chapterposted on 2023-08-30, 14:06 authored by Dave Hill, Christine Lewis, Patrick Yarker, Alpesh Maisuria
In this chapter we firstly set out the facts about the current stage of capitalism, the Immiseration stage of neoliberal capitalism in England. We briefly note its relationship with conservatism and neo-conservatism. We identify increased societal inequalities, the assault by the capitalist state on its opponents, proceed to describe and analyse what neoliberalism and neoconservatism have done and are doing to education in England- in the schools, further education, and university sectors. We present two testimonies about the impacts of neoliberalism/neoconservatism, one from the school sector, one from the further / vocational education sector, as a means of describing, analysing,and then theorising the parameters of the neoliberal/ neoconservative restructuring education and its impacts. We conclude by further theorising this` revolution’ and, as with the other four countries specifically addressed in this book, there is a separate chapter on resistance to Immiseration Capitalism- and to Capitalism itself.
