Slouching towards Decentralization: Consequences of Globalization for Curricular Control in National Education Systems.
Astiz, M. Fernanda; Wiseman, Alexander W.; Baker, David P.
Comparative Education Review, v46 n1 p66-88 Feb 2002
The mingling of economic and institutional globalization forces with existing national education structures produces various paradoxical mixes of decentralized and centralized educational administration. This is demonstrated through brief case studies of education in France, the United States, Colombia, and Spain, and quantitative analysis of data on governance and classroom implementation of eighth-grade mathematics curricula in 39 countries.
