International and Remote Schooling: Global to Local Curriculum Policy Dynamics in Indonesia

The present paper fills a void in the literature by focusing on curriculum policy processes in schools that are both remote and international. It is based on an analysis of the complex interrelationships between international and remote education; between 'the global' and 'the local'. It maps the dynamics of curriculum policy processes in three remote international schools in Indonesia and their journey in adopting the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (IBPYP). Whilst the study reported was primarily focused on how teachers made meaning of the IBPYP and the micro-politics involved, the significance of accelerating globalization required an examination of accompanying national, regional and global influences embedded in the complex curriculum policy processes. The concept of a 'policy trajectory' provided a framework for the research. After analysis of findings, a model was constructed to capture the dynamics of curriculum policy processes along the entire trajectory from global to local levels.
