From Library Journal:

This is the first new edition of the encyclopedia in ten years. The four volumes contain 257 new and revised articles, with extensive bibliographies written by some of the most prominent people in the field of education. Recent issues and developments receive comprehensive treatment. The broadened scope includes such topics as AIDS education, public choice, athletics in higher education, social factors in education, uses and abuses of testing, schooling of teenage parents, education of mobile populations, and women's education in the Third World. Existing topics are also changed (e.g., "Teachers and Teaching" from the fifth edition is divided into two separate headings: "Teachers" and "Teaching Instructional Systems and Strategies"). The sixth edition also reflects the growth of education as a research and academic discipline in its own right. Therefore, a major category, "Disciplinary Studies" (fifth edition), has been deleted. A special appendix entitled "Doing Library Research in Education" describes selected secondary sources such as encyclopedias and dictionaries, handbooks, indexing and abstracting services, CD-ROM sources, and dissertations. References within each article provide suggestions for additional research, and See Also references guide readers to associated entries. This edition, like its predecessors, will be useful to college students as well as educational researchers and practitioners and is recommended for undergraduate, graduate, and professional collections. Older editions should be saved for their historical significance (the fifth edition, which Macmillan published in 1982, is the only one still in print).
