Quoted from an email I just sent

"The definition of education has always been contested terrain. Education as prison, education as babysitting, education as job training.... education as liberatory, education as a privilege, education as a means to an active citizenry.... none of these has ever completely won; all have influenced education, including higher education, as a whole [and certainly the list is not complete]. Certainly at different times and in different cultures, one particular ideology may become dominant. Here, now, I see the trend as anti-liberatory, anti-critical thinking and pro-job training. In other words, pro-capitalist."
