Wright, A. (2013). The school as an arena of political contestation: education policy from a post-Marxist perspective. Praktyka Teoretyczna, 7(1), 241–264.


Marksizm był i wciąż zdaje się być dominującą perspektywą teoretyczną
w obrębie krytycznej analizy polityki edukacyjnej. Autor opisuje zróżnicowane
„obrazy” szkoły obecne w teorii marksistowskiej, a krytykowane za determinizm
ekonomiczny i redukcjonizm klasowy. Odwołując się do prac Ernesto Laclaua,
prezentuje alternatywne dla marksizmu ramy teoretyczne, które można wykorzystać
w krytycznych badaniach produkcji i implementacji polityki edukacyjnej. Z tej
perspektywy, szkoła oraz polityka edukacyjna postrzegane są jako przestrzenie politycznej
kontestacji i walki o hegemonię.
