9780130868480: Comparative Education: Exploring Issues in International Context

A welcome addition to the field, this rigorous, scholarly book departs from the traditional viewpoint of educational systems and structural analysis to thoroughly explore comparative education from an issues orientation. Content is built upon analytical frameworks that address four fundamental educational issues: the purposes of schooling, access to and opportunities for education, accountability and authority in education, and educator professionalism. After an introduction to the field and to prevailing theories in educational policy and practice, the book examines each educational issue in relation to two different countries, the better to foster comparison and contrasting. This book takes a cross-cultural perspective by examining eight countries: Hong Kong, Israel, Brazil, South Africa, Germany, England, Japan, and the United States and provides country overviews which include location, demographics, government and politics and educational processes. For professionals in the field of Comparative or International Education.

From the Back Cover:

Comparative Educationinvites readers to consider theory in comparative education, purposes of schooling, educational access and opportunity, education accountability and authority, teacher professionalism, and how globalization is impacting education. Taking an issues-based approach, it addresses current educational concerns both at home and abroad, and includes analytic frameworks that foster critical thinking and reinforce a systematic method for examination. Biographical sketches add human interest and side-by-side comparisons explore various countries' demographic attributes, geophysical and economic realities, and socio political factors. Because the book focuses on issues instead of countries, it reinforces how and why comparative education is relevant for educators in today's global society.
