Almost every Education Studies degree includes an element of comparative education, and this book provides an accessible undergraduate-level introduction to the theme. It begins by defining what is meant by the term acomparative educationa and examines the benefits of studying it to students, policy makers, educators and academics. The book then takes a largely age-phase approach with a comparative analysis of selected education systems from around the world, including the impact of globalisation.
