Routledge Studies in Education Reform

Series Editors:

This book series is devoted to the discussion of education reform and the policy, implementation and challenges that such reform entails. In countries around the world today – from the Canada, the United States and United Kingdom in the west, to China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore in the east – education ministries and departments are implementing reforms of various scales, and scholars are engaged in consultancy and research that reveal diverse effects and recommendations. This series will provide a forum for such research and enable researchers, policy makers and educational leaders to engage in the on-going discussion of education reforms and the issues related to their implementation, policy implications and key challenges faced on the ground.
