Lubienski, Christopher; Perry, Laura B.; Kim, Jina; Canbolat, Yusuf – Comparative Education, 2022
In recent decades, policymakers around the globe have adopted market mechanisms such as consumer-style choice, provider autonomy and competition. Such policies may improve educational equity since families can choose options outside of their assigned local school. Yet research from multiple countries is finding a link between greater use of such…

Yoon, Ee-Seul; Grima, Victoria; DeWiele, Corinne E. Barrett; Skelton, Lucas – Comparative Education, 2022
This study assesses the extent to which public high schools become more or less socially mixed after families are allowed to choose schools outside their designated catchment areas in a mid-sized Canadian city. We draw on settler-colonial theory, critical human geography, and critical social theory while applying a critical mapping of school…

This study looks at segregation across the high schools of Santiago, Chile, and the levels of trust students hold in key institutions.

Sciffer, Michael G.; Perry, Laura B.; McConney, Andrew – Comparative Education, 2022
International research has consistently found that the socioeconomic segregation of schools may worsen inequalities in schooling outcomes through the socioeconomic compositional effect. This study examines whether the socioeconomic compositional effect varies between developed countries and potential mechanisms by which national schooling systems…

Hogan, Anna; Thompson, Greg; Mockler, Nicole – Comparative Education, 2022
In Anglophone countries, narratives of public schooling tend to emphasise generic hopes about schooling as central to the idea of a public good, including fostering community, delivering equality and protecting broad notions of democracy. However, as public systems become more open to privatised logics, these hopes sit alongside fears for the…

Shahjahan, Riyad A.; Bylsma, Paul E.; Singai, Chetan – Comparative Education, 2022
Global university rankings (GURs) have garnered increasing media attention since their inception. Yet to date, a concerted attempt to offer an affect lens -- emotions, responses, reactions and feelings that are relational and transpersonal -- underlying the mediatisation of GURs remains absent. Drawing on affect theories, we analysed the Indian…

Marginson, Simon – Comparative Education, 2022
In the last three decades, a networked global system has emerged in the natural-science-based disciplines, sustained by collegial epistemic relations in universities. Nationally ordered and funded science has expanded alongside the global science system. The common global pool of papers, defined by bibliometric collections, nevertheless excludes…

Holmén, Janne – Comparative Education, 2022
Due to their common history, Finland and Sweden share many similarities. However, important differences have also developed in constitutional law, political culture and governance models. These differences have affected the implementation of international trends in the governance of higher education in the two countries. Both the Finnish and…

Shibata, Masako – Comparative Education, 2022
This article examines how and why the US reconstructed Okinawa in Japan, with a focus on the theme of 'self' and 'others' in educational interaction. I argue that during the occupation of Okinawa, the US tried to detach Okinawa from Japan socio-culturally, using the historically based racial tensions between them by promoting the local 'Ryukyuan'…

Vickers, Edward; Morris, Paul – Comparative Education, 2022
Whilst Hong Kong's return to Chinese sovereignty in 1997 has influenced education in various ways, major reforms perceived as promoting mainland control have been resisted. For two decades, Hong Kong's educational autonomy under the 'one country, two systems' formula was thus largely maintained. This changed radically with the response to the…

Asadolahi, Salar; Farney, James; Triadafilopoulos, Triadafilos; White, Linda A. – Comparative Education, 2022
Across OECD countries, education choice is proliferating as parents seek and governments permit choice both inside and outside public education systems. The movement of students out of the common public school, however, varies significantly across jurisdictions and sociodemographic characteristics such as race and class. This variation in…

Anderson-Levitt, Kathryn – Comparative Education, 2021
This article examines the history of US movements for competencies, often called 'twenty-first century skills', in international context. Ironically, US actors were a source of early ideas about competencies but 'late' adopters of a competency-added reform--a partial and silent policy incorporated within the Common Core State Standards of 2010.…
