Summary/Abstract: We can be grateful to Michael Peters for giving us a very illuminating account of a variety of ways of conceptualizing partnerships, community and collaboration. Above all Peters’ boundless optimism is so refreshing when a critical viewpoint almost always leads to a skeptical view that “it won’t work,” when somehow, since we cannot roll back change, we have to make it work. Peters traverses a lot of ground that I won’t attempt to respond to. I will limit my observations to three elements that I think are vital to education: the notion of “community,” public private partnerships, and collaboration. In considering the effects of the changing nature of curriculum and governance in schools resulting from government’s changing desire to support and be supported by non-traditional agencies, I draw attention to the ontological project of many of these partnerships.
