This text explores how the dynamics of globalization and privatization have influenced State policy and impacted education reform in Honduras. Chapters document historical trends and the evolution of Honduras as a post-colonial nation, before looking in detail at recent State interventions in policy at pre-school, elementary, and secondary level. By offering empirical analysis of the Honduran education sector, the changing role and priorities of the State, and the increasing involvement of international organizations, NGOs, and private actors in the provision of education, the text increases understanding of how State theory interacts with broader global dynamics to impact education. This text will benefit researchers, academics, and educators with a focus on international and comparative education, policy analysis, globalization, and international development.
