Sixteen contributions from academics in education, sociology, and planning--most based in Australia--discuss the ramifications of globalization for education and education systems around the world. The first essay--by editors Michael Apple (educational policy studies, U. of Wisconsin), Jane Kenway (global education studies, Monash U., Australia), and Micahel Singh (education, U. of Western Sydney, Australia)--gives an overview of the complexities of the topics addressed more specifically by the contributors, including theoretical understanding of the processes of globalization, the changing economic context of education, neoliberal governance and the enterprise culture, globalizing changes in knowledge production, changing teacher and student identities, and democratic purposes and public schooling
