Verger, Antoni – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2014
Globalization is profoundly altering the education policy landscape.

Varenne, Hervé – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2014
Tobin's work has been groundbreaking. Famously, he and his team put together a sophisticated comparative study of three ways of doing pre-school--in Japan, China, and the United States (1989). As such, this study has precedents in anthropology. What is unique in Tobin's work is that he got people from one place to comment on what they saw people…

Sobe, Noah W.; Kowalczyk, Jamie A. – Current Issues in Comparative Education, 2013
This article problematizes some of the ways that the issue of "context" has been treated in comparative education scholarship. We critique the cube approach recommended by Bray and Thomas (1995) as well as the common recirculations of Sadler's (1900) garden metaphor. Borrowing a set of analytic concepts from Bruno Latour (2004), we…
