Education in Global Context

Series Editor: Lois Weis

Education in Global Context takes seriously the transnational migration of commerce, capital and peoples, and the implications of such for education and social structure in global context. Globalization—in the world economy, in patterns of migration, and increasingly in education—affects all of us.

This series underscores the consequences of the global both internationally and here at home while simultaneously stressing the importance of a paradigmatic shift in our understanding of schooling and social/economic arrangements.
