Yemini, Miri; Maxwell, Claire – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
In this article, we focus on the transformations imposed on schools by individual parents, arguing that schools as modern organisations change not only through top-down pressures orchestrated by an array of international organisations, for-profit companies and media as shown in previous research, but also through the agency of mobile parents, who…

Edwards, D. Brent; Moschetti, Mauro – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
For international organisations in the global education policy field, legitimacy is based in large part on the supposed techno-rational basis of these organisations and their ability to credibly produce knowledge and policy expertise. However, as the present article demonstrates, there are clearly a range of macro-micro organisational dynamics…

Bromley, Patricia; Overbey, Lisa; Furuta, Jared; Kijima, Rie – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
The liberal and neoliberal world order is increasingly under attack. Global levels of democracy have been declining for over a decade, accompanied by rollbacks in some kinds of rights. We examine the implications of increasing criticisms of the (neo)-liberal era over time for educational reform discourse around the world by drawing on a unique…

Berkovich, Izhak; Benoliel, Pascale – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
This paper explores the OECD framing of the role of the school leader in a series of its publications, drawing on role theory, using critical analysis of how school leaders' roles are represented in a body of OECD texts. The research findings provide insight into the multi-faceted portrayal of the 'ideal' role of school leadership as framed by the…

Choi, Minju; D'Apice, Hannah K.; Skinner, Nadine Ann – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
This paper examines how organisations have increasingly been portrayed in textbooks as solving social problems as well as contributing to national development. Findings from 527 Canadian and U.S. textbooks illustrate the rise of an organisational society during the time period between 1836 and 2011. Discussions of for-profit and non-profit forms…

Mizrahi-Shtelman, Ravit – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
Based on an in-depth analysis of newspaper articles and internal documents, in this article I examine the formation of a new collective and glocal identity for the Israeli principals' organisation, "Manhigim," which was established in October 2018. I show how, in the process of establishing the organisation, the leaders formed a…

Moreno-Salto, Israel; Robertson, Susan L. – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
There is now an extensive body of research concerning the OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), and its recent additions and variations. Despite this, we argue that there is a paucity of theory-informed empirical research on the ways in which the PISA results about a nation's education system both circulate within, and are…

Auld, Euan; Morris, Paul – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
This paper applies insights from narrative theory to analyse the OECD's transition to providing humanitarian large-scale assessments under the SDGs, situating this within the evolving dynamics of a global development complex. The perspective is guided by the thematic interests of the special issue, with the goal of enriching understanding of both…

Robertson, Susan L. – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
In 2018 the OECD added a set of global competence measures to its PISA programme, and reported on the outcomes in November 2020. In this paper I explore the provenance of the idea of global competence underpinning the OECD-PISA Global Competence framework and measure. The official account by the OECD references the OECD PISA Governing Board,…

Drawing on archival sources, interviews, and research literature, this article offers new insights into the making, structure and long-term effects of the International Educational Indicators (INES) programme of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). The article argues that INES was crucial in setting the OECD on the…

Tröhler, Daniel; Maricic, Veronika – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
This paper explores the unheeded religious roots of the modern conviction to standardised, scientific education policy and its inherent sciento-social epistemology. In doing so, it traces the discursive roots of this hierarchical but non-governmental idea of social governance from its 16th century Scottish Presbyterian predecessors to its…

Komatsu, Hikaru; Rappleye, Jeremy – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
The OECD's PISA exercise has by now been widely critiqued. Whilst we agree with most concerns, we begin with the assumption that PISA will remain an enduring and powerful feature of the global educational landscape. Even if the PISA test itself were discontinued, a similar large-scale quantitative assessment exercise would soon arise to take its…

Hof, Barbara; Bürgi, Regula – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
Computer education was an integral part of curriculum development and a priority of the OECD's policy agenda at the turn of the 1970s. Based on an analysis of archival documents, programme overviews and publications, this article describes how the introduction of computers in the classroom was advocated by the OECD and, more specifically, how this…

Takayama, Keita; Lingard, Bob – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
This paper traces the complexities, contingencies and tensions involved in the creation of a new, 'scientific' assessment in what we call Prefecture A in Japan. We start with a thick, granular description of the complicated and ongoing narrative of a new policy emergence. This descriptive account serves as a precursor to our application of an…

Seitzer, Helen; Niemann, Dennis; Martens, Kerstin – Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2021
The OECD has become a major driver of domestic education reforms, especially since the establishment of PISA. However, we know very little about the contextualisation of PISA within the publication output of the OECD, and what ideas of education the IO is spreading. In this article, we explore the entire thematic portfolio of the OECD's education…
