Contextualizing the closure of an urban community school

Contextualizing the closure of an urban community school: Ontario policy, municipal politics, and the erosion of citizenship
Recent research on school closures, particularly from the US, tends to emphasize the role of neoliberal policies. To what degree is neoliberalism a useful explanation for school closures in the Ontario policy context? This presentation examines the historical, geographic, political, and policy context of a recent school closure in Ottawa.
