What is found unique about this chapter is that it highlights the effect of globalization on the already struggling public school.; (6): The autor argues that governments "need to consider what social, educational, and economic objectives they want to encourage from the international trade in education, what principles should govern its regulation, and the best mechanisms to achieve these objectives."
