Oliver Boyd-Barrett and Pam O'Malley have brought together a collection of the best recently published and specially commissioned articles which chart the rapid and extensive process of education reform in Spain over the last two decades.
The articles cover in detail all the key measures of reform and the relevant changes in legislation and government policy since the 1970 "Ley General de Educacion." They also set these changes within the context of the contemporary historical background. The book shows that throughout, the process of reform in Spain has been characterized by both idealism and determination, and has been notable for its sheer pace. Topics covered include democratization and decentralization, curriculum reform, vocational and technical education and partners in education such as teacher unions and governors.
This book is a significant contribution to the study of worldwide processes of education reform and will be of interest to comparative educationalists, those who have a professional interest in education in Spain and anyone with a more general interest in early modern Spain.
