This groundbreaking, comprehensive new text explores major issues in education today through international and intercultural research. Contributors draw on comparative research from the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East and touch upon such themes as the history and philosophy of comparative education, the right to education, teacher formation, alternative pedagogies, gender, international assessments, Indigenous knowledge, peace building, and global citizenship. The text features a vivid portrayal of global educational practices, contributions from preeminent scholars, and invaluable teaching resources. This is vital reading for teachers, teachers-in-training, and comparative education scholars.
