              Globalizing Educational Accountabilities (Hardback)

              This book fills a gap in the literature by focusing on globalization with regard to the rescaling of educational accountabilities, linked to international and national testing regimes and their impact. In particular, this book examines the impact and effects of this global framew...ork in two illustrative nations: Australia and Canada. The focus on these two nations, which have very different forms of federalism, allows for consideration of the rescaling of politics and policies in the context of globalization and for an analysis of the complex rescaling of educational accountabilities. It is the first book to document and analyse the multi-scalar, relational and differentiated effects in national schooling systems of this rescaling of educational accountability. The authors also consider the ways in which these accountability regimes have rearticulated social justice and equity policies within nations in reductive ways. It offers scholars and policy makers both a methodology and an epistemological framework grounded in critical policy sociology for doing education policy analysis in a time of neo-liberal globalization.

              This collection focuses on education policy in the context of globalisation and draws together influential research dealing with the interplay between education policy and globalisation. Globalisation and neo-liberalism in relation to education policy are addressed, as is the imp...act of the Global Financial Crisis; the recent rise of ethno-nationalism; and progressive challenges to neo-liberal hegemony. A number of chapters deal with the new spatialities instantiated by globalisation new technology, and consider the implications for education policy. Also discussed are global policy actors (such as the OECD, EU, and edu-businesses) in education policy; the significance of international large scale assessments to an emergent global policy field; refugees and education; English language policy and globalisation; off-shore schools; and the importance of affect in policy in the context of globalisation. The collection closes with two methodological contributions that consider the implications of globalisation in today's critical education policy analysis. The collection is brought together in a substantial introduction that traverses the literature and research on globalisation and education policy and also situates the chapters and approaches in the collection within the field. The chapters in this book were originally published as articles in various Taylor and Francis journals.

              Bourdieu and the Field of Education Policy: Understanding globalization, mediatization, implementation (Hardback)

              The work of the late French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu has had huge impact on the social sciences and the field of education studies. Within education, however, the main focus has been his early work on the reproduction of inequality through schooling which as made effective usa...ge of his concepts of habitus and capitals. But there has been much less utilization of his full range of conceptual tools; for example, the concepts of field and practice have been to some extent neglected. There has also been limited usage of his methodological approach, which he described as 'field work in philosophy', as well as neglect of its underpinning epistemology, which demands reflexivity on behalf of the researcher and a rejection of 'epistemological innocence'. In Bourdieu and the Fields of Education Policy, the authors utilize the entire raft of Bourdieu's 'thinking tools' and apply them to the study and analysis of education policy in a world of globalization, with its related flows, policyscapes, rapid communication and mediatization of processes of educational governance. The authors argue that in the context of both globalization and mediatization of education policy processes, Bourdieu's concept of field needs to be extended. This extension includes the development of the concept of a global education policy field, which has rescaled the governance of education policy within nations. It also includes the concept of cross-field effects to account for the impact of the logics of journalism upon education policy and policy processes. Bourdieu's work is also used to provide a productive account of issues in education policy implementation. This book thus breaks new ground methodologically and in terms of its application of Bourdieu specifically within education policy studies in the context of globalization and provides a new approach to education policy studies, derived from Bourdieu, and suitable for today's context of multilevel governance and post-national pressures.
