About this book

The focus of this book is to examine the growing impact of globalization on education policy and development in the Asia Pacific region. It analyses the reaction of selected societies and the strategies that their governments have adopted in response to the tidal wave of marketization, corporization, commercialization and privatization. Particular attention is paid to educational restructuring in the context of globalization.
