Critical Education for Systemic Change: A World-Systems Analysis Perspective
Griffiths, Tom G.
Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies, v13 n3 p163-177 Dec 2015
This paper both draws on, and seeks to apply, world-systems analysis to a broad, critical education project that builds mass schooling's potential contribution to the process of world-systemic change. In short, this is done by first setting out the world-systems analysis account of the current state, and period of transition, of the capitalist world-system, followed by some initial consideration of strategies for curricular reform within systems of mass schooling that might contribute to a transition toward a most equal, just and democratic, a socialist, alternative world-system. These considerations intended as contributions to discussion and debate within the critical education community about what might be possible within the boundaries of existing systems of mass schooling, inspired by a world-systems perspective on an uncertain transition toward a non-capitalist future.
