Times of Educational Change: Towards an Understanding of Patterns of Historical and Cultural Refraction
Goodson, Ivor F.
Journal of Education Policy, v25 n6 p767-775 Nov 2010
One area where the financial crisis has shown the limitation of neo-liberal thinking is the area of educational reform. By studying the different ranges of national responses and by understanding the differing contexts for educational change in historical periods, we can begin to think differently about educational restructuring. In this paper I report on some of the findings from a four-year study of educational reforms in seven European countries undertaken for the European Commission. The countries covered are: England and Wales, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Finland, Sweden and Greece and the research was conducted from 2004 to 2008. (Contains 3 tables and 1 note.)
