Constructing Educational Quality in the Arab Region: A Bottom-Up Critique of Regional Educational Governance
Morgan, Clara
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v15 n4 p499-517 2017
The article challenges the deficit view in which education in the Arab region is portrayed by examining the process of educational regionalisation. It takes as its case study the Arab Regional Agenda for Improving Educational Quality in order to explore the construction of an educational quality space that uses data as a governance model. Drawing on critical theory and evidence collected from 70 interviews, I argue that such approaches promote globalised versions of what quality education means remaining blind to context. I suggest that improving educational quality in the region entails creating responsive approaches grounded in political and socio-economic contexts.
