school choice, enable the pervasiveness of a white, middle-class, re-imagining of inner-city areas, and render race "(in)visible." With urbanization posited as one of the central concerns for the future of the planet, relationships between the city, educational policy, and social and educational inequality deserve sustained examination.

Gulson's book is a rich and needed contribution to these areas of study.
