This book presents a clear overview of the debates that surrounded the making of the 1944 Act, which affected every aspect of education in this country. It gives a detailed account of the tripartite divisions into 'three types of child' that were sanctioned in the reforms of the 1940s. At the same time, it also emphasises the idea of education as a civic project which underlay the reforms and which was such an important part of their lasting authority. The education policies of the past decade and the current attempts to shape a new education settlement need to be interpreted in a long-term historical framework and in particular, in relation to the aims and problems of the last great cycle of reform in the 1940s. This book makes an important contribution to the development of such a framework and the social history of education policy in this country.

Why has educational reform failed? Why do we need to bring teachers back into the process? For many years, education reform has been imposed on teachers in many parts of the world. Teachers have had little or no voice in the changes that have been foisted on them. Overload, burnout, demoralization, poor implementation, and a rush for early retirement have been widespread consequences. Positive educational change is needed more than ever, but in a way that puts teachers in the vanguard of it, rather than making them its marginalized victims. It is time to bring teachers back in. It is time to look at educational change and teachers' involvement in it with fresh, more generous eyes. The writers in this book do just that. All are recognized international experts in educational reform. For them, positive educational change means strong emphasis on professional development; ensuring that every school and department becomes a strong professional community; valuing not vilifying educational research; putting teachers in charge of standards and change; giving schools more flexibility over curriculum and assessment, not less; and seeing our educational past as something to be built on, not castigated and forgotten. Existing educational reform strategies are becoming exhausted. It is time for a better way. These writers identify the new directions that lie before us in England, Australia, North America and Japan.

Approaches and methods in comparative education research are of obvious importance, but do not always receive adequate attention. This book contributes new insights within the longstanding traditions of the field. A particular feature is the focus on different units of analysis. Individual chapters compare places, systems, times, cultures, values, policies, curricula, and other units. The chapters are contextualized within broader analytical frameworks which identify the purposes and strengths of the field. The book includes focus on intra-national as well as cross-national comparisons, and highlights the value of approaching themes from different angles. The book will be of great value not only to producers of comparative education research but also to consumers who wish to understand more thoroughly the parameters and value of the field. It will be a leading volume in comparative education research methodology.
