One of the fundamental debates within sociology of education (and educational policy and curriculum) in Britain and the United States currently centers around the collision between Marxism and postmodernism. Over the last thirty years the ground has been hotly contested, with first Marxism and the postmodernism claiming the upper hand; now there is a heated contest between the two. Both postmodernists and Marxists make claims for the promotion of social change and social justice; and both have views on how education systems in these societies are run and how they could and should be run. However, postmodernism and Marxism are theoretically at loggerheads. In this book, the author considers the origins and developments within the evolution of Marxist theory and postmodern theory. He analyzes how Marxism and postmodernism articulate in very different fashions the directions in which education systems should be run. He then moves from the theoretical to the praxiological arenas of policy and pedagogy - what is a Postmodern School? What would a postmodern classroom be like? Finally, he situates it all within the context of debate about globalization and the future: Is globalization a new phenomenon? Is it a postmodernist phenomenon? Can it be a force for the good? Is Marxism the only viable alternative in the future of the planet? What is the role of education in all this?
