Example text

We examine the implications for equity and inclusion when certain kinds of learning are given higher levels of esteem and status than others, arguing that hierarchies of learning exist between and within institutions as well as outside of them. Although we argue that different forms of learning are equally important, this does not erase the structures in place that reinforce the privileging of learning in higher education and the costs to individuals who do not participate in higher education. Furthermore, we will critique the value that is given to certain kinds of learning within higher education institutions especially as policy seems to be increasing levels of differentiation within HE through its emphasis on vocational learning for ‘widening participation’ students.

There are certain interconnected ontological issues between ‘learning’, ‘learner’ and ‘knowledge’ that deserve closer attention. The kind of knowledge that is privileged within the ‘knowledge society’ is (believed to be) scientific, rational, objective, specialised, technological and apolitical, traits that are closely tied up with masculinised, middle-classed and white racialised ways of being. On the other hand, within an increasingly service sector centred economy, certain feminised traits are required, including for example being friendly, providing ‘customer care’, being flexible, having generic sets of skills and being diligent at work.

Despite this, the advent of the new polytechnics was seen by many as the dawn of a new era, setting out to revolutionise higher education. With demands for education to step outside its ivory towers and into the lifelong learning agenda came greater hopes for more equal opportunities. Indeed, there were expectations amongst some that the universities would be unlikely to survive. Instead it was the polytechnics that disappeared. The Education Reform Act of 1988 first (in 1989) took the polytechnics out of local authority control and then in 1992 enabled the polytechnics to become universities or, more specifically, ‘new’ universities, perhaps still seen as ‘the comprehensive schools’ of higher education (Robinson 1968), with little but a change in name altering the status between ‘old’ and ‘new’ universities (Jackson 2004).
