Research output: Contribution to journalSpecial issuepeer-review


As International Competitiveness is viewed as a top priority on the political agenda in the epoch of globalization, many governments have initiated education reforms focusing on improving the quality of human capital. Accordingly, this context comes to remold the state’s role in education shifting from social justice to efficiency. This great change may exaggerate education inequity and this situation, in turn, stimulates academics to develop strategies for improvement. In light of these possible developments in education, this special issue entitled “Neoliberalism, Education Inequity and Improvement” sets out to call for empirical papers related to the below issues:
a. Neoliberalism and education reform
b. International competitiveness, human capital and education
c. Performance management and teaching professionalism
d. Parental participation in education
e. Disadvantaged group and education action
f. Education inequity and improvement
g. Enhanced pedagogy and cooperative learning
h. Student-based pedagogy
