Review:

In Global Issues in Education, professors Wiggan and Hutchison have assembled a stellar array of international scholars whose research and scholarship highlight the intersection of globalization with schooling, diversity, race, ethnicity, gender, and poverty. Solid in its substance and panoramic in its scope, the authors of this very important book critique schooling as a key institutional and discursive site where cultural forms and practices are constituted, transmitted, and transformed. With theintellectual and scholarly foundation provided by Wiggan and Hutchison, collectively, these authors critically assess how the political, social, and economic structures throughout the world have shaped the nature, content, and focus of schooling in various societies. The authors go beyond the dominant narratives within particular societies and their schooling systems, however, by specifically highlighting the consequences for minority (and historically marginalized) populations within these respective societies. While offering insightful intellectual and scholarly analysis, the authors also provide educators and students with the necessary theoretical and pedagogical tools in their quest to better understand how globalism intersects with race, gender, and (Jerome E.

Global Issues in Education is an important interdisciplinary book that addresses issues of race, class, ethnicity, and gender in a global educational context. The increasing interconnectedness of the world economy requires a globally-competent workforce and, for educators and students alike, this means being in educational settings with culturally and linguistically different others. Wiggan and Hutchison bring together leading experts to examine some of the important questions that educators and policy-makers confront as they endeavor to prepare a globally-compitent student body and, ultimately, a global citizenry. For example, what type of education should students receive in order to be better prepared for an international, multicultural society? With respect to educators, what kind of knowledge do they need in order to be well-prepared to teach in an increasingly globalized world? The series of essays in the book examine these and related questions, or, more broadly, the intersection of globalization, education, and issues of diversity. It is a must read for scholars interested in the minority intersections of race, ethnicity, culture and gender, and their influences on global education.
