Education cannot be understood today without recognizing that nearly all educational policies and practices are strongly influenced by an increasingly integrated international economy. Reforms in one country have significant effects in others, just as immigration and population tides from one area to another have tremendous impacts on what counts as official knowledge and responsive and effective education. But what are the realities of these global crises that so many people are experiencing and how do their effects on education resonate throughout the world?

Global Crises, Social Justice, and Education looks into the ways we understand globalization and education by getting specific about what committed educators can do to counter the relations of dominance and subordination around the world. From some of the world’s leading critical educators and activists, this timely new collection provides thorough and detailed analyses of four specific centers of global crisis: the United States, Japan, Israel/Palestine, and Mexico. Each chapter engages in a powerful and critical analysis of what exactly is occurring in these regions and counters with an equally compelling critical portrayal of the educational work being done to interrupt global dominance and subordination. Without settling for vague ideas or romantic slogans of hope, Global Crises, Social Justice, and Education offers real, concrete examples and strategies that will contribute to ongoing movements and counter-hegemonic struggles already active in education today.

About the Author:

Michael W. Apple is John Bascom Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Educational Policy Studies at the University of Wisonsin-Madison.

Review:

"I am always delighted to find scholarly work that connects dots in educational contexts around the planet. Michael Apple's book does just that."--Education Review

" Distinguished scholar Michael Apple has done it again! His book is solid and compassionate. It is documented and analytical, and more importantly it is as theoretical as it is a call for action and change. A great contribution."--Dr. Carlos Alberto Torres, Professor of Social Sciences and Comparative Education, UCLA; Director, Paulo Freire Institute

"With a combination of a potent theoretical framework and serious empirical work, this volume offers a fresh and nuanced take on the relation between globalization and education, dealing with the concrete ways people experience it."--Luis Armando Gandin, Professor of Sociology of Education, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil

"In Global Crises, Social Justice and Education, Apple and his colleagues put before us a compelling set of accounts of education as a site of now globalizing political and social struggles. This collection offers us inspiration and hope, as well as a set of principles which might guide our struggles."--Susan Robertson, Professor Sociology of Education, University of Bristol, UK
