Product description

Product Description

The foundation of the first international schools of the modern era well over a century ago, and their burgeoning growth over recent years, provides the context in this book for a series of personal perspectives written by some of those who have been involved centrally in their development. As the schools themselves have increased not only in number and geographical distribution but also in diversity of style and ownership, so have a range of complex issues arisen relating to their fundamental purposes, the curricula that they choose (what should be taught and what should be learned), the nature of their organization (including leadership and management), and their potential contributions in responding to a perceived global need and in influencing the promotion of international education in national systems of schools. The distinguished group of authors contributing to this volume identify the current issues surrounding the rapid evolution of international schools and likely future directions of development, based on their own impressive personal and professional experience of the sector. That both comparative and international education genres are to be found in approaches taken in the various chapters means that the book will be of interest and value not only to teachers in international schools, but also to those working in national schools and to researchers in colleges and universities worldwide.
