Private Schools in Ten Countries : Policy and Practice, Hardback Book

Private Schools in Ten Countries : Policy and Practice Hardback

Edited by Geoffrey Walford

Part of the Routledge Revivals series



First published in 1989, Private Schools in Ten Countries provides a much needed comparative study, examining private schooling in England and Wales, Scotland, the USA, Canada, Australia, France, West Germany, the Netherlands and Japan.

The authors, all experts in their field, describe the nature and extent of private schooling in an historical, economic, and social context.

They discuss government policy and assess the available evidence on the relationship between attendance at a public school and the maintenance of inequalities in that society.

Unique in its discussion of private schooling in a range of countries this book will enable educationists, politicians and policy makers to look beyond the confines of their own country and to give constructive consideration to the variety of ways in which education can be provided and funded
