TLÜ IET seminar "Education and the Commercial Mindset"

Toimub: 08.01.2018, kell 16:00-18:00
Koht: Tallinna Ülikool, M-648
8. jaanuaril on Interdistsiplinaarsete Eluteeuuringute Tippkeskuse kutsel Tallinna Ülikooli külastamas Samuel Abrams, kes juhib Columbia Ülikooli instituuti, mis on keskendunud eratoimijate rolli analüüsimisele haridusvalitsemises.   
                
Samuel Abramsi visiidi eesmärk on viia läbi seminar, kus ta tutvustab oma uut raamatut ning kutsub sellest tõukuvalt üles arutlema hariduse turusarnastamise järelmite üle. 
Oodatud on kõik haridushuvilised, aga ka ülejäänud, kes turusarnastamist või turuks muutmist eri eluvaldkondades tajuvad, selle nähtuse lätete vastu huvi tunnevad ning selle üle mõtiskleda tahavad.         
Seniks saavad huvilised tutvuda ülevaateartiklitega tema raamatust.
            
Drawing on his book, Education and the Commercial Mindset (Harvard University Press, 2016), Samuel E. Abrams will discuss the divergent paths taken by education policymakers in Chile, Finland, Sweden, and the United States.      
Writing in The NewYork Review of Books, Diane Ravitch described Education and the Commercial Mindset as “an elegant analysis of the workings of market forces in education.” Reviewing the book for Teachers College Record, Margaret Tompkins-Stange described it as “exceptionally balanced, meticulously researched, and rooted in a deep understanding of the historical, cultural, and social antecedents of the widespread use of business practices and norms in education.” In Dissent, Leo Casey wrote, “Education and the Commercial Mindset provides the most detailed and comprehensive analysis of the school privatization movement to date.”                 
This excerpt from Education and the Commercial Mindset concerning Finnish education policy was published by The Stanford Social Innovation Review. For interviews with Abrams about his book, see this story by Laura Saarikoski for the Helsingin Sanomat and this column by Valerie Strauss for The Washington Post.           
Abrams is the director of the National Center for the Study of Privatization in Education at Teachers College, Columbia University. In addition to Education and the Commercial Mindset, his publications include a chapter on Nordic education in Utbildningsekonomi: Om lärandets värde (Natur och Kultur, 2017) and an essay in The Los Angeles Times on the education policy of the Trump administration.
          
Committed to fitness as well as scholarship, Abrams is a veteran coach in the Ice Hockey in Harlem program in New York’s Central Park. In recognition of his promotion of the understanding of Finnish education in the United States, the Finnish government in 2014 made Abrams a Knight, First Class, Order of the Lion of Finland.
Also, you can get a feel for the book, from the excerpt published by The Stanford Social Innovation Review, the interview with the columnist at The Washington Post, and the article published by the Helsingin Sanomat.
