Education in a Global City: Essays from London maps recent education developments in the urban education environment of London. This book is designed and written to inform those who live and work in London but the contents will resonate with those who are operating in similar contexts in cities throughout the world. This innovative book written by leading academics and practitioners and edited by two education policy experts explores a multitude of themes and issues directly affected by the urban environment such as the quality of schools, staffing, governance, the development and reproduction of a skilled and qualified labour force and funding. Many big global cities share the same characteristics of complexity and diversity, extremes in wealth and poverty and high levels of immigration and mobility. This book is intended to contribute to our knowledge and understanding of what really works in urban education.
