Summary
"Through a detailed examination of policy texts from primarily Australia, the United Kingdom and the European Union, this text provides insights into the strategies through which flexibility and lifelong learning are realized as part of the common sense of educational discourse. Rather than simply rejecting these ideas, or suggesting that they are merely the window dressing for the more malign interests of the knowledge economy or globalization, it suggests a politics of the wedge and possibilities for the insertion of different meanings. Central to the claims of this text is the fact that we need to engage closely with the discursive and rhetorical strategies of policy, in order that we understand both how it is constructed and thus how it can be deconstructed."--BOOK JACKET
