Title How PISA becomes transformed into a Nationalistic Project : Reflections upon a Swedish "School Crisis"
Author(s) Ideland, Malin
Date 2014
English abstract
This is a commentary of an article in the same journal, Robert Cowens "With the exception of Switzerland. Thoughts about the nation and educational research". In this article Cowen invites the reader to reconsider the notions of “nation” and “space” in educational research, in a time when comparative education and large scale assessments are colonizing the edu-political arena. From this point, I problematize the idea of international harmonization of education, and reflect upon how PISA has (even further) strengthened the idea of education as a na-tionalistic project. The main thesis is that through the rhetoric of internationalization, the nation as a unity become stabilized.
