Globalization and Education: Exploring Pedagogical and Curricular Issues and Implications. Introductory Essay.
Smits, Hans
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v46 n1 p1-6 Spr 2000
A continuation of colonialism, globalization's narrow focus on economics and free-market thinking reinforces modernist rationality and individualism and discounts how deeply all life is interconnected. Its effects on education are reflected in high stakes testing, emphasis on information technologies, and a discounting of non-Western cultures. Globalization in education is an ethical issue that is both local and global. (TD)
