This article compares the cost-effectiveness of private and government secondary schools in Uganda, where student learning is the measure of effect. The research design includes a measure of prior learning, enabling the researchers to hold constant the effects of ability while comparing a unit measure of learning per dollar of expenditure in private and government schools. Similar to findings of other scholars, the authors conclude that there is substantial evidence in favor of private secondary schools in Uganda as more cost effective than government institutions.

by Donald Cowan - 1981
Peter Abbs, a highly persuasive lecturer in education at Sussex University, has buckled on armor to challenge society-in the United States as well as Britain-through a radical revisioning of the aims of contemporary education. The three books here under review set forth the present state of his challenge: first, a bill of particulars against a civilization dominated by a voracious industry and, second, a proposal for correction through the establishment of a single small college devoted to the formation of teachers capable of raising up a new, truly human, generation.

by Brian Holmes - 1972

by Lewis Feuer - 1969
Japan, after delighting Dewey with its colorfulness and grace, with its courtesy and the gaiety of its children at play, posed for him problems which he did not know how to answer. Its liberals seemed to him lacking in moral stamina, its teachers spokesmen for the militarists, and its education an indoctrination in mythology. This was a country which seemed to exemplify a Marxian pattern of social classes and political structure, and to defy the application of Dewey's method of intelligence. There was little he could finally tell Japan's liberals, and it left Dewey with a kind of despondency.

by Ella Griffin - 1967
Today, most children in the economically advanced and technologically developed countries take education at all levels for granted. Education is compulsory, and there are adequate resources to provide enough schools, teachers, and teaching materials for all the children of all people. Yet, even in the United States of America, there is still much to be done in backward areas of the country where education has long been substandard.

by Yong Zhao - 2011
American policy makers and pundits are in love with some foreign education systems and are working hard to bring their policies and practices home. Many presently proposed reform policies and practices are rationalized based on international comparisons. But is this infatuation justified? What can we really learn from other countries?

by Ronald Byrnes - 2012
Most efforts to improve schooling in the United States have limited impact because opinion leaders’ repeated appeals to global economic competitiveness and national greatness don't inspire teachers and students. Educators and citizens need to challenge narrow utilitarian assumptions about the purposes of schooling and instead frame teaching as a profoundly challenging, rewarding, and important form of community service.
