With the expansion of knowledge economy worldwide, education and human capital is recognized as one of the most important parts of economic growth. In this course, we examine critical public policy issues regarding education and human resource policy from a global and comparative perspective. We first start the importance of the role of education to society as well as to individuals. We examine economic benefits of education and related side effects such as diploma disease, credentialism, and unemployment of highly educated young people. As most of the governments around the world spends substantial amount of public resource in education, we will study public school systems closely. Various issues related to public school system such as financing, governance structure, and allocation of resources will be discussed. Finally, we examine the emerging issue of internationalization of higher education such as brain drain, certification of foreign credits or diplomas, and global competition among universities.
