Summary

In the multinational, cosmopolitan society of today, education has reached a truly global level of importance. No longer can education be seen in isolation, as a single teacher in a school, nor even as a single curriculum or state school system. Today education exists as a series of political and policy related interactions; whether or not these interactions are with a schoolchild in class, between institutions in league tables, or through the global funding of a regional scheme, it is an international perspective on education policy that forms the guiding thread behind.This edited volume aims to bring together contributions from internationally renowned authors that analyse and reflect on the way policy borrowing and lending is configuring and reconfiguring the world of education. These interactions and policy changes are a subject of particular interest for an international yearbook in that they almost always permeated by global movements and issues and influenced by multinational bodies and practices. Its global and international answers explicitly or implicitly are also about the local and national.In this way the World Yearbook of Education 2012 brings together a diverse range of perspectives on education policy and offers a new collection of insights into the changes occurring across the world. It will specifically focus on:The political and economic reasons for policy borrowing,The agencies, international networks and regimes that instigate policy change,The process of borrowing and lending, from diffusion to agenda setting, and finallyThe impact of these systems, agendas and institutions on indigenous settings.This book will be of great benefit to educational researchers and policy experts, especially those interested in comparative and international educational studies. It will also be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students.
