During the 1990s, there are various concepts of development and normative orders that competed to influence education reforms in Egypt to assess the level of domestic consensus regarding internationally promoted educational reforms. The existence of domestic consensus on the core of development and the values of reform is crucial for the effective implementation, internalization, and eventually for the sustainability of the reform. Such consensus would lead to a high level of domestic consensus among domestic political and social actors, and increase the likelihood of their accepting the value system inherent in the forms. With a high level of domestic resonance, the reforms would require an incontestable position and face lower resistance to ideological levels. In a brief analysis, it illustrates thatthe Egyptian state has adopted elements of the neo-liberal approach in its educational reforms but has failed to link them to the ideological trends dominating the domestic intellectual scene.
