Synopsis

Policy Debates in Comparative, International, and Development Education by W. Jacob

The complementary areas of comparative, international, and development education occupy a critical part of the landscape in educational policy debates in a global context. This volume brings together a distinguished group of international scholars and practitioners who focus on key policy issues in a variety of national settings throughout the regions of Asia/Pacific, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, North America, and Latin America. The topics they address are critical for the future of education in a globalized context and include issues such as social justice, quality assurance, governance, access and equity, marketization, and the role of new media and technology, among others.

Reviews

Firmly rooted in the classical literature of comparative education, this volume illustrates the field s coherence and comprehensive reach through a consideration of policy debates at all levels of education and in multiple countries and regions. Current and emerging issues, from EFA implementation to transnational higher education, are analyzed through a comparative lens, and integrated within a rich historical and sociological discourse. Contributors range from well-known names in the field to younger scholars who are already making their mark. - Ruth Hayhoe, University of Toronto
