    D. BRENT EDWARDS JR. is an Assistant Professor of Theory and Methodology in the Study of Education at the University of Hawaii, Manoa. His work focuses on (a) the global governance of education and (b) education policy, politics and political economy, with a focus on low-income countries. Within these two research lines, Edwards has focused on investigating the rise of global education policies and the influence of international organizations, as well as trends related to educational privatization (e.g., charter schools, low-fee private schools), decentralization, and community participation. Geographically, these areas of focus have lead to research primarily in Mexico, Colombia, Central America (El Salvador, Honduras), and Southeast Asia (Cambodia, Indonesia, the Philippines).
