Local Meanings, Global Schooling: Anthropology and World Culture Theory [1ed.]140396162X, 9781403961624, 9781403980359

Author : Kathryn Anderson-Levitt
Description:These case studies from five continents use ethnography and history to challenge the sweeping claims of sociologys world culture theory (neo-institutionalism). They demonstrate how national ministries of education and local schools re-invent every reform. Yet the cases also show that teachers and local reformers operate within and against global models.
