Wither the Neighborhood? Education Policy, Neoliberal Globalization and Gentrification


by Kalervo N. Gulson 2009

This chapter is part of broader ongoing attempts to demonstrate that shifts in educational policy can be understood as mutually constitutive with the changing nature of contemporary cities, including changes in urban policy (see, e.g., Gulson, 2007a, 2007b, 2008). In this chapter I want to explore one aspect of these broader attempts, namely the relationships between education policy, globalization, and the notion of the neighborhood. To do this I am going to briefly propose that the neighborhood has been deemed as relatively insignificant within certain discourses of globalization, and then use the chapter to try and argue that the neighborhood retains significance not despite but through neoliberal globalization as played out in the connections between gentrification and education markets.
