Globalization and Education within a System of Neoliberal Accountability
|作者||Anthony Gary Dworkin、Pamela F.Tobe|
Globalization has had a profound effect on educational systems in developed and developing nations, with many of its consequences being unanticipated. This essay addresses one salient component of globalization, the neoliberal push for increased accountability and conformity (a mechanism for social control) within educational systems. Especially relevant are those accountability mandates that have high-stakes consequences for schools and school employees. By its very nature accountability expectations imply a degree of distrust of those being assessed. The nature of the trust relationships between schools, school personnel and the larger society have been altered by accountability mandates. Relational trust has become more bureaucratic and may be seen as violating the original social contract between school personnel and the society, where less competitive salaries were accepted in exchange for job security. The unanticipated consequences include “gaming the system” and diminished employee morale.
