Education as a commodity: Buying, selling, and making money out of education and skills

Education as a commodity: Buying, selling, and making money out of education and skills (published June 2012) reports on a seminar exploring how the profit motive is already influencing the education and skills system, and how it might shape it in the future. In the context of increasing private sector involvement in the provision of public services, the seminar set out to consider whether and how the profit motive could help us to solve problems in education and skills policy.
