Comparative Education: The Dialectic of the Global and the Local, Second Edition examines the common problems facing education systems around the world as the result of global economic, social, and cultural forces. Issues related to the governance, financing, provision, processes, and outcomes of education systems for differently situated social groups are described and analyzed in specific regional, national, and local contexts. Added in this edition is a concluding chapter by Carlos Torres describing the current challenges and new directions for scholarship and teaching in comparative education. Chapters discussing education in the United States, Latin America, the Middle East, Russian/Eastern Europe, and Africa have been updated to reflect the changes in these regions and emerging educational trends and politics.
