Yep absolutely and I think this is another key component along with the other stuff I mentioned. The “tripadvisor”isation of education. We know this stuff has unintended consequences - like that bit in The Wire when they change the crime stats and incentives for cops.but "audit culture" seemed to really arrive with the adoption of the school effectiveness and school improvement movement by blair.
Not sure what you mean by professionalisation here? (Not having a go - it can mean a lot of things).which went hand in hand with (and indeed motivated) increased funding for and profesionalisation of education
for example the idea of "school leadership" - heads as business leaders, the opening of more middle management positions, the marketing of teaching as a professional career, etc etcNot sure what you mean by professionalisation here? (Not having a go - it can mean a lot of things).
The tech giant Google has announced they will begin accepting Google Learning Certificates in place of college degrees, offering six-month courses for prospective employees to train for in-demand jobs in a fraction of the time it would take at University. The qualification will see successful students graduate with a Google Career Certificate, which will be viewed by the company as the equivalent of a four-year degree for similar roles.
I guess the question is whether you would have actually taught yourself to that extent if you didn't have the college structure. kind of like someone saying "ah, if I hadn't bought my house and paid a mortgage for the past 10 years, I'd have another $300k in the bank"...but would they have actually saved that much, or blown chunks of it on other thing?I learned quite a lot but it was mostly self-taught.
for most tech roles ppl only really care about whether you have relevant experience, not about whether you have a degreemeanwhile, google says "screw your college bullshit, all we need are people who can crunch data and do some UX design"

Do you happen to have links to some of these Corpsey? I've only read a few things of your serious institutional writing and it's fun to connect it to your dissensus / real life person.But also thereby enabling me to persist with apparently boring books that revealed themselves to be brilliant, and enabling me to write an incredibly popular rap reviews column for The Wire.
