The central theme of this volume is that, in recent decades, education in Australia (and many other countries) has been taken over by a managerialist ideology which has “damaged the profession of teaching by reducing teacher autonomy, deskilling teachers’ work, standardising curricula and introducing prefab lessons and scripted curricula”(p 3).
