Abstract

This paper discusses the problems, tensions and paradoxes inherent to the neoliberal philosophy of education. In particular, I highlight two moral objections, fairness and corruption, to English literature curricula and assessment reforms. I conclude with a recognition of the integral importance of discursive critique.
