TL;DR: In this article, a set of generic "problems" which constitute the contemporary social, political and economic conditions for education and social policy making are adumbrated and the emergence of ideological and'magical' solutions to these problems is identified and the means of the dissemination of these solutions are discussed.
Abstract: In this paper the primary emphasis is upon the general and common elements in contemporary, international education policy, but nonetheless the discussion also considers the processes of translation and recontextualisation involved in the realisation or enactment of policy in specific national and local settings. A set of generic 'problems' which constitute the contemporary social, political and economic conditions for education and social policy making are adumbrated. The emergence of ideological and 'magical' solutions to these problems is identified and the means of the dissemination of these solutions are discussed. A relationship between the global market and the marketisation of education is suggested and explored.

TL;DR: This article argued that citizenship education should be reformulated to reflect the home cultures and languages of students from diverse groups, and argued that group rights can help individuals to attain structural equality, and discussed the implications of his analysis for transforming citizenship education.
Abstract: Worldwide immigration and quests for rights by minority groups have caused social scientists and educators to raise serious questions about liberal assimilationist conceptions of citizenship that historically have dominated citizenship education in nation-states. The author of this article challenges liberal assimilationist conceptions of citizenship and citizenship education. He argues that citizenship education should be reformed so that it reflects the home cultures and languages of students from diverse groups, and he contends that group rights can help individuals to attain structural equality. In the final part of the article, he discusses the implications of his analysis for transforming citizenship education.
