Grammars of Privatization, Schooling, and the “Network State”
In her book, Hidden Markets: The New Education Privatization, Patricia Burch (2009) observes that the “center of gravity in public policy has shifted. Once considered relatively fringe, market principles of competition, consumerism, and incentives linked to performance, have become accepted policy strategies for improving social outcomes” (p. 1). As part of this process, Jill Blackmore (2000) points out that “more flexible delivery regimes” (p. 147) have been introduced.
