Pub. Date:
Twenty-three international academics, researchers, education development specialists, consultants, and policymakers contribute 14 chapters on the educational systems of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. Following an introductory overview, each of the remaining chapters focuses on the system of one specific country in the region. Each chapter contains an historical and contemporary analysis of the country's educational system, with a description of how schooling is related to national culture, religion, identity, social, political, and economic structures, and economic development. Also included are everyday examples of what schools in each country are like, and how curriculum and teaching practices reflect larger cultural, social, religious, and historical patterns of each society. For students of education and teachers interested in learning about educational systems in different parts of the world. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
