Abstract

An argument will be made for the teaching of Marxist
economics. This will draw upon the intrinsic and instrumental aims of education, as well as other
literature in education. A case is made that Marxist
economics should be taught. This is based on Marxist
arguments against the orthodoxy, namely that it serves
capitalist interests; and also educational arguments
and the perceived ability of Marxist economics to meet
educational aims. It then moves on to discuss why it
is unlikely that Marxist economics will be taught in
this way.
