Globalization and Its Impact on Education with Specific Reference to Education in South Africa
Moloi, K. C.; Gravett, S. J.; Petersen, N. F.
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v37 n2 p278-297 2009
As globalization of the world economy continues unabated, a parallel growth of globalization of knowledge is also taking place. This latter trend is little affected by the boundaries between developed and less developed countries and is having a particular impact on trends in education. This article looks at the impact of globalization within the context of education in South Africa. It focuses on different perspectives of globalization and identifies key factors that may have an impact on education in South Africa. Finally, it argues that in order to respond to the dangers of marginalization posed by globalization it will be crucial to form, and be part of, new alliances and networks. These will both provide opportunities for sharing knowledge and skills and also build economic strength. (Contains 1 note.)
