Education Topic 11 - The New Right View on education


The New Right View on Education

  • Education is not interested in promoting equality, but rather, about getting the most able into the most important jobs

  • Education should keep people together

  • Chubb and Moe: schools run by local authorities (the state) do not reflect the needs of the country or parents wishes

  • Schools should be like businesses - answerable to parents and children (like the free market) where schools are run by business principles - this is called marketixation

  • Competition helps improve education and delivers better value for money for the taxpayer

  • Education should be akin to supermarkets - looking for more customers and competing

  • Failing schools should be shut down - a business wouldn't survive; why should a school?
