ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues in globalization and social justice in higher education and provides a framework for examining how public finance mechanisms can improve fairness in access to basic education programs that provide readiness for the science and technology workforce and to universities that provide entry to the middle class. A summary shows the developments among the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and developing nations. Observation showed manufacturing jobs decline in the U.S. and unchanged living standards for workers in developing nations due to globalization. The global transition expanded access to higher education and increased stratification with low-income students. Emphasis is given on the need for financial support for low-income students.
