Abstract

This article offers a theoretical contribution highlighting the need to understand the origins and dynamics of the State when researching the intersections between globalization, privatization, and education in postcolonial contexts. Based on the case of Honduras and as part of a more extensive study, the article draws methodologically on in-depth interviews with policymakers and stakeholders, a review of historical sources, and a theoretical examination of studies on global educational policy, international political economy, world-systems theory, and post-colonial studies. Our analysis leads to the conceptualization of what is called the “ethos of privatization”, a form of privatization inherent to the post-colonial State that explains how private benefit is the logic that drives the system.
