Jules, Tavis D.; Arnold, Richard; Donnelley-Power, Caitlin; Jacobs, Holly; Rainey, Madeline – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2022
This paper uses a Cultural Political Economy (CPE) framework to apply CPE's concept of the "economic imaginary" to the educational policy landscape.

Kang, Seulgi – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2020
The unification of South Korea and North Korea is a plausible idea yet it requires a comprehensive preparation in advance. As a method to achieve fiscal efficiency in public services, decentralization theory is consistently applied. However, the current literature and political reality argue that decentralization does not always hold its…

Jules, Tavis D. – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2020
This article builds upon Robert Cowen's (1996) work on educational coding in transitological settings and post-spaces by deciphering the efficacy of political and economic compressions in Tunisia from the French protectorate period to the 2011 post-Jasmine revolution.

Milovanovitch, Mihaylo – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2019
In this article we present results from research on how education environments may influence the propensity of education participants to engage in corrupt practices. We approached this task with the help of a conceptual framework that draws on rational choice and routine activity theory, and on economic models of human behaviour. The framework…

Tobin, Joseph – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2014
Most qualitative studies in international education take place in a single site in a single nation. When studies are of more than one country, they most often use more quantitative than qualitative approaches. Beatrice and John Whiting conducted the most systematic of comparative cross-cultural studies of child rearing in their "Six…

Wright, Beth – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2013
School choice policies, as neoliberal reforms, have often been analyzed using the very discourse embedded in neoliberal mentalities.

Welsh, Richard O. – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2012
Between 1960 and 2010, Singapore's real gross domestic product (GDP) per capita skyrocketed from $4,383 to $55,862, while Jamaica's barely increased from $6,417 to $8,539. It is plausible that differing rates of GDP growth are associated with differences in the development of education systems but causally the linkage is not well understood. Using…

Klees, Steven J. – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2010
While there are areas of disagreement in the responses to this author's earlier article [Klees, "Aid, Development, and Education," "Current Issues in Comparative Education," v13(1) 7-28 2010], he finds that the disagreements are much less important than the commonalities. He tries to detail both in this reply, but he focuses on how he and his…

Shafiq, M. Najeeb – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2010
This article first provides an economic framework for understanding how an economic crisis affects children's educational outcomes; this framework shows that there are both negative (harmful) effects and positive (beneficial) effects on educational outcomes. A review of the empirical evidence suggests that the negative effects are typically…

Ilon, Lynn – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2008
"Can NGOs provide alternative development in a market-based system of global economics?" Today, a full ten years after the author first asked this question, individuals still have only partial answers. There is no doubt that NGOs are playing in a more significant role in global ODA (overseas development assistance). While the reasons for supply of…
