Abstract

The Arts are marginalised in education because of a lack of fit with a dominant market-capitalist ideology, based around economic utility and measurement. To become acceptable, the Arts are using its values and language, so becoming part of the culture has seen the Arts as having little worth. Rather than being an opportunity for individual and progressive change, the Arts become an agent of conformity.
