Simon Marginson, Richard James
Academic Monographs, Jan 1, 2008 - Education - 152 pages
When will the 'education revolution' really begin? Is the nation ready for the challenges of the global knowledge economy and the emerging centres of innovation around the world? What are the key problems and where are the policy solutions? These are the questions addressed in Education, Science and Public Policy, in which nine policy practitioners and educators shape the knowledge economy into bite-sized chunks for public policy debate. Contributors include Terry Moran, Maxine McKew, Collette Tayler, Barry McGaw, Shih Choon Fong, Simon Marginson, Michael Gallagher, Margaret Gardner and Ian Chubb.
