About this item

International and Comparative Education offers detailed and wide-ranging illustrations of the ways in which comparison can illuminate our understanding of contemporary education systems by exploring issues in relation to specific educational sectors, from early-years and primary schooling, through to further, adult and higher education.

Key areas and debates examined include:

  • Alternative education provision
  • Early-years pedagogy and training
  • Spiritual, moral, social and cultural development in primary schooling
  • Work-related learning in secondary schools
  • The world of private tutoring
  • Economic austerity and further education
  • Apprenticeships and vocational education
  • Adult education and training
  • Higher education in a globalised world
  • Teacher training and international rankings.

Drawing on these wide-ranging themes across a number of national contexts to provoke critical thinking and reflection, each chapter includes discussion points and further reading, providing a valuable resource for all Education Studies students.
