New Arenas of Education Governance: The Impact of International Organizations and Markets
Kerstin Martens, Alessandra Rusconi, Kathrin Leuze
Palgrave Macmillan, Nov 15, 2007 - Political Science - 256 pages
Education policy-making has become a 'hot topic' in many industrialized countries today. Through initiatives by international organizations, such as the OECD's PISA study or the consequences of the GATS negotiations for the marketization in education, this policy field has moved up the political agenda. Few studies, however, have actually tackled these changes in a comprehensive way. This volume provides the most detailed overview of current phenomena in education policy-making and fills a major gap in the academic literature.
