International handbook of education and development : preparing schools, students, and nations for the twenty-first century

edited by William K. Cummings and Noel F. McGinn

This handbook brings together in one volume an international panel of authors who tackle the topic of the dissatisfaction with education systems worldwide. This collection of chapters attempts to provide a comprehensive definition of the reasons for discontent. Split into two parts, the first part begins with descriptions of the origins of the modern system of public education in various countries and regions. Emphasis is put on the engineering of public education to respond to political and economic requirements of the State. This is followed by a description of how changes in the requirements of the State have led to efforts to adjust to modern education, without radical transformation. The second part describes radical changes in the foundation and structure of life and thought in modern societies, and then argues that education systems must be transformed radically in order to serve changed societies.
