Purpose – The paper aims to put into context globalization as educational, economic, and technological relations, with attention to dimensions of variability and other problems associated with domination of western and northern post‐industrial developed nations on the developing world. Design/methodology/approach – The approach taken in this paper is that of a discussion of the issues. Findings – Education in its broadest functional terms prepares populaces for interaction within the social, economical, political, and cultural domains of daily life. Global education in its encompassing reach toward the macrocosm prepares populations in many countries to co‐exist, particularly with information age technological innovations. Such an overstatement or broad sweep of the maximum view of international education overlooks in‐depth understanding of the exercise of power in the international realm. Originality/value – The paper discusses the issues surrounding globalization, the economic gap between technologically trained workers and agrarian economies and the cultural divide caused by policies and assumptions.
