International Encyclopedia of Education, Fourth Edition updates readers on emerging interests and developments in the field. The book presents comprehensive reviews of research in various areas, but also includes illustrations/examples from regions, nations, locations--situated and contrastive (i.e., rather than exemplars serving transferability rather than generalizability avoiding standardization and homogenizations). In so doing, this encyclopedia can serve topic-specific purposes as well as be enlisted in a fashion which binds together separate entries. Sections provide comprehensive reviews and the state of research, theory and practice in a fashion that is both historic and developmental.
A pioneering resource which addresses internationalizing education research developments in conjunction with provoking regional and global scholarly understandings and reflections. Offers a comprehensive, thought-provoking and diverse understanding into the discipline of Education. It addresses the issues and topics presented in past editions and extends the work to global considerations.
