This study analyzes the comprehensive public high school as both a policy ideal and a social institution by contrasting the development of the public high school in Australia with both the UK and the US. It focuses on such issues as: changing policy approaches to public high schooling, the "middle class flight" to private schools, how school systems in Australia respond to changes in international education policy, and the tensions between regional, state and national decision-making groups interested in reforming secondary schools policy.

Adapting to a Changing World was commissioned by the National Science Foundation to examine the present status of undergraduate physics education, including the state of physics education research, and, most importantly, to develop a series of recommendations for improving physics education that draws from the knowledge we have about learning and effective teaching. Our committee has endeavored to do so, with great interest and more than a little passion. The Committee on Undergraduate Physics Education Research and Implementation was established in 2010 by the Board on Physics and Astronomy of the National Research Council. This report summarizes the committee's response to its statement of task, which requires the committee to produce a report that identifies the goals and challenges facing undergraduate physics education and identifies how best practices for undergraduate physics education can be implemented on a widespread and sustained basis, assess the status of physics education research (PER) and discuss how PER can assist in accomplishing the goal of improving undergraduate physics education best practices and education policy.

Over the past decade there has been radical reform at all levels of China’s education system as it attempts to meet changing economic and social needs and aspirations. Changes have been made to pedagogy and teacher professional learning and also to the curriculum - both at the basic education level, from kindergarten to year 12, and at the higher education level. This book focuses on reform at the early childhood, primary and secondary levels, and is the companion book to China’s Higher Education Reform and Internationalisation, which covers reform at the higher education level. Education Reform in China outlines the systematic transformation that has occurred of school curriculum goals, structure and content, teaching and learning approaches, and assessment and administrative structures, including the increasing devolvement of control from the centre to provincial, district and school levels. As well as illustrating the changes that are occurring within classrooms, it demonstrates the continuity of cultural and educational ideas and values in the midst of these changes, showing that reform does not just involve the adoption of foreign ideas, but builds on and even resurrects traditional Chinese educational values. Importantly, it considers how exchanges of people and ideas can contribute to new ways of working between Western and Chinese educational systems.

Educational policies and plans for Italy's entire education system are evaluated in this report. Part One contains "The Examiners' Report;" Part Two, the "Record of the Review Meeting;" and Part Three, a "Summary of the Background Report" (prepared by the Italian authorities). Some results of the evaluation include the following. Italy must cope with the consequences of higher enrollments in post-school education and with major structural reforms at all educational levels. While the establishment of a common school at the lower secondary level and the 1979 curricular reforms were well conceived, problems of implementation remain. Successful experimental programs have not been replicated. Middle school students need more guidance. There is discontinuity in the curriculum of the upper secondary school. The general education curriculum is too rigid. Elementary and secondary teachers should not be trained separately; universities should be made responsible for all teacher education. Possible remedies to drawbacks of Italy's open access to higher education include the introduction of a two-year diploma and the creation of short-cycle vocational courses. (RM)
