Deconstructing the "Magnetic" Properties of Neoliberal Politics of Education in Bahrain
Hayes, Aneta
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v15 n2 p175-187 2017
This article makes contributions to questions of why international transfers of programmes do not lead to the outcomes that nations engaging in them expect to gain. Using Bahrain as an example, it is argued that tensions arising from policy borrowing are rooted in the complexities of the political incoherence between the new teaching policies, the Kingdom's economic vision and educational aspirations of many locals that have been shaped by old political and employment settlements within the nation state. The research shows that educating for global development is not a "magnet" that equally attracts everyone.
