Globalizing education policy by Fazal Rizvi( Book )
25 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and Spanish and held by 325 libraries worldwide
"In Globalizing Education Policy, the authors explore the key global drivers of policy change in education, and suggest that these do not operate in the same way in all nation-states. They examine the transformative effects of globalization on the discursive terrain within which educational policies are developed and enacted, arguing that this terrain is increasingly informed by a range of neo-liberal precepts which have fundamentally changed the ways in which we think about educational governance

Disability and the dilemmas of education and justice ( Book )
6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 254 libraries worldwide
Debates about the education of people with disabilities are fundamentally moral and political, linked to concerns of justice. Compassion, care and equality have been central themes. Yet the field of special education is largely devoid of any explicit treatment of the ways in which educational justice might be understood. The essays in this book address issues of educational justice as they relate to people with disabilities. They suggest the need to move beyond deficit conceptions of difference and equality of access, articulated in the language of service delivery based on professional care and compassion, to a politics of recognition embedded within a framework of rights and empowerment. The book is not located within a single disciplinary base. Rather, it draws upon a variety of disciplines, including philosophy, sociology, psychology and history in order to analyse issues concerning the relationship between disability, social justice and education. Equally it is international in scope, bringing together authors who have had a longstanding interest in issues of ethics, policy and practices of special education. It will be of interest and value to educationalists, social workers, researchers and policymakers

Administrative leadership and the democratic community as a social ideal by Fazal Rizvi( Book )
4 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Democratic participation in education suggests that communities will be served best when decision-making is decentralized and when people--teachers, parents, and students alike--are encouraged to participate directly in making decisions that affect them. In contrast, the notion of administrative leadership implies hierarchical elevation of chief executive to an extraordinary level of power, centralizing decision-making and control of resources in the hands of a few. It is argued in this essay that the possibility of democratic governance can be resurrected by illustrating that bureaucratic rationality, in the form of administrative hierarchy, is fundamentally mistaken and involves a language of political control through which political and moral claims are presented in the guise of technical necessity. Eighty-five references conclude the essay. Three readings on this topic complete the monograph: (1) "Democracy and Educational Administration" (J. Dewey); (2) "The Case for Decentralization" (P. Goodman); and (3) "Bureaucracy and Democracy" (D.F. Thompson). An annotated bibliography and information about the author are included. (Wth)
Encountering education in the global : the selected works of Fazal Rizvi by Fazal Rizvi( Book )
7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 49 libraries worldwide
"Born in India, Fazal Rizvi has lived and worked in a number of countries, including Australia, England and the United States. Most of his educational encounters have been 'in the global'. He has developed a keen sense of the multiple and conflicting ways in which transnational ties and interactions are transforming the spaces in which identities and cultures are forged and performed, and in which education takes place. Much of his research has sought to examine how educational systems around the world have interpreted and responded to the challenges and opportunities of globalization. In this collection of his papers, written over a period of more than two decades, Rizvi seeks to understand the shifting discourses and practices of globalization and education, critically examining the ways in which these are: - reshaping our sense of identity and citizenship, and our communities - creating transnational systems of ties, networks and exchange - taken into account in the development of policies and programs of educational reform - producing uneven social effects that benefit some communities more than others. Rizvi's analysis shows how recent global transformations have mostly been interpreted through the conceptual prism of a neo-liberal imaginary that have undermined education's democratic and cosmopolitan possibilities"--

Planning for international collaboration in higher education: a case study of a multi-institutional degree program by Mary Ann Frese Witt( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
The evidence of the increasing connection between higher education institutions around the globe is well documented, but what is less understood is how this connectivity is enacted or manifested on specific nodes of the global higher education network. The objective of this research is to examine the planning process of a multi-institutional graduate degree program in engineering between a research institution in the US and in Singapore, a new model of collaboration in international higher education. This qualitative case study explores the nature of connection between two partner institutions, adding a unique perspective to the literature on global networks of higher education. Examining the rationales, barriers and potentialities that emerge in the planning process of this multi-institutional degree finds both sides of the academic partnership exercising agency in the push-pull stream of global flows. Contrary to what neoliberal or center to periphery narratives of globalization might lead us to expect, strong national and local governments, culture, and social relationships all play determining roles in the negotiations and resulting form of collaboration between these higher education institutions. The global network of higher education has afforded a partnership that on one-side, allows a powerful state-driven agenda to flourish, while at the same time, on the other side, fills financial and policy gaps in an overburdened, bureaucratized, locally governed education system. The resultant collaboration moves beyond the historical interpretations of international partnerships. This study illuminates the value of examining particular places, incorporating diverse local experience into the narrative of global networks

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Governments around the world are trying to come to terms with new technologies, new social movements and a changing global economy. As a result, educational policy finds itself at the centre of a major political struggle between those who see it only for its instrumental outcomes and those who see its potential for human emancipation. This book is a successor to the best-selling Understanding Schooling (1988). It provides a readable account of how educational policies are developed by the state in response to broader social, cultural, economic and political changes which are takin
