Summary and Info
These case studies from five continents use ethnography and history to challenge the sweeping claims of sociology’s 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.
