Analysis and debate of issues emanating from the interaction of global challenges and local needs and their impact in education leadership and policy. Students will discuss how globalization is not a monolithic process and needs to be understood as a set of globalization processes of particular localities. In so doing students will unveil different forms of globalization (from the top and from below) and how local challenges have been determining different approaches towards schools. Issues such as the nationalization and internationalization of standards as well as the autonomy and interdependence of schools will be discussed with examples from real life situations.
