"This Education is Not for Our Students": Responses of Mexican Educators to Globalising Education Policies and Practices
Amanti, Cathy
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v15 n4 p531-544 2017
This article explores the relationship between travelling education policies and a 2008 Mexican high-school reform from the perspective of Mexican educators. Using an ethnographic approach, consisting of interviews, classroom and community observations, and document analysis, study findings show that the educators participating in this study contest the notion that education policies and practices can be seamlessly transferred from one locale to another. They also suggest that when they are transferred, locally responsive practices may be threatened.
