Dussel, Inés – Educational Governance Research, 2018
In the last decade, one of the most remarkable traits in educational policies in Latin America has been the implementation of programs that produced a massive distribution of digital technologies as a way to promote the digital inclusion of the poorest segments of society. Pushed by transnational technological companies and organizations as well…

Lindblad, Sverker – Educational Governance Research, 2018
This chapter is dealing with transitions in the governing of schooling in Sweden.

Hultqvist, Elisabeth – Educational Governance Research, 2018
The chapter focuses on the implementation of the school choice reform in Swedish schools during the 1990s. The success of school choice, which is shown in the rapid expansion of the number of charter schools, is seen as a response to a "monopolistic policy", i.e. a school policy that is not aligned with the expectations of certain social…

Krejsler, John Benedicto; Olsson, Ulf; Petersson, Kenneth – Educational Governance Research, 2018
This chapter traces how national teacher education policy discourse in Denmark and Sweden is being transformed by opaque, albeit often inclusive, processes in transnational policy forums, such as the Bologna Process, OECD, and EU. This is facilitated by "soft law" surrounding the imagined needs of modern nations, if they are to succeed…

Simons, Maarten – Educational Governance Research, 2018
The transnational independent learner has become the new hero of the European learning space. In order to describe the mode of existence of the independent learner, an analysis in terms of deinstitutionalization falls short. Such analysis focuses on what disappeared but easily loses out of sight what comes instead. Especially in the case of the…

Lingard, Bob – Educational Governance Research, 2018
This chapter deals with the multiple scales, spaces and places of contemporary education policy reforms. The focus is on new non-state policy actors, namely, international organizations such as the OECD, and edu-businesses such as Pearson. The first case of the OECD's PISA demonstrates the lack of policy learning in relation to international data…

Cowen, Robert – Educational Governance Research, 2018
Educational reform can be an isolated event: laws may be passed in a particular country about new ways to certify teachers as fit to teach. Sometimes, there is a major flurry of educational reform through a national "Education Act," or perhaps a legal decision by a supreme court rewrites how education may be distributed within a…

Popkewitz, Thomas S. – Educational Governance Research, 2018
The chapter considers the globalization and transnational through examining reform as embodying standards. My use of standards is not in the publically stated goals of policy. They are in the principles generated in the making of the objects of reflection and administration of children. These standards relate historically to the rules and…

Olsson, Ulf; Petersson, Kenneth; Krejsler, John Benedicto – Educational Governance Research, 2018
The overall aim of this chapter is to problematise the contemporary transnational discourse about learning and pupil-centred learning which during recent decades have become givens or, perhaps it could be said, have become established as dogmas in the conversations, writings and thinking about ourselves, others, education, work and society. The…

Tröhler, Daniel – Educational Governance Research, 2018
Taking the example of the current educational reforms, that is, the harmonization of the Swiss education systems, this chapter engages with the paradoxical character of modern education policy that believes it enhances its agency by referring to the unshakeable basis of their policy, the "crystal-clear" facts or "data,"…

Alves, Ines F. – Educational Governance Research, 2018
This chapter presents a critical analysis of the transnational phenomenon of individualised educational planning for pupils 'with special educational needs'. Schools which were once targeted at a relatively homogeneous pupil population are now expected to include all pupils, namely, pupils with special educational needs (SEN). Transnational…

Hernández-Hernández, Fernando; Sancho-Gil, Juana M. – Educational Governance Research, 2018
In the last 40 years, Spain became from a country of emigrants to a destination for immigrants. The 0.46% of immigrants of 1975 (165,000 of 36,012,682 people) went up to 12% (5,598,691 of 46,063,511) in 2009. The sudden demographic, economic, social, cultural, political and educational consequences of this move have been considerable. In this…

Bjerg, Helle; Staunæs, Dorthe – Educational Governance Research, 2018
A recent national reform of the Danish public school facilitates a number of ongoing experiments in (re)organizing the school day in an attempt to potentialize the spaces in the shape of what we usually recognize as recess, breaks, and transitions. The reform may indeed be positioned within what have been termed the GERM or Global Educational…
