Reviews

"Containing current, comprehensive, and critical approaches to a wide range of international education issues, Comparative and International Education is a must-have for teacher education programs. New and experienced teachers will benefit from this revised text written by key scholars in the field… This is an essential text to make sense of the implications of globalization for teaching today."
—  Marianne Larsen, Faculty of Education, Western University

"This edited collection provides a needed link between international education research and the professional concerns of pre-service teachers and practicing educators. The diverse compilation of essays explores … educational issues in areas of the world often ignored in teacher education programs. The book stimulates readers to think comparatively about their own educational practices and experiences, encouraging teachers to think in new ways about common educational issues."
