Global Education Policy Directives: Impact on Teachers from the North and South
Vongalis, Athena
International Education Journal, v5 n4 p488-501 2004
Education policies from international organisations such as the World Bank and OECD are restructuring education to promote a utilitarian vision of education. By examining the experiences and opinions of teachers from countries representing north-south global regions, it is possible to identify the social and political implications of education reform as it impacts on teachers as not only practitioners, but also as social and political agents. As global communities are more inexorably linked through global, macro policies, an outcome of this trend is a growing political and social divide between the global north and south. The paper aims to identify and discuss the significant concerns of teachers from the global north and south in relation to education reform. (Contains 1 table, 2 figures, and 2 footnotes.)
