«This case study on Québec will examine how neoliberalism and globalization influence two aspects of its educational system. The first aspect will focus on the processes of privatization and marketization in Québec. These processes not only enable private interests to influence public education but also obfuscate the relationship between educational inequality and social inequality. The second aspect will focus on recent educational reforms which determined that globalization has significant implications for Québec education. The Québec Education Program was devised in a context where curriculum had to adapt to the changing nature of work amidst greater economic integration and more information technology. This case study will end with a chapter that is dedicated to teacher trade unionism in Québec, Canada and North America. It is through these struggles that neoliberal ideology is challenged and alternative visions for public education are presented as concrete aims.» (p. 1) Dans cette recherche, l’auteur aborde aussi l’impact du néolibéralisme sur les parents. Ainsi, il aborde la question du choix du parent à envoyer son enfant dans une école privée ou publique pour exemplifier la présence du néolibéralisme dans le secteur de l’éducation.
