Many school decision-makers and educational practitioners talk about developing an ultimate school work environment, but few actually move beyond the talk. It is very common for individuals in positions of power to make statements about how great it is to work in the school while the rest of the employees know the “real” work situation. The information in this book helps administrators to move beyond words and discover what it takes to turn words into reality and actually transform a school into an ultimate school work environment.

We are constantly told that New Labour forms an historic departure from the traditions of the Labour Party. This book, written by a distinguished selection of academics and commentators, provides the most detailed comparison yet of old and new Labour in power. It is also the first to offer a comprehensive analysis of the last Labour Government before the rise of Thatcher and the re-emergence of the Labour Party under Tony Blair's leadership. It reveals much about the history of the Labour Party as well as providing a much-needed context from which to judge the current government.

In our rapidly changing global environment where learning methods, styles and access vary dramatically it is increasingly necessary to stimulate conversation around drastically revolutionizing education. In You Can’t Make a Fish Climb Trees: Overcoming Educational Malpractice through Authentic Learning author and scholar Lawrence Muganga advocates for educational transformation and exposes our archaic education systems modeled for nineteenth-century Europe, which has allowed governments and administrators to structure and deliver education as if it were an assembly line. The current model largely discounts students’ individual differences and natural abilities impacting their ability to transition from the classroom into the workforce. While he focuses on the need for more dynamic education models in Sub-Saharan Africa, Muganga establishes applications for the presence of Authentic Learning—where teaching happens in a student-centered environment filled with real-world applications—throughout the global community. Drawing from the research of educational experts worldwide, he advocates for the kind of revolutionized education model that would see students’ individuality used to empower them so that they can navigate their future and the workforce successfully.

As the centre of the world economy is moving to Asia, lifelong learning in Asia is attracting a great deal of attention in the educational field worldwide. Asia not only provides the largest education market, but also plays an increasingly important role in educational globalization. However, until now, only very limited literature has been available in English. This book addresses that gap and introduces global readers to the latest developments of theories, policies, and practical issues concerning lifelong learning in East Asia. Case studies on lifelong learning in East Asia - including mainland China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau - are provided in this book. Lifelong learning in East Asia has been strongly influenced by Confucian culture as well as Western capitalism. This book analyses Confucian culture and the negotiation of Chinese and Western learning cultures in lifelong learning. This book will enable educators to understand the recent developments in lifelong learning in selected Confucian-heritage countries and regions, and promote effective international collaboration in lifelong learning worldwide. This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of Lifelong Education.

An enduring educational concern that has plagued researchers and policy makers in a number of affluent countries is the endemic nature of educational inequalities. These inequalities highlight distinct differences in the educational skills, knowledge, capabilities and credentials between learners’ demographic characteristics. They also point to issues of educational disadvantage that emanate from a combination of factors including family life, communities, the geographies of space and place, gender and ethnicity. This book examines some of the causes and responses to educational inequalities, and focuses upon poor urban contexts where educational disadvantage is at its most concentrated, and where educational policy and practice has, over time, proliferated. It questions how wider inequities experienced by young people in urban contexts generate educational inequalities and disadvantage, detailing explicitly what an equitable approach to education might look like. Included in the book is an innovative educational equity framework and toolkit with illustrative policy and practice case studies, bringing together unique scholarship and analysis to examine future educational policy in a holistic, comprehensive and equitable way. It will be valuable reading for postgraduate students, researchers and policy makers with an interest in education and educational equity.
