Abstract

This guide accompanies the following article: Fevre, R., Guimarães, M. I. & Zhou, W. “Parents, individualism and education: three paradigms and four countries”, Review of Education, https://doi.org/10.1002/rev3.3204 Common explanations of the global expansion of education are a good fit with one of three paradigms: neoinstitutionalism, political economy, or functionalism. This article puts them to the test by analysing the internal logic, contradictions and predictions of each paradigm in three areas: parental influences on children’s experiences of education (broadly defined), the meaning and role of the notion of individualism, and the underlying changes in society of which educational expansion is an expression. We then test each paradigm with empirical evidence on parental influences from four countries around the world. We conclude that, while the most promising research has been conducted within the political economy paradigm, developing a nuanced understanding of individualism is crucial to our understanding of the role of parents in global educational expansion.
