Last Past the Post: Comparative Education, Modernity and Perhaps Post-modernity.
Cowen, Robert
Comparative Education, v32 n2 p151-70 Jun 1996
Comparative education is late in addressing postmodern issues because of its traditional theoretical orientation and focus on practice and policy. Ideal-typical models illustrate how "modern" educational goals based on notions of national culture and a social contract are being replaced by postmodern emphases on efficiency and international competition. Suggests a comparative education research agenda. Contains 99 references. (SV)
