Globalization, Trade Agreements and Education

Globalization is about more than just the economy. Trade agreements have an impact beyond international exchanges of goods. Trade agreements are being used as a tool to commodify and privatize social rights, as well as to entrench inequality, both within countries and between countries. Public education does not on the surface seem like an area that should be affected by trade agreements. Unfortunately, trade agreements—both those in place and those proposed—do have a negative impact on public education.

Articles and links here present background about the impact of globalization and trade agreements in education. They also provide information about how the BCTF works with other organizations—in Canada and internationally—to defend public education in the face of globalization.
