Summary
"This volume - a major new contribution to Joel Spring's reportage and analysis of the intersection of global forces and education - offers a new paradigm for global school systems. Education for global economic competition is the prevailing goal of most national school systems. Spring argues that recent international studies by economists, social psychologists, and others on the social factors that support subjective well-being and longevity should serve as a call to arms to change education policy; the current industrial-consumer paradigm is not supportive of either happiness or long life."--BOOK JACKET
