Global Issues and Comparative Education Paperback
Edited by Wendy Bignold, Liz Gayton
Part of the Perspectives in Education Studies Series series
Almost every Education Studies degree includes an element of comparative education, and this book provides an accessible undergraduate-level introduction to the theme.
It begins by defining what is meant by the term 'comparative education' and examines the benefits of studying it to students, policy makers, educators and academics.
The book then takes a largely age-phase approach with a comparative analysis of selected education systems from around the world, including the impact of globalisation.
