9780415989473: 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. Spring introduces readers to the processes, institutions, and forces by which schooling has been globalized and examines the impact of these forces on schooling in local contexts.

Designed for courses on globalization and education, international and comparative education, educational foundations, multicultural education, and educational policy, the text is written in a clear narrative style to engage readers in thoughtful consideration of topics discussed. Each chapter includes "Key Points" that summarize the content and suggest issues and questions for critical analysis, discussion, and debate.

About the Author:

Review:

"The book is well written and carefully researched. It is a useful resource for students and scholars seeking a detailed analysis of different globalization perspectives."--Comparative Education Review

"I would strongly recommend this book to audiences in higher education, educational policy, curriculum studies, and globalization studies (supplemented by other literature), because it contextualizes many of the educational issues we deal within global policy frameworks. . . This book not only answered my questions about the global superstructure but also provided an important reminder that we cannot simply ignore global processes in our evaluations of educational (including higher education) policies, practices, discourses, and curriculum in local contexts."―Review of Higher Education
