New Right Views of the Family

  • For New Right thinkers the state should be ‘rolled back’ and the free market left to coordinate society rather than the state intervening so muchNew Right
  • this same principle drives the marketisation of education
  • marketisation introduces the free-market to education and in the same way the free-market influences the function (purpose) of the family
  • in education the free market enables parents to make informed choices through market signals, about what school is best for their children
  • New Right ideas stress the importance of this individual responsibility, the right to choose, with the family
