Abstract

This paper is concerned with the growing tendency amongst governments internationally to introduce forms of privatisation into public education and to move to privatise sections of public education. It identifies a set of global trends in the privatisation of education.¹ It is based on a report prepared for Education International (Ball and Youdell, 2008) which details the variety of forms that privatisation in and of education takes; connects these forms of privatisation to particular contexts; considers some of the impacts and consequences of these privatising tendencies for the work of teachers and students' experiences of school; and explores some of the mechanisms and interests that are driving these changes. Examples and illustrations of the trends noted here can be found in the report.
