This book critically examines the overall interplay between globalisation, social inequality and education. It explores conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches applicable in the research covering the State, globalisation, social stratification and education. The book, constructed against this pervasive anti-dialogical backdrop, aims to widen, deepen, and in some cases open, discourse related to globalisation, and new dimensions of social inequality in the global culture.
Explores conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches applicable in the research of the State, globalisation and social inequality
Examines central discourses surrounding the debate of cultural capital and social inequality in education
Illustrates how the relationship between the State and education policy affects current models and trends in schooling globally
Demonstrates ideological imperatives of globalisation, neo-liberal ideology and the State
Evaluates the ambivalent and problematic relationship between the State, education reforms and outcomes in education globally
