Education and the State: International Perspectives on a Changing Relationship


Education and the State: International Perspectives on a Changing Relationship. Edited by: Aubry, Carla; Geiss, Michael; Magyar-Haas, Veronika; Oelkers, Jürgen (2015). London: Routledge.

Abstract

In most countries in the world, school education is the business of the state. Even if forms and functions differ, the imparting of elementary knowledge is universally regarded as a public function. Yet this is neither self-evident nor self-explanatory. The degree of involvement of state agencies in the supervision, financing and organization of the school system sometimes varies so much that the usual assumption of a common understanding of ‘the state’ seems to be an illusion
