Chapter Summary

Chile appears to be the only country with one hundred percent privatized Higher Education. Chilean neoliberal policies were largely designed and executed during the military dictatorship and they contain elements of a redefinition of the most visible economical and technical aspects. The secondary students' movement is the most recent manifestation of social unrest throughout the country. The main achievement of the secondary students' movement was the change in government priorities over educational policies. Dictatorship repression was mainly targeted against social organizations and the self-educational processes developed by them. The student's social movement persisted beyond 2006 and was able to unite all educational actors pursuing the strengthening of public education. The neoliberal control mechanism is aimed mainly at the social base that suffers the most radical consequences of the system.

Keywords:Chilean neoliberal policies; public education; social movement; social participation
