Throughout the industrialized world, education is being transformed from a public service into a tradeable commodity in the market-place. As education plays a central role in moulding the attitudes and careers of young people, this change will have a profound impact. Using the Australian education system as its case study, this book examines the implications of this transformation for education as a whole - primary and secondary schooling, technical and further education, universities and academic research. The author provides insights into controversies such as public funding and private institutions, tertiary fees, education and equality, and standards versus difference.
