Neoliberalism and Education in the Americas

Synopsis

In Neoliberalism & Education in Latin America, Adriana Puiggros illuminates the process by which the borders separating educators in the United States & Latin America have been erased due to imperialist policies that affect democratic pedagogy in both parts of the Americas. Puiggros takes stock of the critical work on educational relations between the United States & Latin America, covering the evolution of Latin American pedagogical discussion in recent decades. She argues that the association of education with progress, the cornerstone of the U.S. educational system, takes on a different meaning when exported to Latin America as a slogan. Limitless progress, an aim typical of advanced capitalism, becomes, in developing countries, an exhortation toward an unattainable goal: a mirror reflection of U.S. society.
