Rising from the Ashes: How the Global Education Policy of Community-Based Management Was Born from El Salvador's Civil War
Edwards, D. Brent, Jr.
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v13 n3 p411-432 2015
This paper explores the relationship between the emergence of global education policies and conflict-affected contexts by analysing the trajectory of community-level education decentralization within and beyond El Salvador from the 1980s, during the country's civil war, to the 2000s, by which point this approach to education governance was being widely promoted and adapted around the world. The findings--based on two years of data collection--demonstrate not only the way these contexts can be particularly susceptible to intervention by foreign governments and international organizations but also how, in certain historical-structural moments, those contexts can be transformed and leveraged to experiment with and to entrench certain policies.
