Education Reform and Education Policy in East Asia by Ka Ho Mok pdf free download

Education Reform and Education Policy in East Asia by Ka Ho Mok pdf free download. This book represents the fruit of my strong research interest in comparative education policy and the culmination of several years of research into the impact of globalization, privatization, and marketization on education in selected societies/countries in East Asia. I started my academic career in the early 1990s after returning from my PhD studies at the London School of Economics and Political Science, University of London. During my studies in London, I got the chance to learn from one of the most eminent professors of sociology of development, Leslie Sklair, who is my ex-supervisor and also the author of Sociology of the Global System.

I was greatly impressed by the work of Leslie, despite the fact that I did not engage in a PhD project related to globalization in the early 1990s. Nonetheless, I was exposed to the debates of globalization during my years of studying in London. Such a discourse has inevitably shaped my intellectual journey. When I started my academic career at the Department of Public and Social Administration of City University of Hong Kong in 1993, I was assigned to teach a course on comparative policy in the mid-1990s; at the time this subject area was entirely new to me. Nonetheless, the shift to teaching comparative policy has taken me to a new research field, driving me to make attempts to research topics related to development studies and comparative public policy.

In the past ten years, I have been researching on comparative education policy in East Asia, with particular reference to how globalization has affected education policy change, education reforms and education developments, and changing governance in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, and mainland China. By conducting research projects related to comparative education policy and changing governance, I have also been exposed to literature on educational changes and reforms in Western societies like the United Kingdom, the United States of America, and Australia and New Zealand in the Pacific region.

Undoubtedly, the exposure to comparative public policy has provoked my profound interest in comparing and contrasting education policy change and developments in the Asia Pacific region. This book is a collection of papers based upon the research findings generated from fieldwork, literature analysis, policy and document analysis, as well as the personal reflections of academics serving in the education sector. Some of the chapters are revised papers based upon some of my international journal articles/book chapters or internationally refereed conference papers; others are newly written for this volume.
