A POLITICAL ECONOMY OF GLOBALISATION AND SECONDARY EDUCATION IN NIGERIA, WEST AFRICA

A.O.K. Noah

Abstract


This critique of the foreign-induced globalization effort in secondary education in Nigeria concludes that the attempt would further widen the gap between the rich and the poor, derail a genuine effort at fostering unity and nation-building. The paper canvasses an abandonment of the 2006 Unity Schools Reform (Charter) project, particularly as it is a poor imitation of the American Charter school concept. The paper is essentially on imperialism and the commoditization of education.

Keywords: globalization, education, Nigeria
