With Permission: Education Policy, Space and Everyday Globalisation in London's East End
Gulson, Kalervo N.
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v5 n2 p219-237 Jul 2007
This paper attempts to make sense of a public-private partnership in London's East End. I am interested in how policy directions, in terms of cultural practices, may operate as links between transnational corporations and education provision, and, additionally, how concepts of space and place provide possibilities for different understandings of educational policy change in local instances. I examine the philanthropic practices of a corporation and the practices of schools receiving this philanthropy, and suggest that these are practices of "everyday globalisation" occurring as part of a specific policy direction, Excellence in Cities. (Contains 2 figures and 8 notes.)
