Jerrold L. Kachur

Abstract


America and the world are facing an economic and political crisis which has important implications for domestic and global politics of education. The paper identifies the root of the crisis in the financialization of global capitalism and the declining hegemony of the United States in geopolitics. It establishes the relationship between the history of America’s Education Empire and the imperial role of the US as a superpower in the dominance, hegemony and governance of other great and regional powers. The article concludes with a focus on the role of the global intelligentsia, professors, teachers and community workers and the important opportunities that may arise for a more progressive politics to replace current neoliberal rule and Anglo-American myopia and hubris.
