Book Description

Presenting a wide range of new research from World Education Research Association (WERA)-affiliated scholars pertaining to democracy and education, this volume including topics such as school readiness in Mongolia, high stakes teacher evaluation policy in Japan, and family and community involvement in global educational advocacy.

This collection arrives at a time of extreme global challenges, leaving researchers, teachers, students, families and policymakers without a baseline of how to act, react and be proactive to stem the chronic flow of disruption to global education systems. These challenges require researchers worldwide to consider how evidence can support individuals and systems to buffer against extreme global health distress and conflict whilst simultaneously supporting continued functioning education systems and processes. Such processes must allow students, teachers, leaders, administrators, and members of the educational communities to retain positive self-esteem and maintain supportive relationships and systems that provide the appropriate conditions for such processes.

Global Perspectives on Education Research pulls together contributions from different contexts and cultures to distil vistas and research results that can enlighten a worldwide community of researchers, education professionals and practitioners, as well as policymakers and local, national or supra-national decision makers. This text is also the ideal companion for educators and leaders alike as they navigate the uncertainty within global health and social justice.
