Summary Read First Chapter image missing

An examination of educational reform and change throughout the world, focusing on how issues of power and governance within states affect school practice and policy-making.

Focusing on comparative examination of educational reforms, this book explores the relation of state practices and educational knowledge to changes in culture and economics among nations. Countries with different state traditions and political regimes are studied to understand how national and global settings are interrelated in current restructuring of education and social welfare policies related to schooling. The regional cases focus on the policies of the European Union, restructuring efforts in Latin America, and family, child welfare, and early childhood policies in Eastern Europe. In addition, specific studies of national changes in Argentina, Great Britain, Germany, Russia, Tanzania, South Africa, and the U.S. are presented.

Educational Knowledge makes a unique contribution by bringing neo-Marxist theories, world systems, and post-modern cultural and political theories into a conversation about the changes that are occurring in the educational arena. This book will interest not only specialists in the field of education studying educational reform, but also economists, political scientists, sociologists, and comparative historians who examine the functioning of education within the larger context of modernization.

"Popkewitz has 'done it again' in my opinion, bringing together a collection of papers on contemporary 'state relations' and education that cannot be matched. The text is not only accessible and informative, but theoretically interesting as well. Particularly groundbreaking is the exemplification of diverse but 'complimentary' social theories of how to read 'public education' in this new age of globalization." -- Lynda Stone, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
