On whether testing in schools is a byproduct of privatization. This was mandated by the federal government, with No Child Left Behind in , and we had a lot of states who are mandating this kind of testing a decade earlier. And you do have these companies who not only benefit from this mandated testing, but they also manufacture need with a lot of benchmark assessments throughout the year to prepare students for these exams.
Have England's universities been privatised by stealth?
I see the testing, though, as a product not so much of privatization, but of this commercial mindset. And then we like to think of everything in terms of profits and losses, and reading and math scores comport with that vision of how schools work, as any aspect of our economy works. So she can lobby for that. How she can make it happen at the federal level is another question. There isn't that much money in the federal budget for education.
So it's a bit of a mystery about how she can really make privatization take that much more hold across the country. We have a push in Nevada that's in the court system right now about making money available to all parents regardless of income so they can send their children to private school.
Insights and impacts from privatising the public university
And it may be the case that this will spread to other states. For interstate visitors, we offer suggestions for accommodation near ANU. Her research spans discrimination law, feminist legal theory, legal education, legal profession and the corporatisation of universities. Since the Dawkins reforms, there has been a dizzying rollercoaster of change in universities, facilitated by managerialism and metricisation.

The changes have caused most academics to turn away and meekly do what the manageriat tells them to do boiled frog syndrome? As universities become more like for-profit corporations, decision-making processes have become remote and opaque.
The demise of collegiality has meant that there is unlikely to be a forum in which to question the new orthodoxy. This presentation will consider the impact of the transformation for the future of the university and for society more generally. Professor Margaret Thornton is a socio-legal and feminist scholar whose work on the legal academy and the legal profession is internationally recognised.
