About this book

This book describes how neoliberalism as societal philosophy works to limit human potential in our school systems. Analyzing contemporary school reform and control, punishment, and pathologization in schools, this book outlines a theory of emancipation and a process by which pedagogy can build solidarity in classrooms and society more broadly.

Reviews

"This is philosophy with a purpose: illuminating, critical, and relevant. This fascinating book is about the damage that austerity has done to education and the ways in which we might struggle to make education about something different. Working across the ideas of violation and emancipation in relation to contemporary neoliberalism, De Lissovoy builds a potent argument for humanity, dignity and decoloniality in pedagogical praxis. Very much of and for our times, this book is about what is intolerable and what is possible and we should take notice." - Stephen J. Ball, Karl Mannheim Professor of Sociology of Education, University of London, UK

"Education and Emancipation in the Neoliberal Era is a beautifully crafted book. Every page contains a unique take on pressing arguments that currently occupy the field of education. De Lissovoy creatively exercises the pedagogical imagination in a way that advances toward a viable and crucially important alternative to what often passes as critical teaching. This volume is of great importance for grasping the challenges to and the promises of teaching in these perilous times." - Peter McLaren, Distinguished Professor in Critical Studies and Co-Director of the Paulo Freire Democratic Project, Chapman University, USA
