Anderson-Levitt has brought together a rich array of authors and case studies to show how globalizing trends and policies (such as standardized testing, or teacher autonomy) are appropriated and incorporated into the lived lives of schooling. The book is a model of scholarly engagement; it eschews polemic for a nuanced, yet critical interrogation of world culture theory's central postulates. While I find that I like other textbooks better, this is a book which I will certainly keep (unlike most of my textbooks) because it is engaging and insightful.

World culture theorists argue that Western-style schooling is global not only because it touches most children in the world today but because its diffusion has been seen, since the 1950s, as inevitable. Granted, classroom experience varies tremendously from country from to country and from the global North to the global South; indeed, it seems as though many children in the North would prefer to escape from school while many children in the South clamor to get in.

Local Meanings, Global Schooling: Anthropology and World Culture Theory by Kathryn AndersonLevitt. New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2003.

Is there one global culture of schooling, or many national and local cultures? Do educational reforms take school systems on diverging or parallel paths? These case studies from five continents use ethnography and history to challenge the sweeping claims of sociology's world culture theory (neo-institutionalism). They demonstrate how national ministries of education and local schools re-invent every reform. Yet the cases also show that teachers and local reformers operate 'within and against' global models. Anthropologists need to recognize the global presence in local schooling as well as local transformation of global models. This is a collection that scholars in the field of the anthropology of education will not want to be without.

Local Meanings, Global Schooling was purchased for a class that I am currently taking, but it is a very interesting read. While I find that I like other textbooks better, this is a book which I will certainly keep (unlike most of my textbooks) because it is engaging and insightful. It examines the global connectedness of education in the modern era, and does so in an authentic, objective voice. Different authors examine different aspects of globalization, and overall, it is an insightful book that does a nice job of examining the themes of globalized education in a fair and insightful manner.
