The growing impact of globalization has affected educational development in many parts of the globe. In order to maintain national competitiveness in the global marketplace, governments across the world have started to review their education systems and introduce different reform initiatives in education in order to enhance the global capacity of their citizens. This book adopts the wider perspective of globalization in order to examine and critically reflect upon the origin, evolution and development of the Quality Education Movement in Hong Kong. It pays particular attention to how Hong Kong's education has been affected by the global trend to economic rationalism and managerialism. More specifically, the major aim of this book is to examine and analyse the most recent reform measures adopted by the HKSAR in its quest for quality education in Hong Kong. This book is divided into four parts. Part One provides the theoretical/conceptual framework and historical context for the book. Part Two focuses on approaches to quality education. Part Three focuses on policy change and education reforms that are operationalized in school and higher education institutions. Part Four is a reflection and conclusion. The editors discuss the impacts and the costs of managerialism in the education sector, and suggest the kind of policy implications it might have when adopting a managerial approach in education.
