Learning as Development : Rethinking International Education in a Changing World Hardback
Learning is the foundation of the human experience.
It begins at birth and never stops, a continuous and malleable link across life stages of human development.
Disparities in learning access and outcomes around the world have deep consequences for income, social mobility, health, and well-being.
For international development practitioners faced with today's unprecedented environmental and geopolitical pressures, learning should be viewed as a touchstone and target for those seeking to truly effect global change.
This book traces the path of international development work-from its pre-colonial origins to the emergence of economics as the dominant discipline in the field-and lays out a new agenda for policymakers, researchers, and practitioners, from early education through adulthood.
Learning as Development is an attempt to rethink international education in a changing world.
