It is clear from cross-national investigations that the concern with values education is universal, but that national approaches to the critical questions confronting value educators are extraordinarily diverse. This volume begins by examining the context of the revival of values education, and asks why it is gaining new impact in national and local educational systems. Chapter 2 helps to locate values education in its historical time and place. The case studies presented in Chapters 3-9 provide examples of the major variations in national practice in Asia and the West; and the concluding chapter identifies many of the options open to educational leaders. The aim of the book is to provide both practitioners and scholars with insights into the latest developments so that they can approach their work with broader vision and compassion.
