This is what we might call neoliberal pedagogy, the ‘technocratic embedding of routines of neoliberal governance’ (Peck and Tickell 2002) in the everyday life of the school and the classroom. This entails the dissolution of an esoteric basis for pedagogical knowledge, for teaching, and opens the classroom up to another transition, another kind of fracturing. ’ (1979, p. 25 * “Everything gets measured and what gets measured gets managed” McKinsey in-house motto. That is, ‘the extension of the economic form of the market ‘to the entire social body and to generalize it inside the whole social system that, normally, does not pass through or is not authorized by the market’ (Foucault 2010, p.
180). But he contrasts the biological determinism of eugenics with cognitive development psychologies that ‘accorded biology a less direct role but still conceptualised the individual as a unitary rational actor’ (p. 181). The relationship to the teacher, and the teacher and pedagogy are constructed differently in each case. Progressive Pedagogy (Bernstein 1990, p. 72) I want to argue that the shift from measurement to developmentalism addresses an intensiﬁcation of power which is more focused on the question of who we are and who we might become than our performances.
As David Gillard explains the context in which the report was written and read: The context in which the Committee worked was characterised by an increasingly liberal view of education and society. ‘Plowden’s membership and terms of reference were a product of the optimism and belief in social engineering of its time’ (Kogan 1987). 14 Progressive education is a pedagogical movement that began in the late nineteenth century; it has persisted in various forms to the present. Progressive education can be traced back to the works of John Locke and Jean-Jacques Rousseau, both of whom are known as forerunners of ideas that would be developed by theorists such as John Dewey.
