Education Governance and Social Integration and Exclusion: National Cases of Educational Systems and Recent Reforms. Uppsala Reports on Education 34.
Lindblad, Sverker, Ed.; Popkewitz, Thomas S., Ed.
This is the first report from the Education Governance and Social Integration and Exclusion (EGSIE) research project. The project focuses on relations between education governance on one side, and social integration and exclusion on the other. Educational reforms and changes in the governance of education are examined in 10 case studies in Australia, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. These case studies are based on analysis of official texts and national statistics in combination with research reviews in each country. Recent changes in ways to govern education are described. Different ways have been found to restructure education in different national cases as well as different routes in dealing with social integration and exclusion. Similarities are noted in discourses on education governance in different contexts. International organizations also play a vital part in education policy discourses in national contexts. This report provides the initial discussion into developing conceptual and methodological strategies for the future project. (Author/RT)
