The question of quality has become one of the most important framing factors in education and has been of growing interest to international organisations
and national policymakers for decades. Politics of Quality in Education focuses
on Brazil, China, and Russia, part of the so-called emerging nations’ BRICS
block, and draws on a four-year project to develop a new theoretical and
methodological approach.
The book builds a comparative, sociohistorical, and transnational understanding
of political relations in education, with a particular focus on the policies and
practices of quality assurance and evaluation (QAE). Tracking QAE processes
from international organisations to individual schools, contributors analyse how
QAE changes the dynamics in the roles of state, expertise, and governance. The
book demonstrates how national and sub-national actors play a central role in
the adaptation, modification, or rejection of transnational policies.
Politics of Quality in Education will be of great interest to academics, researchers,
and postgraduate students engaged in the study of comparative and international
education, as well as educational policy and politics. It should also be essential
reading for practitioners and policymakers.
