Reviews

'An excellent volume that reveals the diversity and complexity of education in Asia. A powerful counter discourse to the oversimplification of Asian education by international assessment programs. The Handbook of Schools and Schooling in Asia is a great reference for anyone interested in Asian education.'- Yong Zhao, Foundation Distinguished Professor, School of Education, University of Kansas, USA. Author of Reach for Greatness: Personalizable Education for All

'This Handbook on Schools and Schooling in Asia, and an earlier companion volume, The changing Role of Schools in Asian Societies - Schools for the knowledge Society, both edited by K. Kenndy and Lee C.K. are very welcome additions to a growing literature on education trends and issues in Asian education in the new century. In a region characterised by many success and formidable challenges, and now gearing to meet 21st century challenges, there is need for scholarly work written by both insiders and experts from outside the region. Comprehensive in nature, with 100 chapters organised via 19 sections provide both coverage an insightful analysis. The editors have skillfully managed to provide both coherence and diversity; resulting in a volume that successfully captures and region's diversity and education potential.

An invaluable reference for graduate students in international and comparative education, Asian studies and global education-oriented NGOs.' - S. Gopinathan, Adjunct Professor, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore.
