Globalization and Marketization in Education: A Comparative Analysis of Hong Kong and Singapore
'Education is a key component in international competitiveness, at the same time it is potentially vulnerable to the forces of globalization and internationalization. Professors Mok and Tan, in their intriguing analysis of school education and higher education in Hong Kong and Singapore, demonstrate the impact of market-based reform and global economic pressures. Their study also substantiates that domestic political institutions retain significant policy choice even in the face of globalization. This book should be read by everyone interested both in education policy and globalization.' - Jon Pierre, University of Goteborg, Sweden Globalization has effected tremendous change to the character and functions of education worldwide. This unique book focuses on its impact upon Hong Kong and Singapore, and how these two East Asian Tigers have responded to the strong global tide of marketization in shaping and developing their education policies. the authors discuss the way in which increasingly prominent tides of marketization, privatization, corporatization and decentralization have influenced the governance and management of education in these two Asian economies. They aim to identify and examine the crucial socio-historical, socio-economic and socio-political factors for education reforms initiated in the two societies in recent years.
