Negation and Construction of Education in the New Social Order

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The post Civil War period represented a new socio-political and economic era. The forces of production, in that instance, steam power and industrialization would not be denied. The institutions of agrarianism had to be destroyed or transformed as they were ill-suited for the new period. Emergent capitalism constructed institutions, including schools and race relations which would serve manufacturing. We have much to learn from the study of political economy!!!
Likewise, today digitization will not be denied. For the first time in human history, the obsolescence of human labor is a real prospect. The contradictions of the new reality are frightening. As people are permanently jettisoned from traditional labor, the wealth of society is now concentrated in the hands of a few. A new plutocratic social order, politically expressed in neoliberalism, is upon us restructuring laws, institutions, schools, race relations, the labor market, governance, etc. The dialectics of negation/construction moves mercilessly, rapidly and without announcement.
This paper, part of a new book release, The Assault on Public Education (Teachers College Press, 2011) William Watkins, Editor, attempts to unpack and make understandable the new education in the new order. Paper will highlight the likely horrific impact on African Americans and other marginalized peoples in the early 21st century.
Objective
Joining the discourses and theorizing of political economy to education, the paper (and book) should greatly add to our collective understanding of school “reform” and institutional transformation in the era of neoliberalism.
