9780415749862: Globalization of Education: An Introduction (Sociocultural, Political, and Historical Studies in Education)

Continuing Joel Spring’s reportage and analysis of the intersection of global forces and education, this text offers a comprehensive overview and synthesis of current research, theories, and models related to the topic. Written in his signature clear, narrative style, Spring introduces the processes, institutions, and forces by which schooling has been globalized and examines the impact of these forces on schooling in local contexts. Significant conceptual frameworks are added to this Second Edition, specifically the “economization of education,” “corporatization of education” and the “audit state.”  These concepts are embedded in the global educational plans of major organizations such as the World Bank, the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD), World Economic Forum, and multinational corporations.

 Globalization of Education, Second Edition features new and updated information on
· The World Bank
· OECD and the United Nations
· The World Trade Organization and the Global Culture of Higher Education
· Corporatization of Global Education
· Religious and Indigenous Education Models

About the Author:

Joel Spring is Professor at Queens College/City University of New York and the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, USA.

Review:

“Joel Spring’s critical approach to education challenges popular opinion and broadens our thinking. This book will leave you wanting to know more, think more, do more.”―Gina Zanolini Morrison, Wilkes University, USA

“...an eye-opening, pragmatic, and well-articulated discussion of contemporary policy, trends, and global change in education. Structured as a presentation of information rather than an argument, Spring effectively illuminates issues of cultural and corporate dominance, competitiveness, and inequality when examining macro-processes affecting global educational change and perspective in the 21st century.”―Karen Embry Jenlink, Stephen F. Austin State University, USA
