early childhood education as a commodity

“the absence of democracy from key national policy documents reflects the priority given to technical practice and managerialised politics and the consequences of understanding large swathes of early childhood education as businesses selling a commodity.”

p.10 Moss, Peter (2007) ‘Bringing politics into the nursery: early childhood education as a democratic practice’ European Early Childhood Education Research Journal 15(1), 5-20


About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
