The year 1989 marked the official end of communist rule in Poland and the replacement of "Gosplan" by new instruments for liberal-democratic governance.

Ehren, Melanie C. M.; Eddy-Spicer, David; Bangpan, Mukdarut; Reid, Andy – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017

Komatsu, Hikaru; Rappleye, Jeremy – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017
In this Forum article, Komatsu and Rappleye report that the results of PISA 2015 released December 2016 revealed a major oddity: reading scores in several of the "leading" East Asian countries had apparently plummeted. An interesting point is that Japan, Taiwan, Korea and Hong Kong are among the most advanced technological societies in…

Hunter, Mark – Compare: A Journal of Comparative and International Education, 2017
From the 1980s and 1990s, governments around the world began to champion "parental choice" over schooling. Much of the existing scholarship has been based on examples taken from the global North.
