ABSTRACT
The article discusses the corporatization of public schools which is viewed as redistributing economic and cultural control from public to private interest that undermine public democracy. Corporate model of organization is being applied to schools, fostering consumerism and replacing collective participation with authoritarian features. According to the author, aspects of education are influenced by business and market reflected by for-profit management of schools, for-profit charter schools, and school commercialism, to name some. The largest Educational Management Organization (EMO), the Edison Learning (formerly Edison Schools), is given as the main example. The agenda of the Obama Administration on educational innovation as proof of neoliberalism is also discussed.
