250,00 kr

What kind of ideological apparatus is our current school system, and how is the relationship between freedom and discipline considered in the system’s most recent controversial changes? The Phantom of Liberty is a response to ongoing debates about pedagogy, school, and educational policy. The modern state is occupied by the question how schooling can be made ​​more efficient, how children’s learning can be optimized. The interest in children’s performance at school undoubtedly stems from the competition thinking that characterizes “adult society.”
