With international schools so widespread throughout the world ( and employing more than 100,000 teachers in Europe and the US alone), this is the first book to discuss the quality standards that the schools' organizing bodies are now addressing in a move to ensure that their teaching and organization are of a uniformly high standard.The editors draw on their own professional experience to examine issues affecting all international schools, whatever their location, and present contributions from international experts in the field on a wide ranging of topics, including quality in the classroom; inclusive education; assessment approaches; student mobility, teacher recruitment, support and continuing professional development; models of management; school effectiveness and school improvement; international schools and local communities; accreditation.
"The earlier collection" International Education: Principles and Practice" (1998), was a seminal work in the field, and this book follows in that tradition. The book as a whole is practitioner oriented... but also contains some very sophisticated and interesting theoretical work. Highly recommended for professionals, researchers, and practitioners." -- CHOICE
