A video popped up on Facebook:
Almost 2 years into a PhD studying a school and I’m less and less sure about where school starts and where it stops. School works its way into housing markets and into worries about whether we are indeed living in the right home, in the right place, whether that school is the right school. That’s a more complex question than whether a school is good or bad, it’s whether it’s right or not and there’s more to worry about there. I liked Thomas Lemke’s paper, “Foucault, Governmentality and Critique” for whom…
government refers to a continuum, which extends from political government right through to forms of self-regulation, namely “technologies of the self”. (2000:12)
and thought that school does the same or is made to do the same in order to generate profit. It’s not enough that we work to produce, we need to worry to produce or, better, worrying is now work.
