This encyclopedia is the most current and exhaustive reference available on international education. It provides thorough, up-to-date coverage of key topics, concepts, and issues, as well as in-depth studies of approximately 180 national educational systems throughout the world. Articles examine education broadly and at all levels–from primary grades through higher education, formal to informal education, country studies to global organizations. The work is divided into two parts. Part I consists of important issues and broad themes that affect the social and political structures of educational systems worldwide, such as gender, cultural issues, curriculum, and the impact of technology on education. The second, more extensive part details educational systems throughout the world. Organized by region, there are individual country articles, accompanied by statistical tables, for nearly all nations of the world. Background historical and political information is provided along with discussions of contemporary educational issues and challenges for the future. All entries include references for further reading. This is a unique, interdisciplinary resource for students and educators–indeed, anyone interested in the state of education throughout the world–and its centrality to our future.
