About this product
- DescriptionThis book explores how changes in the new world ecomy are affecting the education of male and female workers. Authors from Australia, Africa, Brazil, Europe, North America, and South Korea use methodologies--such as literature reviews, case studies, legislative analysis, evaluations of model delivery systems, and demographic profiles--to examine the current efforts of a number of nations around the world to transform vocational education and training (VET) programs into gender equitable institutions where female students are able to obtain skills necessary for successful and ecomically viable lives. The cross-national perspectives in this volume illuminate the meaning of VET equity theory and practice in the new ecomy. Gender equity in education is constructed differently from place to place depending on a variety of factors, including ecomic development and cultural traditions. Starting from this understanding that gender and culture are multifaceted, historically situated, and constructed around dominant ecomic and institutional structures, class identities, and social positions, as well as discursive practices, the book addresses central questions, such as: *What roles do schools play in the global ecomy? *Is there a parallel between an increasingly globalized ecomy and a viable universal concept of education for work? *What is the effect of a nation's financial condition, political system, and global ecomic posture on its training policies? *Are educational equity issues heightened or submerged in the new ecomy? The comparative perspective helps readers to more clearly analyze both tensions that arise as capitalist changes in the new ecomy are contested, resisted, or accommodated--and the impact upon education. In the Afterword, the editors identify overarching themes emerging from the volume and illuminate various comparative perspectives on gender and the new ecomy. Globalizing Education for Work: Comparative Perspectives on Gender and the New Ecomy brings together important information and analysis for researchers, students, and teachers in education, women's studies, and sociology; for vocational education and training professionals; and for policymakers and policy analysts in governmental and ngovernmental organizations. It is well suited as a text for a range of graduate courses in the fields of comparative and international education, politics of education, vocational educational policy, gender and education, and sociology of education.
