Synopsis

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

Written by two leading scholars in the international and comparative education fields, this collection addresses current education policy trends at the global, regional, national, and local levels.

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

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
