This book attempts to examine the educational consequences of the recent social and economic situation in Greece, and it explores—on a general level—new possibilities for teaching and learning at times of national crisis. Using Greece as an exemplary case, Maria Chalari demonstrates how the relationship between neo-liberalism and education is especially salient during difficult times; it also demonstrates the effect of this relationship on teachers’ day-to-day experiences. By attending to, yet moving beyond, the negative implications of socio-economic crisis, this volume aims to present core educational values of the current era, as well as the crucial issues that may become opportunities for reflection and change.
