ISJ November 2018: Cultural borderlands – Cultural dissonance in the international school


Michael Allen, from ISJ XX1 Nov. 2002

In reading the mission statements of most international schools, we are likely to find, as well as their academic philosophy, what might be called an international ideology, ideas such as encouraging international understanding, world-mindedness, cultural flexibility and so on. We would be very surprised to find the lack of a monitoring and evaluation system for stated academic aims, but our author’s researches have found very little evidence of coherent policy and evaluation for ideological outcomes.
