This book provides comparative information on how 28 national educational systems handle the tension between two major vectors of school reform: on the one hand, and emphasis on high common standards for the content and quality of education; on the other an emphasis upon school level decision making and consequent diversity among schools. How does educational freedom, in its various aspects, guide national policies? How do non-governmental schools deal with legal requirements for accountability, personnel policy, admissions criteria for pupils, curriculum and pedagogy? This book is the first of a two volume study which presents the first systematic account of how different systems throughout the world have sought to meet this challenge. Finding the Right Balance, Volume I will be of great interest to policymakers and specialists in educational law policy and administration.
