Education in Comparative Perspective: New Lessons from Around the World
York W. Bradshaw
E.J. Brill, 1997 - Comparative education. - 193 pages
The 9 articles in this volume look at a variety of educational issues around the world and examine what they say about current theories. Papers discuss critical substantive issues, such as the role of the state in the educational process, the importance of female education in the development process, the influence of a distinctive Asian model of education on the Asian "economic miracle" and vocational training systems. All papers relate substantive processes to theory in some way and are explicitly comparative, either by relating at least two countries or by making broader points in the fields of education and sociology. Together they cover topics and cases throughout different regions of the world, including Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe, as well as the United States.
