International Perspectives on Alternative Education: Policy and Practice

Gillean McCluskey, Martin Mills

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract / Description of output

‘Alternative education’ encompasses a diversity of schooling types and organizations. International Perspectives on Alternative Education explores alternative forms of schooling from the position of academics, policy workers and those working and studying in such schools across the world. The first-hand accounts by those working and leading in alternative schools, and the analyses by those working at the policy level, bring alive their dilemmas and challenges. Complementing these are the academic contributions, which examine over-arching questions about social justice and the meanings of achievement, success, choice and purpose across education.

The issue of ‘alternative education’ and why it is relevant in today’s educational landscape is an international one, and the book draws on contributions from Australia, Indonesia, Korea, Denmark, England, Germany, Scotland and the United States. The book will be of interest to all educators, teachers, academics, students, policy workers and others concerned about issues of social justice and education.
