about

This volume describes the economic context of the world today, and defines what debtocracy is and what revolutionary education can do about it. It explores how current neo-liberal policies and trends undermine education as a potential site of democratic learning and revolutionary social change. The authors argue that concerned educators no longer have the luxury of intellectual isolation and political inaction but must instead confront the present situation in manifest ways. This requires openly challenging the neoliberal government meddling in educational governance, the massive under-funding of education, and the removal of the institutional control of the educational process.

The volume begins by examining debtocracy and reviews the current shift from ideological to repressive enforcement of its policies. We discuss the impact debtocracy has on human rights and social justice, and consider ways to restore thick democracy through education and revolutionary pedagogy.

Maria Nikolakakiis Assistant Professor in Pedagogy-Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Peloponnese.Leonidas Vatikiotisteaches Economics at the Free Varna University of Cyprus. He was the scientific editor of the influential documentary films,DebtocracyandCatastroika.
