de Roock, Roberto Santiago; Espeña, Darlene Machell – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2018
This paper offers insights into the referencing of Singapore within the US Obama Administration educational discourse, underscoring the political-material-discursive nexus of international educational benchmarking. Using critical discourse analysis, we find that an objectified Singapore functions as a rhetorical tool of US policymaker agendas,…

Choo, Suzanne S. – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2017
Countering the drive to erect walls between nations and communities, the burden is increasingly on educators to develop in students essential skills and dispositions for a more hospitable future. Global education is essentially aimed at addressing the realities of increasingly networked societies and porous exchanges of knowledge, capital, and…

Tan, Liang See; Koh, Elizabeth; Lee, Shu Shing; Ponnusamy, Letchmi Devi; Tan, Keith Chiu Kian – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2017
Singapore's strong performance in international benchmarking studies--Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) and Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA)--poses a conundrum to researchers who view Singapore's pedagogy as characterized by the teaching of facts and procedures, and lacking in constructivist…

Xue, Mo; Chao, Xia; Kuntz, Aaron M. – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2015
Socialization as a theoretical concept has been increasingly applied to higher education over the past several decades.

Steiner-Khamsi, Gita – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2014
The article examines two key concepts in research on policy borrowing and lending that are often used to explain why and how educational reforms travel across national boundaries: reception and translation. The studies on reception analyse the political, economic, and cultural reasons that account for the attractiveness of a reform from elsewhere.…

Craig, Cheryl J. – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2013
Four narrative fragments involving research disseminated globally -- namely, United States, Israel, The Netherlands, The People's Republic of China -- are used to instantiate the phenomenon of teachers teaching their best-loved selves, without becoming the curriculum themselves. Next, the development of the best-loved self-conceptualization as it…

Education in the United States was in a state of "crisis" at the time of the 1983 release of "A Nation at Risk," the landmark report on the US education reform. This was the time when the rising Japanese economy started threatening the post-war US economic dominance and conservative figures such as Ronald Reagan gained popular…

Harris, Jessica; Zhao, Yong; Caldwell, Brian J. – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2009
In many ways, China's education system is quite different from systems of education in the West. Rich descriptions of school transformation, however, have revealed that the factors that fuelled transformation in schools in China are also evident in schools in Australia, England, Finland, Wales and the United States. This paper draws on an…

Takayama, Keita – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2008
This article challenges the common-sense observation that Japanese and American education have been moving in "opposite directions" in recent times. Drawing on postcolonial discourse studies and cultural studies, the article extracts from this observation an Orientalist binary epistemology that continues to set discursive limits on the…

Rizvi, Fazal – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2005
This paper discusses a range of issues concerning the idea of "brain drain" within the context of recent thinking on transnational mobility. It argues that the traditional analyses of brain drain are not sufficient, and that we can usefully approach the topic from a postcolonial perspective concerned with issues of identity, national…

Kai, Jiang – Asia Pacific Journal of Education, 2005
This article examines the center-periphery concept by focusing on the impact of educational transfer from the US to China on teaching reform in China's higher education institutions from the early 1980s to the present. As the scale and scope of the Sino-US exchange expanded, the impact on China deepened. This was especially evident in the…
