about this item

Geography of Education sets out the scope of this emergent, interdisciplinary field. It illustrates the essential affinity of geographical and educational studies, by emphasising the geographical factors influencing educational systems and other forms of knowledge transfer.

Discussing formal, informal and non-formal modes of education, the book covers the emergence of systems of schooling under the influence of religious, political and economic forces. Nationalism, internationalism and globalisation with regard to the comparison and transfer of educational policies are considered. Such themes are exemplified by an analysis of global factors, including the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and world university rankings.

Highlighting the spatial implications of alternative education policies and the relevance of cultural and political geography, Colin Brock argues that the geographical approach should inform the evolution of all types of educational provision around the world.
