Description

The Routledge International Companion to Education addresses the key issues underpinning the rethinking and restructuring of education at the beginning of the new millennium. The volume contains over fifty major contributions exploring a wide range of issues, including:

* philosophy of education

* the economics and resourcing of education

* testing and assessment: current issues and future prospects

* standards

* multiculturalism

* anti-racism

* computers in classrooms

* mother tongue education

* civics and moral education.

Each chapter gives a contemporary account of developments in the field, and looks to the future and the directions that new activity and inquiry are likely to take. All the chapters are written from an international perspective.
