Policy Borrowing and Reform in Education : Globalized Processes and Local Contexts Hardback


This book addresses the intersections of globalization, policy borrowing, and educational reform.

Drawing upon multiple disciplines, it provides a comprehensive overview of globalization's history, processes, theories, and trends, both generally and in education specifically.

The book includes an in-depth discussion of policy borrowing, emphasizing its political nature, to provide an understanding of globalization's impact on education.

Portnoi interrogates the dominance of the Global North and the influence of the global governance organizations that serve as the core of the aid and development regime.

Using a critical perspective, Portnoi emphasizes the manner in which local agents intervene to mediate the forces of globalization.

The book provides a comprehensive foundation for students and scholars of comparative education and associated disciplines, including social foundations, educational policy, teacher education, higher education, globalization studies, sociology of education, and policy studies.
