Education, the new world order and national sovereignty

David Small
Vol 15, Number 1, p.70
This paper is an attempt to outline some concerns about the future of New Zealand education and to situate these within a broader analysis of what has become known as the 'new world order'. In so doing, I will discuss some of the dangerous implications of the trend towards globalisation that is being welcomed and promoted in New Zealand by groups such as ACT and the Business Roundtable. This discussion will begin with an analysis of the main dimensions of the new world order and the implications of current trends for notions of nationalism and internationalism.
