Capitalism Reaches its Ugly Claw into Recess
This is appalling: capitalist invasion by way of neoliberal privatising of playtime at recess and noon. Isn't it bad enough that we have a class division for families outside the school yard between the haves and the have-nots? Do we have to commodify and commoditize our children and their playtime so intrusively in the name of capitalist enterprise too, thereby creating - because of their young age - a powerful ideologically conditioned class system at the childhood level? Class is already everywhere for a child in our neoliberal world. Why enhance it. Rise up, parents.
