International Studies in Educational Inequality, Theory and Policy
Inequality is a marked and persistent feature of education systems, both in the developed and the developing worlds. Major gaps in opportunity and in outcomes have become more critical than in the past, thanks to the knowledge economy and globalization. This book examines the pursuit of equity as a goal of public policy through a series of national case-studies. It covers many different global contexts from the wealthiest to some of the poorest nations on earth. It therefore offers a broad range of different theoretical and methodological approaches and brings together extensive international experience in equity policy. Extensive references accompany each contribution and this work is published in three volumes which together form a set.
