This series seeks to understand how globalization has affected educational reform in K–12 and higher education systems in many countries in Latin America, North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, but also understand the promise and prospects of global citizenship education as part of the post 2015 development goals set by the United Nations.
The particular focus of the series is on teacher perceptions of how globalization has influenced citizenship education, and to what extent global citizenship education can be implemented in classrooms. This will include critical analysis of changing student demographics and behavior, administration, funding, pedagogy and curriculum, testing and accountability, and interactions of schools with commerce and the community. Starting with the everyday experiences and knowledge of participants in educational processes, we will offer insights that can then be generalized above the level of the research subjects and inform deeper understanding of how globalization is affecting teachers and students in 21st century classrooms.
